After attending an old colleague's Retirement Breakfast this morning my friend Ro and I decided a walk was needed to make up for the bacon and egg on a muffin that we had scoffed for breaky.
We have a suburban shoppingcentre not too far away so we walked in the winter sunshine through this pretty neighbourhood park to get there.
After a nice cappacino ( and raisin toast - but that was lunch !!!) we walked home again and on our way we came upon this symbol of Australia just beginning to bloom.
I just love it -the smell just makes me think of Australia.
and those sunny yellow flowers ........
