Other Harvests

Melbourne's blazing sun is doing its magic at the backgarden - but on the downside some of the more sensitive plants are taking a beating with the full sun in all its glory.

some of the tomatoes are ripe and ready

this is a spring onion. possibly on some serious steroids. they are huge!!! 

waiting patiently for the green ones - while some of the leaves get burned out

baby potatoes - these spuds came from old potatoes from a colleague's pantry
they were growing those little nodes, so they were saved from the bin,and just out of sheer curiosity, i stuck them into the ground.
and voila! baby potatoes! dug out from the garden!

possibly navel oranges. we'll know later!

Scribe's Notes : Excess Baggage

This just makes you want to be really careful in selecting the bag you use, and the quality of the zipper/lock :)

Flight - Barcelona to Dublin (connecting flight to Boston for most of the passengers)

The pilot was 'apologetic for the delays' without saying the exact reason why, but because I was looking at this situation I knew what was going on! (and just like a true shutterbug, my backup digicam was in my pocket, for reasons such as these!)

the luggage just BURST OPEN and the man handling it was just simply surprised at what happened.
i think it was a faulty zipper.
the crew saw me watching and with his hands up in the air in exasperation, he knew he had no choice
but to put all the stuff back in! 

unfortunate. guess what the violet colored fabric was.

after asking someone to fetch the packaging tape, the luggage was taped all over.
just like massive bandage.
no the broken luggage wasn't mine - although upon arrival at Dublin i had some delays in getting my bag as it was mixed up with the other baggages going to Boston!

So that's what those massive cling wrap devices in the airport are for - to avoid things like these! :)

Shelled Ones

This one was found at the front garden on a summer's day

which brought back wonderful memories of its cousin found on the other side of the planet, one winter day

go for escargot at Saint Michel Restaurant, along the Seine in Paris

ripe and red
the green one was an accident!!!

Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
