The school holidays have ended but we certainly had a great time. Lots of art and craft, picnics every day, friends over for play dates, and some adventuring in the undergrowth of the garden borders.
Macleay Museum's rare papier-mache anatomical models. William was made in France in 1861 by Auzoux (1797-1880). The Museum, in the University of Sydney, has the most wonderful collection of scientific models made for teaching purposes. This next photo is a model of a horse's heart, I think my favourite piece in the exhibition.
The bush was grey a week today,
Olive green and brown and grey,
But now the spring has come to stay,
With blossoms for the wattle.
It seems to be a fairy tree,
And dances to to a melody,
It sings its little song to me,
The graceful swaying wattle.
Different Wattle trees flower from about now in autumn right through summer, so there is generally a wattle tree flowering somewhere in Australia. Always a little piece of sunshine somewhere.
Another ramble through my days; surely soon I'll be able to devote a post to books or metal. Fingers crossed...
A real mixed bag
