“It is not fair calling Australia “the land of the Kookaburra”. What a cheek! I am a beautiful swamp hen. I also live in Australia. And look at the fantastic way that I walk. Eat your heart out, Kookaburra!”😊

Beautiful flowers from the land of the Kookaburra (Part 1)
Australia is not only the land of the kookaburra. It also has magnificent scenery. There are also many beautiful flowers.
Today my wife and her Australian friend were chatting about this and that and they got onto the subject of the flowers in her Australian garden. We asked her to send some pictures, which she did with some comments.
Here are some of the pictures with comments.

(Did I hear the kookaburra say “The flowers in this garden are fair dinkum”?)
“A hedge of azaleas at our front door”
“Bromeliads…not unlike the stag horn ….”
“That show off kookaburra got in first to introduce the pictures of the flowers. We were busy waiting for fisherman to clean their catch. Our turn, next time.”
