It was made with a mobile phone camera, so, unfortunately, I can't enlarge it. I can give a hint, it's a megalythic culture. There are hundreds of those objects in the area near Sochi. Archeologists still do not have a clue what those were built for. I read that, some strange, allegedly, "extraterrestrial" lighting effects are sometimes observed in the area. Hm. :)

Thanks Kell and George :-)

The daffs have a slight scent that you don't really notice until you cut them and bring them inside ... not really a very pleasant scent in my opinion but not so strong that I'd throw them out ;-) Never tried eating them though - lol. They were on a list I saw over toxic plants - listed as irritants - so I'm not sure they'd make good eatin'. Why can't you grow them Kell - is it too hot down there for them?

I'll try and check in once in a while with photos ;-) I'm finding it very hard to find computertime now - springtime in the garden might have something to do with it. lol The list of things to do seems endless ... I'm sure that sounds familiar to all of you ;-)

Here's another one - this one was taken on May 16th just before 9 pm :-)

Kell I am surprised that you can not grow at least one cultivar of daffs. Our zones are not too far off and I have tons. They are heirloom southern bulbs that have stood the test of time. There are ones that do not require the cold. Check around it see if there is some in Australia you could try. I see you pushing your zone with other plants. If you can get some try choosing a cooler shaded southern exposure(I guess that's right) northern for me. You can plant them deep and they will still have some blooms. Just a suggestion.

Kell, I have some daffs that I will give you. Mine just do not get enough sun to bloom every year. They bloom about every 3 years. Stop by anytime and pluck them from the ground. ;o)

rann, there are many types of domestic ducks that are very hardy. They are very happy in very cold and wet weather and do just as well, in very hot dry weather. You may want to check and see what is best for your area.

Pep, I am always amazed at the number of people that have ducks (without a pond) and dogs in the same yard. I have been told that domestic ducks that can out think a dog and/or fly away is the type chosen. After a while, the dogs give up, the ducks are just too much trouble. I have also been told that the ducks will then act high and mighty and tease the dogs. "Nana nana na na, I'm gettin closer and you can't get me" The biggest threat is foxes, wolves, etc. So, I cannot keep them as pets either...unless they sleep in the house.
