    Canberra Arboretum and Bonsai Display

    February 6, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    It took two attempts to see the Bonsai exhibition. The arboretum is open until 8:30 pm so we chose to go there at the end of the day only to find that, while the gates were open, the exhibitions were all shut at 4:00.

    A wonderful display of bonsai trees at the arboretum that will probably look great in 20 years time and amazing in 50 years time.

    The original Arboretum burned down in the 2003 bushfire that went right into the suburbs. It destroyed nearly 500 homes, injured a few hundred people and killed a few as well. That's why they were so antsy with the recent big fire.

    Thanks for that, it was mentioned at the arboretum.

    I think a pair of Bonsai trees sitting either side of your Orchid hospital on your Bakers rack would look fab!

    Bun will have to make a start pretty soon if we’re going to see them looking good.

    Canberra Tag 80

    February 29, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Vorletzter Arbeitstag😍
    Am Morgen habe ich wieder mal viel aufgeräumt und geputzt. Als alle dann wieder zurück waren, haben wir dann mit den Mädels gespielt und dann gab es auch schon lunch. Gegen 15 Uhr haben wir uns auf dem Weg zu nem Spielplatz gemacht. Der war echt super schön, du hast einen Ausblick über ganz Canberra von dort aus gehabt☺️. Wir haben dort 3 Stunden verbracht und sind dann noch kurz auf den Lookout gefahren. Als wir wieder zu Hause waren, mussten wir die Kiddies erstmal baden, weil die so dreckig waren😅. Danach gab es Dinner und wir waren dann auch fertig mit dem Arbeitstag:). Danach haben wir uns fertif gemeacht und sind zu Lisa gefahren. Dort haben wir uns getroffen, bisschen gequatscht und sind dann los ins Mooseheads :). Bisschen abdancen💃
    Das war mal wieder mega schön, zu mal ich die Mädelstruppe echt vermissen werde 😢!

    In the morning I cleaned up a lot. When everybody was back, we played with the girls and then we had lunch. Around 3 o'clock we went to a playground. It was really nice, you have a view over the whole Canberra from there☺️. We spent 3 hours there and then went to the Lookout. When we were back home we had to give the kids a bath because they were so dirty😅. Afterwards there was dinner and we were done with the working day :). Afterwards we made ourselves ready and went to Lisa. There we met, talked a little bit and went to the Mooseheads :). A little bit of dacing💃
    That was once again nice, to times I will miss the girls troop really 😢!
