  1. Kritika – Impressive about me is my eagerness to try everything. Self Motivation is a fixed gear of my creativity vehicle provoking me to dance to the tune of optimism. Yoga and books are the two transducers of this victim which have helped to be straightforward and open minded. Improvement is the second gear which is under construction and will always be undergoing changes simultaneously achieving different goals. There are other supporting gears with less of speed more of energy. This is KRITIKA 🙂

    They are wonderful

  2. megpie71 – Australian, female, fat, born in 1971. Been hanging around the internet (first Usenet, now blogs) since about 1997. Far too cynical for my own good.

    Pedro: don’t worry, they’re all tulips. The main thing about Floriade is tulips. Lots and lots and lots of tulips. Very few natives are actually in bloom in Canbrrra at the time Floriade is running (it’s the tail end of wildflower season over here in Western Australia, though).

  3. Welcome to Australia John. It’s great to have you down under.

    Now that you’re here I can take this opportunity to say “damn you Scalzi”!
    I have things to do but have just started reading the Collapsing Empire. It’s too good and now I’ll get nothing done until I’ve finished it.
    Damn you, and thank you.

  4. Thanks for the reminder that it’s spring there. My neighbor gave me some parrot tulips that I’ll get to see in about 6 months or so here.

  5. The warm colors really pop — is that something you’re tweaking with the images or is it a super-power of your cell phone or camera?

  6. All tulips, all the time. Pity you might not have gotten to see some of the natives; some of them are remarkable, and it’s not just kangaroo paws.

  7. Chris Blackwood – Hello and welcome to my blog! Blacky's Burrow is my personal blog about me and my best friend Johnny. These are the atypical day to day antics of a crazy cat person and a Rose-Point Siamese cat that's just a little bit crazier.

    Those are beautiful shots!

  8. Next time you’re in Canberra (as if it’s just a quick weekend trip!) check out the Australian National Botanic Gardens, which exclusively showcase Australian plants.

    And thanks for two great talks at Conflux.
