  1. I had no idea what a banksia pod was, so had to look it up (I am now more knowledgeable than I was an hour ago and it's not even 9am!). What interesting looking flowers and pods they produce.

  2. I'm with Debbie - I had no idea either! Very interesting looking pod - would have really struggled to work out what the first photo was if you hadn't said!

    1. I think the parrots got to that first one, it looks a bit chewed on and the seed is gone.

    1. Hahaha, I wonder if growls or hoots or what sound it would make if it were an animal? =D

    2. spouting fire would be good (does look like it belongs to the dragon family - although being made of wood = not so good!)

    3. Well, I guess you can't win them all. A wood dragon does sound hazardous.

    1. Wonderful. I was right guessing plant but thought they were some sort of gall. I have a wood turning friend who would love these. #MySundayPhoto

    2. Okay, now it's my turn to Google, I've never heard of a gall before....ohh I see, they're strange looking growth abnormalities. Wikipedia was very helpful with an explanation.
