Brisbane from the river

The Brisbane River meanders through the city. Here are some scenes around the river:

Scenes from Brisbane - GOMA

While in Brisbane, we visited the Gallery of Modern Art, where I was fascinated by this sculpture made by wrapping things together with yarn. You could even walk into it and look up through it. It was a community project and people contributed items to be included. I love it but, unfortunately, forgot to take any notes about the artist.

Midginbil Hill Farm

We spent a delightful weekend at Midginbil Hill Farm in north-east New South Wales. The weather was warm and sunny (a pleasant change from the weather we'd been experiencing in Canberra in the previous week) and I enjoyed wandering around and snapping things that caught my attention.

Banksia

Budding staghorn fern (I think)

Fungi

We have had over 200mm of rain in the past week. In fact, by 8am on 1 March, we had received the average rainfall for the month - and there's been a lot more since. We went out for a walk this afternoon when it stopped raining and found lots of interesting mushrooms/toadstools (I can't remember the difference between them).
