Travel Theme: Flowers

 

I love flowers and the last week was a real flower week for me and it is still flowers for this challenge also.

I love FLOWERS.

The following photos were taken at our annual Fuchsia flower show.

There were so many beauties that I could hardly pick from it.

There were also many begonias.

Hydrangea.

All so colorful.

Then my favourites

ORCHIDS

Cattleya

I took all the photos in 2009 at the show in Lower Hutt,  New Zealand.

Travel theme: Flowers

So this week’s travel theme should be a fairly easy, and hopefully joyful one. I can’t wait to see what flowers you have in your part of the world. If you’d like to join in, create your own post, title it “Travel theme: Flowers” and put a link to this page in your post so others can find it. Don’t forget to check back in next Friday for a new travel theme.

Bring on the flowers!

EMUS

• A large, flightless bird, the emu is the second largest bird after the ostrich. Emus can grow up to 1.9m tall.

• Emus ingest large stones to help them break down their food.

• Female emus will lay up to 15 dark green eggs into a nest built by their mate.

The Emu (play /ˈmjuː/ or /ˈm/;[5] Dromaius novaehollandiae) is the largest bird native to Australia and the only extant member of the genus Dromaius. It is the second-largest extant bird in the world by height, after its ratite relative, the ostrich. There are three subspecies of Emus in Australia. The Emu is common over most of mainland Australia, although it avoids heavily populated areas, dense forest, and arid areas.[6]
