Constitution Dock, Hobart. Saw this very large ship (relative to me, not necessarily to other ships!). I immediately recognised it as 'the Australian icebreaker', I'm not sure why??? Googled it tonight and found I was almost right... Aurora Australis.
The sunset had painted the clouds a very complimentary orange/pink colour.

I have been watching a succulent plant outside the kitchen window for the last couple of weeks. It has started to flower (spring must be on its way! Yay) and I finally managed a half decent photo of it. A couple of years ago I watched, entranced as a plant around the corner from home started to flower. The 'tree' was about 3 metres high and then a stalk started to grow from the centre. It grew another 3 metres at least and had the most wonderful spray of white flowers in a similar style to this photo. The really really good bit was that the flower stalk grew from nothing to 3 metres in only a couple of weeks! Amazing...
PS: How much deeper would the oceans be if sponges didn't exist?

The days are short, the sun stays hidden. Staying in bed with a book is a thing to look forward to... Spring isn't far away (well we are half way through winter) so a nice flower photo to whet the appetite...
Before you hassle me about spelling; to whet is 'to sharpen'... :)
