Bushwalk

Taken with mobile phone on a lovely bushwalk. Delighted to find the silver fern’s koru, which signifies ‘new life and growth’, and the face with the cicada nymph exoskeleton as a tattoo!

Avenue of the Giants

29/10/2018

Avenue of the Giants in Northern California runs through Humboldt Redwoods State Park, which is home to the tallest trees in the world, the amazing Redwoods. It is an absolutely beautiful, quiet and peaceful place, and I feel very lucky to have been able to experience it.

Eucalyptus Trees

26/04/2017

Eucalyptus trees are my favourite because of their wonderful fragrance! Of course they also provide delicious food for the koala bear.

Eucalyptus oil has many medicinal properties, and is just a great oil to have in your house. I use a few drops with my (unfragranced) washing powder to wash my clothes and it makes them smell very fresh. A few drops on a cotton wool ball, or wipe makes your toilet smell nice and fresh as well.

How do you use eucalyptus oil or any other essential oil? Please share your tips. Thank you!

Beautiful Heather

Encounter during a bike ride through the forest. It was stunning and it smelt very nice with the warmth of the sun shining on it all day.

Jellies

12/06/2014

At the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California they have an array of jellies, or jellyfish as they are also called. They are fascinating and fun to watch and have a calming effect, the way they slowly float and move around in the water. The beautiful blue background also helps. I had wanted to post a video, so you could enjoy this calming quality too, but unfortunately WordPress does not let me import mp4’s. I have yet to figure out how I can do this, and will post the video once I have found out. Meanwhile, any tips for this are very welcome!

Jellies

This one is a rather special one, or so I have been told, as it lives in the total dark (hence if was difficult to photograph). I like how you can see the eye and how it looks like an unidentified flying you know what, and in that respect the white stripe of light in the middle conjures up the words: “Beam me up Scotty”. Lastly, I like the face on the right observing this wonderful jelly.

I would like to add that the mission of the nonprofit Monterey Bay Aquarium is to inspire conservation of the oceans.
