In The Leafy Tree Tops

The trees in Australia enchant us. Forever more when we think of our time here we will remember the wonderful people we have met, the noisy, singing abundent birds and the fabulous trees. We have marvelled at artic beech trees in the rain forrest, magnificent banyan trees that children can play hide and seek among their roots, vine entwined trees, gum trees that line the banks of the rivers and roadways. The beautiful jacaranda trees that bloom purple in the spring and the aptly named bottle tree. One day we were driving in an area called New Farm and we happened upon Abbott street. The pavement goes around the trees and the trees look like chandeliers! We love all these truly amazing trees!

Earth With Her Ten Thousand Flowers... Bear This Record, God Is Love

Toowoomba is known as the Garden City of Australia. Every spring they have a flower festival where people can go and view the gardens, public and private. We spent a day with the flowers, flowering shrubs and blooming trees. We hope you enjoy the pictures, if only we could include the beautiful, sweet, floral aroma!
