Wandering around backstreet Ultimo and wondering what this type of tree is. Not a eucalypt, I think? Or is it? #Sydney
I'm sitting here on the gutter in a random street ... So far two people have asked if I am ok ... Giggles

No bunya pine cones on today's walk but did find an old cicada shell clinging on to the side of one of the big old palm trees.
Photo of the same cicada shell resting on the fingers of my open hand in sunlight. Makes the translucent nature of the shell more obvious as well as the little details, like the tiny still intact antennae shapes.
As promised yesterday, a day late ... Pout
The first primary school report 1977 ... And I still have to think left from right ... Giggles
So have I changed? ... Hugz

Could hear the lorikeets in the upper branches when i stopped to take some pics of the native fig tree at ground level. Was a lovely surprise to find one this close - an arm's length maybe - happily snacking away.
Photo of same lorikeet, shifted position with lighter branch giving way more under its weight. Still side on but more of the yellow belly visible, with tinges of red. Also the lighter green band of feathers around the neck.
Photo of the same lorikeet, partially obscured by twigs and branches. More of its green dotted yellow tail feathers visible from this angle.
My Aunty just rang me, worried a painful rash on her arm was shingles. She wanted me to consult google it, so i did and read out the symptoms on a couple of health info sites.
Then i thought to ask her - have you ever had chickenpox?
Nope! So can't be shingles.
If it's that level of painful, suggested she get it seen to though. So she's going to try her local GP Access After Hours number.
And back at this age ... On holidays with the sperm donor. ... I wonder why he would yell at me for being a sissy ... Giggles ... He also love to use "don't get hysterical" at me
