Good grief, #Melbourne, get a grip!

I missed last night's #earthquake - probably throught it was just a passing goods train and instantly washed it from my memory.

I remember the Great Quake of Sept 2021 and the obsessive media focus on the one building - just around the corner from us - that lost a bit of wall. And I remember the one from June 2012.

There's been more quakes than that, of course -

Meanwhile, here's how they roll over in the Shaky Islands: @eqnz

@maegul I saw one Mastodon post about the earthquake in my timeline and it used the hashtag #Melbourne, and not #earthquake. That led me to a number of other posts about the quake. (This is *not* an argument against your point about search — just an observation.)

I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area, and one reason I joined was so my local timeline would light up in case of an earthquake. But we get quakes more often than you do.

#MaidOfTheMist or the #Gladiolus dalenii is a flowering plant in the iris family.

I’ve driven past the front garden where these are growing all week, and haven’t been able to stop. But today I made an exception and disregarded the steady falling rain to snap a few pics to share.

So glad I did because up close they’re just stunning.

These (pictured) are one of the most widely distributed species of Gladiolus, ranging from eastern South Africa and Madagascar throughout tropical Africa and into western Arabia.

This garden has heaps. And the colours are dynamic and bright.

A large #japanesemaple for your Saturday viewing. From #melbourne #Australia.

#autumn is such a lovely time of the year and so many visually hedonistic delights are on offer!

This maple is stunning in the morning sunshine, couldn’t resist stopping, snapping and sharing.

About ten distinct leaves in the foreground and a mass of foliage; leaves and branches blurred in the background with patches of light blue sky.

Each leaf has I believe five to six individual fingers (portions), medium sized growths, spanning outward from the middle part, that end at a point at the tip. Each leaf is around 100 millimetres (4 inches in diameter). 

The general colour of the leaves range between yellow, a handful display in light green, burnt orange and light red. They appear bright as the morning sun is shining from the back of the photographer and onto the leaf surface. They’re truly gorgeous.

Just look at this cute mural created by Melbourne’s own, artist #Juzpop.

It features on a feature wall, opposite the bar in the city’s #herosmelbourne and was painted June last year.

I love the fem strength and sass of this woman featured. So too the gorgeous flowers and foliage that sits around the main feature.

Oh, and that pretty #butterfly… oh so good!

Justine (Juzpop) nailed this mural perfectly, matching perfectly with the vibe of this bar, in #melbourne #Australia.

Currently you get a wall of text, or best case scenario, a wall of calendar items, making it very difficult to see if your journey is affected or not.

I just love this mural. I’ve posted some time ago, but can’t get enough of it

Found it again in my travels recently.

The #rosella is astonishingly good. So too the #wombat to the right of scene in the second pic.

Painted by in 2019, this scene complements another painted on brick, just off Acland Street in StKilda. It has the same humanoid figures and #Australiana themes.

I’ll visit that and feature it here, sometime in the not too distant future.

This mural (pictured in this post) however, is located in #Bentleigh #Australia.

Gorgeous, and intriguing huh?

This scene takes in a portion of a larger mural (around 20 metres wide) on a brick wall. This section of the scene is around 4 metres wide by 4 metres high, with a vibrant rosella mid flight, tilted slightly flying from left to right, zooming through the air. 

The bird is looking at the observer (the camera) almost with human intelligence in its eye. Has various blue coloured wings, spread wide and individual / distinct feathers showing. Great painted detail. Very detailed. 

Its back and body is adorned with red and a bit of black individual feathers and it’s head is red, darker blue chin, grey curved beak and black eye. 

It’s a side shot and the bird almost has what appears to be a grin… most certainly has a cheeky look in its eye. 

Riding on its back (closer to its neck) is a slim and slender humanoid woman (has breasts) in a teal
Coloured skin suit. 

The woman has flowing blonde hair, flowing in the wind, but no face. It looks like a light brown (perhaps skin tone) disc, for a face. 

It is a real fun scene.

This little crazy critter was pecking at the dried sap on this gumtree.

It’s a #noisyminor. I love them!

It hung upside down for a good while and flitted about flapping its wings, though was in full control and a bird on a mission!

Noticed too, this gum tree had a bulge near the base of its trunk. See last pic. Some may think it an anomaly or even unsightly. I thought it unique and quite appealing.

I’m astounded at the various species of native #bottlebrush that adorns our beautiful country.

These ones are no exception. I love the long stems, covered in pink hair-like spikes. They are so pretty.

These flowering bushes in this close-up shot show a few long stems that are displayed horizontally. Each stem is around 20 centimetres long and covered with fine spikey hair-like structures, dozens of them. Maybe a hundred or more. 

The spikes are coloured white (each about 2 cm in length around the branch’s circumference) and closer to the stalk or branch, which is hidden (the branch), because there is a 1 centimetre growth in diameter around the branch of pretty dark pink flowering material. It is quite a unique looking flowering mass. 

A few small green leaves about the size of a pinky fingernail, protrude out from the branch also. 

At the base of the plant are a greater amount of light green leaves about 5 cm in length. A modest size. 

The plant bush is around 1.8 metres tall and spays out around two metres in circumference. 

Not shown in this shot, but bees were everywhere on this bush, as there were about a half dozen separate shrubs growing in this garden. I observed half a dozen bees on a single flowering stem at one stage.

I believe this is a type of #Hawthorn.

It’s fruit looks delightful.

Bright and vibrant, the fruit even shines in the late afternoon sunlight . It must attract the birds big time.

I think It was this same kind of larger fruiting tree, that was being stripped a few weeks back at sunset, in a leafy #melbourne suburb (near #Kew), by at least 150+ #longbilledcorella.

It was like a scene out of that movie ‘The Birds’… a real mess of leaves, fruit and branches strewn over the road and footpath.

They were screeching and chortling, a real dynamic and noisy scene to behold.

Never quite observed anything like that in suburbia.

This gorgeous Washington Hawthorn (I believe it is) was snapped in #Bentleigh #Australia.

A weed I know.

But clover in any shape, size or variety for mine, is beaut!

Especially the all elusive four leaf!

As a kid, my dad said he’d give me $50 if I ever found a four leaf clover. Hunted for years, found one in my latter years, now preserved between the pages of a book.

Offered the same deal to my two boys a few years back and inflation meant $100.

Im $200 lighter in the bank account, as a result!!

They were super diligent 😂

Hi Jen! Good question!!

Generally Australia does not experience wide spread #snow falls during #winter but we do have what’s knows as our #HighCountry in the State of Victoria.

We do have #snowfields, good skiing in general. Most of Victoria's alpine resorts lie to the north-east of Melbourne. Anywhere from say 2 to 4.5 hrs drive from our capital city Melbs.

These are a few of Victoria’s snowfields: #LakeMountain, #MtBawBaw, #MtBuller and #MtStirling, #MtHotham and #FallsCreek.

These👇are stock photos (source: and various), and #snow will start dumping early next month im guessing.

#newsouthwales has awesome snowfields. The largest ski resort in the #SouthernHemisphere is #Perisher. It has 47 lifts, plenty of runs, five terrain parks and around 100km of cross country trails. In #Thredbo you can ski Australia’s longest runs.

The Australian State of a #Tasmania, the island located to the south of Victoria, experiences flurries and snow falls throughout winter too. It’s closer to the #SouthPole. #Tassie is a gorgeous part of our country. 👏👍

PS I’m sure I’ve left out a load of other locations.

An intriguing building at #StKilda Junction, #Melbourne #Australia.

This design and build has polarised opinion of many #Melburnian’s since it’s completion in 2015.

It’s known as ‘The Icon’ or ‘Lego Building’. It stands at 56 metres tall, divided into six sectional levels…with varying (and may I say; ‘bright’) colours.

The Icon houses 119 apartments within its stacked boxes.

What do you think??

Meet a scary looking critter, the #orbspider, but she’s pretty harmless all the same.

This is a female. They’re the big ones! Males are way-smaller in size.

I saw a heap of these (nearly walked into this one’s web) a week ago, along the #LoddonRiver in #Bendigo #australia.

Australian golden orb weaver:

Found in Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Australia, northern New Zealand, and New Caledonia.

The female typically grows to around 40mm (1.5 inch), whereas males only reach around 7-10mm (quarter to a third of an inch) in length.

It’s web is normally over 1 metre in diameter. Once built, it never leaves its web.

They’re harmless and not poisonous to humans.

Its main predators are birds and parasitic wasps.

Breeds throughout late summer and spring, and produces an average of 380 eggs.

The tiny males tie down the much larger females before mating, weaving silk threads over their abdomens.

Sexual cannibalism is rare with this species, however up to 50% of males are cannibalised throughout the natural course of life, as ‘prey’.

They’re an edible spider and are considered a delicacy in New Guinea. They’re plucked by the legs from their webs and lightly roasted over an open fire. Ummm, no thanks 😳

A lanky legged spider sitting in a thick spider web in wait. It sits, head pointing to the ground, pictured from above. 

The web is thick and is almost luminescent in places where the sun hits its surface. I’m over 6 foot tall and the web surface was from waist to head height, with a network of web threads splaying out in all directions as the-downs, down to knee-high connected to dry grass on the ground, whilst connected to the to the lower parts of the tree tops (Gumtree’s) about 2.5 metres (8 foot) high. 

This female has a large body size; around 5 centimetres from end to end of it’s splayed out legs and it’s black from first observations but has an intricate network of different shades of greys over its back surface. Some patches near it’s head appears silver. The main bulbous body is as large as my thumb nail. 

It’s legs are hairy, short hairs. Grey-white in colour closer to its body and lengths of browns and dark grey to black, the rest of the leg length. 

It’s head is about 1/4 the size of its body and is silver in appearance with half a dozen black patches. At the front of it face you can see two short, thin feelers, I think they’re called. Maybe pincers not sure. 

The background consists of blurred vision of a gumtree trunk, branches, leaves and powder blue skies. 

Another spider, a tiny male; I suspect around 1/4 inch in size shares the web, above this giant huntress!

Was directed to this work-in-progress by a fellow #VisualHedonist around the corner, as we were both taking pictures of a recent mural in #Mckinnon #Australia, lunchtime today.

And OMG, glad I went to have a sticky-beak!!

Such #feminine elegance forming here. Accompanied by leaves, perhaps some roses and plenty of #fem #love!!

I’d suggest this gorgeous piece is about halfway complete and the detail (face, neck, arms, fingers, surrounding scene etc) will take the longest to complete; will be painstaking. Just guessing.

I can see this coming along beautifully, with shading and more depth to come. This will look absolutely breathtaking once complete.

Justine, the creator of this emerging masterpiece took a little time out to chat to passers by and me. This accomplished artist is a marvel to speak to and you can see why she’s an angel who paints from the heart. Just wow and… gosh!

The Melbourne artist (Juzpop) on a small ladder, poised to place brush to the wall, one third up from the ground. 

Painting is partially complete; I’d suggest half-way done, with the basic layers applied on a brick wall about 20 metres in length and 7-8 metres high. This building is an eye sore, an old brown brick telephone exchange building, I know it well. 

The main feature of this creation is a young woman’s face, most likely mid-twenties, pretty, tanned complexion, black hair and red lipstick (face is not complete), with her hands framing her face, blue fingernail polish on right hand (left not yet complete). Her face is surrounded by a sea of blues, purples, reds, pinks and subtle oranges which are to become leaves and foliage of some sort… perhaps in bright and dynamic, typical autumn colours going by the aesthetics thus far! Also roses or some other flower forms are in the making too. I can see this coming along nicely, with shading and more depth and detail to come. This will look absolutely breathtaking once complete. Just wow.

Are there any genuine European-style bakeries in #Melbourne suburbia?

Most of #Europe has bakeries in nearly every village and even the average #bread is om nom nom. 🤤

I haven’t tasted anything like it here, possibly because even the flour has additives, so special preparation doesn’t make much difference?

The ID app tells me this is yet another #Hibiscus in bloom!

#HibiscusMutabilis, also known as the Confederate rose, Dixie rosemallow, cotton rose or cotton rosemallow, is usually a plant grown for its showy flowers. And I can see why!!

Originally native to southern China, it is now found on all continents except Antarctica.

#Melburnians are being treated to a visual feast atm, as they grow sensationally here in suburban Victoria!

This one was photographed in #ashburton #Australia.
