Echidna and Cassowaries

With our exercise radius shrinking, I tore off to The Botanic Gardens for one last circuit with a view.

I was delighted by the echidna that had replaced the koala. Something new in this stagnate, small world.

The whimsy of it gave rise to a joyful feeling that eclipsed the feeling of yet another loss, as the gardens fall in the 5-6 kms radius from my house.

The cassowaries remain unchanged, though this time were dappled in sunlight.

  3. What an interesting place you showed us. And you were very inspired in bonding images and quotes.
    If we pay attention, there are a lot of small things and not spectacular events that can turn our mood in a positive way.
    Thank you for sharing this fabulous area!
    Happy Today and a fine weekend!
