Merry X


  1. Merry Xmas, too!

    That first scene tells me I'm not in the Americas, anymore...not even San Diego even with the distant Norfolk Island Pine (?).

    I can feel your mid-summer heat down-under in those colorful photos! Needed that since it's a whole 11C/52F to my mtn bike ride, before it gets darker and chillier...

  2. Thanks david. you are almost right about the Araucaria ... Australia inherited 3 of this family from Gondwanaland! Technically the Norfolk is an off shore species though! This is the Bunya-Bunya (A. Bidwillii) my favourite and the other is the fabulous 'Hoop Pine' (A. cunninghamiana) which can be seen in my latest loot of snaps!
