Nothofagus cunninghamii


Tasmania is covered in Myrtle Beech. And the trees are covered with lichens. It is cool and otherwordly standing in the green light, quietly awe-inspired.

phoebe fay: You are a cracker of a woman. You make this community richer by being in it.

jedimac: I wish I could say you too are a cracker of a woman. Instead I will say - your infantile gutter mind is a joy to behold.

sara sue: And you. What can I say? You are a bloody marvelous sheila.

I'm a bit high folks. The Desiccated Coconut has lost the election- and possibly his seat. Oh happy day.

I haven't been to Myrtle Beach is a long time

Myrtle Beach is a hell hole.

Your Myrtle Beech is fascinating.

Your pictures are forcing me to spend all the money I have to go to your country.

Sara Sue said...

WOOT!! I only hope your election is a sign of what's to come here next year!

Lovely, lovely tree. Reminds me of the moss and lichen-covered trees in the US Northwest. Been waiting with bated breath to hear your and the Reverend's reactions to your elections.

malach: If it's a good thing to do, don't put it off. My new motto is - don't wait for an invitation.

cuntie: We'd love to have you.

sara sue: So do we all.

hereT: Then you'll be pleased with the series of trees I'm going to post in the coming week.

Only once in our history has a sitting Prime Minister lost his seat, and that was 90 years ago. That he may have lost his seat to a marvelous strong female journalist of impeccable integrity, good humour and largeness of heart is utterly thrilling. It's not cerrtain at this stage - she's leading him by .7% with the postal vote uncounted, but it's brillliant anyway.

What is certain is that he & his party have been soundly & roundly trounced by the Labor party, and Tintin is our new Prime Minister. In parliament 9 years, leader of his party less than a year, with another great strong Union woman as his deputy. And a fabbo wife with a big life of her own - and her own surname.

Kevin '07 - heaven.

Ok, now we're all jealous over here. You have great trees and a shiny new government.

Chickie said...

I can see from Jedimacfan's comment that I'm not the only perv in the bunch.

Cissy Strutt said...

colonel: Can I just say - yay! And also - go and do the same.

chickie: Oh it's an open-perv policy here at Ginger Stick. A day without a perv is a day wasted.
