Luca and the Christmas Bush

christmas-bush-40852222

This is the amazing Christmas Bush that flowers in Sydney every Christmas. The shrub can grow to quite a tall tree and the red blooms are just stunning. This tree is also rumoured to be a natural fly deterrent. Like with most of our Christmas and summer blooms you need to catch them quick as unfortunately they don’t last for long.

 

Como Bridge

boy2-1

Como Baths. This was taken the same day the man fell/ slipped or jumped from the Como train Bridge (not pictured) and badly hurt his face, head, and abdomen. I had left when the incident occurred but i have seen an image of the man, still in the water, awaiting for paramedics to remove him safely. He has people in the water holding him up, a rather disturbing sight….non the less, people will still climb and jump from that bridge. Some have become paraplegic, and being in the Georges there could be anything floating down stream, anyway lets hope we don’t see any fatalities here.
