Springtime in Canberra!

Canberra (pronounced Can-bra) is the capital city of Australia. Much like DC, it's a planned city - great museums, a botanic garden of native plants, and miles of good walking. I walked and walked and walked.

It's springtime here. The banksia and spring flowers are in full bloom. The barks of the gum trees, also know as eucalypts, are stunning. The local birds, including lorikeets and black swans, are always a very wonderful surprise.

I still need to remember to look both ways, at least twice, when I cross the streets.
