Camels in Hunter Street Mall?

Such a great tip to hear Silas Moss in ABC1233 Newcastle Radio this morning recommend a free children's event in Newcastle's Hunter Street Mall.  And we were promised CAMELS!

Loved watching them chew the cud with an insolent middle eastern air.  Big blinking eyes and wide pad feet too.

Merewether Garden Ideas

Have been finishing off the backyard stairs, and took out some time for some shots of the blooming garden. As you know I love tree ferns - here are some images of the emerging unfurling fronds uncurling...

See the defensive hairs on the frond?  Who would think this will be three meters across in a few weeks?
This is what I think is the rough tree fern - it has a rougher leaf structure and is definitely different to the cyathea cooperi.
Almost embryonic - can you see the arms and legs on this little guy?
