You make even weeds look spectacular.

Can't wait till NBN is connected next Friday here I can start posting photos again. Most I've taken recently have been alright.

I'm on mobile data as my wife's mother needs care so we've had to spend a fair bit of time in Guyra and she doesn't have any internet at all. Can't wait till it's on. Cramps my online style.

It may be a classified as a weed, EM, but it is also a member of the astor family. Hence, the beautiful (except on one's lawn) blooms. Their roots and leaves also provide herbal remedies for a plethora of common ailments not to mention that they are exremely photogenic -- as you've clearly pointed out.

Yes an old favourite. Colourful and full of texture and patterns, an ideal subject.

On the NBN front, we have had it for over 12 months. Probably one of the fortunate ones in that we have optic fibre right to my study. It seems to work quite well, certainly far better than the ADSL2+ we had before.

It is said that the difference between a weed and a flower is judgement. Beautiful shot indeed and good for eating
