Het is net een groot uitgevallen pijpenrager Berend is ie van jou anders van Kleur. Door jou weten we nu hoe de struik eruit ziet.

Groetjes van Greetje.

Dank je Paul, ook voor de link en ook Greetje bedankt voor het compliment. Je zag ze inderdaad in meerdere kleuren en in verschillende vormen. De blaadjes heb ik expres meegenomen om zo thuis nog te weten hoe het eruit zag (we deden zo ontzettend veel indrukken op). In King's Park in Perth stonden veel verschillende soorten Banksia's in bloei. Deze soort vond ik het waard om te uploaden omdat ze zo groot zijn. Ik zal eens in mijn archief kijken naar de andere foto's. Ook zal ik het houten overblijfsel van de bloem na bloei eens op de plaat vastleggen. Groeten Berend

Well Done Berend. I think this one is slightly different.They are so very nice and so many different ones in my area.They are bit like the Mallee.I think there is over 400 different Mallee's trees and like the Banksia they all flower at different times of the years, so the bees are kept busy and alive.Quite amasing Berend,Kind Greetings to you,David

Thanks David, I saw a lot of different Banksia's in Oz, especially in Kings Park in Perth. I took some lovely pictures of Banksia flowers. I will upload them one day. Greetings Berend

Hi bdeh, Thank you for the kind words.You have some nice cameras,mine is only a mickey mouse of cameras. I only have a digital camera but it serves the purpose.I will send you a sketch of above picture, but as you know pencil sketches do not photograph too well, but it will give you an idea.I noticed that you have many pictures on the web, I have had much enjoyment from them as I have been to most of the sites.You must go to africa and take some shots of Mount Kilamanjaro.I have a beautiful photo of said mountain, but not with me.Have a good day Dorothy

Hello Dorothy, I'm very pleased that you like my pictures so much. I'm curious about your sketches of my picture.

Going to Africa is one of our wishes, especially going to Kenya and Tanzania.

Greetings Berend
