How can it be beanie weather again already?
Today Mr Duck and I went up into the mountains for a walk and a picnic. Some might say it is a long way to go to read the papers. But I don't mind.
We went to visit the Bendoura Aboretum, which is about 70 years old, up along the Brindabella Range in the Namadji National Park. Its only about 40 minutes from Duck Central. About 1500 meters above sea level. positively giddy!
My what long licorice legs you have my darling.
Cool. Different. Weird. There are lots of different types of pine trees. Mostly from different parts of America. I looked for Oklahomian ones, but there were none that I could see. It was arboreta like this one that helps stupid Australians decide to decimate native forests and replace them with pinus ratiata plantations. sigh.
