Scented Sundew. I showed this carniverous plant a couple of weeks ago before it flowered. now there are
Early Nancy [ about 1/4″ across ] This one is REALLY hard to find as there are only a few of them spread over the 10 acres and they bloom for about 2 weeks of the year. Last year I missed them completely. This one is a male flower and the female is similar with a slightly different centre and often only a single bloom. Apparently they occasionally throw up a hermaphroditic form as well. Who knew? Kinky floral sex in Central Vic!
>It seems there is a growing trend of which I was until this past week or so completely unaware and I’m not quite so how the genesis of such a truly important trend managed to pass me by, seeing as the wilds of Central Victoria is usually such a hotbed of all that is ‘new’ and ‘up-to-the-minute'[ that was sarcasm in case you missed it ]
Yes I’m talking about the cat yoga again.
You may remember that Suki is the one responsible for introducing Sophie to this esoteric eastern art
so I was rather happy when in a nice piece of serendipity, I found THIS waiting for me at my favourite second hand book store [ and before you ask, Val, not the one at Campbell’s Creek … Soldier and Scholar, the smaller one in Barker Street opposite the Library ]
HE says it’s because yoga poses are not conducive to the gravitas required of the more ‘mature’ purrson.
>Nadie and The Boy looked after Riley on Friday night and she was under orders to make sure that there was plenty of photographic proof [ as I haven’t seen him since April, which is a whole other story ]
Being a thoughtful and dutiful daughter, and needing no encouragement whatsoever for the wielding of the camera, she duly obliged:
My grandson is now blonde apparently and no curls. Completely takes after his mum, that one.
In a showing of great restraint, I’ve just pinched this one photo from his besotted aunt so if you absolutely need to see more baby photos, you can follow over there.
>My friend ‘Jane’ and I have long known that Ms Moggie and Sophie are identical twins separated at birth – except for them being different ages – and back in May I left a comment or two on her Blog. Today, she decided to update that post by adding a photo of Soph. So now you can all judge the similarity for yourselves. That’s Sophie at the bottom.
Meanwhile Caramel would like to introduce you to the new love of her life: BBB [ big brown bear ] She’s currently spending hours a day giving him back massages. How do you feel about interspecies relationships? Do you think they have a future together ?
Found these buttons at the Central Goldfields Gallery, Maryborough for $3 a card of two. The maker is Jean Taylor from Bendigo. No email or website details but there’s a phone number.
I have absolutely no idea what I’m going to do with them but I don’t really think that’s relevant. They are beautiful objects in their own right. For the time being I’ll probably just add them to my bowl of japanese blue and white beads and balls.
ETA [again] well there weren’t any more at the Gallery on Wednesday this week but I’ve just come back from an event there tonight where I met the button lady herself. I’ve ordered another two cards and she’s also okayed putting the phone # here for any of you aussies that might be interested. So :  54418070
