Firstly we had a look at the Melbourne Water display. We pushed buttons to hear all sorts of frog calls and we learned that only the male frogs call when they feel safe.
On the other side they had a pond water display with all sorts of bugs for us to look at with magnifying glasses. They had a wonderful little book called: Australian Guide to Pond Life by Gould League I am really keen to see if our local library has a copy for us to look through.
Next we went indoors to find Daddy and all the wonderful animals Mark and him had brought along for the children to look at and touch.
|This in Bonnie and she is a Murray Darling Carpet Python|
|This is Ned the Shingle Backed Lizard.|
|This is Colin the Ring Tailed Possum|
After a look and a touch we moved along to the Bunnings Alfalfa Sprouts head making table.
I am planning a photo essay on the seeds growing and how we made the head. A very easy at home project.
We had a look at a few other displays and finished off with being blessed with three native bush plants courtesy of the City Council. I am planning to demolish the weed jungle in the garden bed out by my front door and enjoy these three plants: Fragrant Saltbush (Rhagodia Parabolica), Blue Flax-Lily (Dianella Revoluta) and Austral Indigo (Indigofera Australis).
This was the first expo I have attended with Sir N. Have you been to any local expo's lately ? Do you have any suggestions of outings we could do together ?
