If you love boats, boating and stunning scenery, like all NACovians, well the great majority at least, you must spend 25 minutes experiencing this beautiful 4k You Tube video titled “Travel Guide to Coastal Maine.” Visiting Bar Harbour, Camden, Portland and Kennebunkport in the US. I found the experience spellbinding. A mixture of marine and land scenery of incredible beauty. Still thinking of the exercise experience the next morning. Try it, you will not be disappointed.

In the past week lots of small purple flowers have been popping up in lawns all over the Cove.

These flowers are commonly called Prairie Nymphs - scientific name Herbertia lahue. They flower around about now, and this year they seem to be quite prolific.

They are small, only a few centimetres wide and a few centimetres high, with three prominent outer petals, and three tiny inner petals, with complex patterning in the centre.

They are a member of the iris family from Chile and Argentina, and are called "Prairie Nymph" in the southern US states.

Exciting news. If you haven't tried my suggestion for enhancing your home-based exercise utilising youtube videos titled “Virtual Walking” or “Virtual Cycling”, see "Yesterday I Cycled Along the Beach of Palm Cove inTropical North Queensland,Today I Am Walking Through Monte Carlo and Tomorrow the Cotswolds In The UK.”

We can now enhance this experience greatly. By chance I happened on “Travel Guide to……..”. Whilst mostly of shorter duration, around 10 to 20 minutes, the content is exciting and compelling viewing.

Each video in high definition takes you to the most popular sights in the location you have chosen...

The weather has been kinder this year with more rainfall and more produce is on the way in the garden.

While there are more greens our fruit trees suffered in the storms so there will be little fruit from the mango and avacado, citrus however is well protected and more limes, lemons and mandarins are on the way.

Remember picking herbs is free

and picking from the crops and fruit is accessible however we are asking community members for a donation to cover the costs of composting, and garden maintenance.

Pickers will...
