I've never lived in Australia. I've visited only twice. My husband's mother came from Perth and all her family is still there, including her twin brother. Thus, most of my husband's family is there, aside from his 2 sisters. Most of my visiting time has been in Western Australia, but I've been to a few other lovely spots too! We've also had several visits from family there to places we've lived in the U.S. I've loved every minute of it.
But talking about it and showing you are two different things. I have lots of ways to explain this, but here are 3 examples I now put forth for "i heart macro" on ...
"Why I should be an Honorary Australian"
I love these GinGin candies and the "Ginger Chews" too!
|#17: Reason #2|
Both of these products are made by
"The Ginger Company."
You can find more information online.
I've not tried ordering--I have my "secret sources,"
but these are sweet, hot, and yummy!
Alas, I would add "Violet Crumbles"
but have no photo of my own to share.
They were my mother-in-law's favorite,
and I grew to like them too!
A very sweet, crunchy bar, covered in chocolate!
3rd and last reason ...
(for today anyway)...
If this doesn't scream "Australian," I don't know what does.
(Okay, I admit I have a difficult time eating it,
but there's always a jar in the house.
Does that count?)
And in taking a look, I see
Happy Australia Day, Jan. 26, 2012.
to all our Australian photographers!
(This entry has been "tongue-in-cheek," but seriously,
thank you for sharing your lovely country with all of us
through your photographs!)
Please see more "i heart macro" entries
Thanks for visiting! (I'll give you better reasons another time!) :-)
P.S. Happy 90th B-day to Uncle Charlie in Perth Feb. 4!
