What Susie Saw – nature’s perfect frame

This view has kept grabbing my attention over the years.  It’s from Helen Street behind what was once the workplace of so many of us here in town, the old Beaudesert Times offices and printing press.  I love the way the trees bordering Spring Creek frame the view across to […]

What Susie Saw – Curious piglet

This curious little piglet wriggled up above the feeding scrum to take a look around, bright as a button and not even one day old. There were 12 of them, born the night before Mother’s Day at Tommerup’s Dairy Farm, just in time for us visitors to take a look.

What Susie Saw – Foggy tree

This foggy sky one recent Friday morning grabbed my attention, and for once I had my actual camera on me. You might have noticed I like taking photos of the sky most mornings, even just on my mobile phone, but there is something special about slowing down to photograph something […]

What Susie Saw – bees and blooms

I stopped to admire the bees on the blooms on Duckett Street behind the shops, recently. I have it on good authority that these are coral vine blossoms, and they are edible.  I didn’t have a taste test, but they were a feast for the eyes and that was enough for […]

What Susie Saw – Helen Street drains

Here’s a glorious sky over the culvert collection on Helen Street the other morning.  It sounds like a giant frog hotel on muggy mornings.  We walk past it every day, and sometimes I remember those culverts are destined for greater things, like fixing the town’s drainage.  No offence to the frogs.
