In Full Bloom, Despite The Morning Frost
On Friday, while doing a major highway drive into the bush (aka the Outback) I decided to pull into Glenrowan for breakfast. Not far from where the giant statue of the infamous bushranger (aka an outlaw) Ned Kelly stands in the town, I found Linda's Billy Tea Rooms and thought that would be the ideal place for breakfast.
I was right! Not only did Linda herself cook me a huge plate of eggs, bacon and sausages (and a very genteel pot of tea), she was also quite happy for me to wander around and take some photographs.
In her back yard I found this huge flowering shrub that was absolutely covered in clusters of miniature pink-and-white blossoms. Because it's winter here, and because I could not identify the flowers, I had to march back inside and seek her guidance. Turns out the shrub is called jade.
Just as I was about to turn away, I heard a distinct buzz - see if you can spot the bee in the image below.
