I was SO surprised to learn that the Kookaburra, common in my home state, was introduced to Tasmania. Never thought this bird could be an interloper in parts of Australia. It just seems to be rather an icon.
AUSTRALIA, Tasmania, Vale of Belvoir. Burl on trunk of Myrtle beech tree, temperate rainforest. A burl is actually a sort of tumor on the tree. Makes some of the most beautiful grain patterns used by carpenters woodturners.
a hot bath that contains a handful of epsom salts, 10 drops of lavender essential oil, and a half cup of baking soda draws out toxins, lowers stress-related hormones, and balances your ph levels. Pshhh I just want the tub and the view!
