I've had a wonderful day at the Botanic Gardens here in Cairns. Yesterday I spoke at a meeting of the gardeners and let them know I am on the look out for Rainforest fruits, pods, seed capsules and such and today at lunchtime I walked over to the staff precinct and collected what had been gleaned this morning. I was shown the propagating nurseries where I snapped away on the camera and will download later.
Visit the Homage blog to see photos later!
I have cut and past an excerpt below from Things magazine from the V & A Museum people. When I was an avid blogger (shame to admit other things waylay me these days more than I'd like... making my blogs less busy than they once were!) I came across Things Magazine and found more than enough to satisfy my love of the eclectic.
From Maps of Relief at things Magazine:
Relief maps of the Western Front at the Australian War Memorial. Related, 3D relief maps made at The Cutting Room, who have an impressive portfolio ofprojects / Seed Capsules, a tumblr by Sophie Munns / Why I secretly recorded my life / architectural photographer Grant Smith blogs about photographic freedom and other things / art by Anu Tuominen / ‘Someday All the Adults Will Die‘: Punk Graphics 1971 – 1984, an exhibition at the Hayward Gallery / illustration by Kate Fenley / Stupefaction, a music blog / the vinyl vs CDs vs mp3s vs cassettes debate rumbles on.

Speaking of Maps....
Have a lovely weekend all!
