Hi Jackie. Here's the answer to your question about Dryandras, today on Jigsaws!
It's alive, jacalmi, the outside is a bit woody!
These 2 sites will give you a lot of information on Dryandras - they are native to Western Australia & are related to Banksias!

After doing today's jigsaw of the Agave, I remembered you'd wondered why the were sometimes called Swans Neck. I put some photos of them in my gallery one of them shows the whole plant & you'll understand!

I know this is the wrong time to go looking at photos when there's so much else to do at this time of the year - so don't worry if you don't get see them till sometime next year!!!

Yes, sure has been a busy time! My husband is away (since 27th Dec) at the moment so I've had a bit more time to spend here! I usually do the jigsaws & sudokus first them add a comment or 2 to the Easy page. I always plan to go back during the day but....
Anyway - 'see' you on site, maybe - the problem is the time differences!!!

Thanks for dropping into my gallery, Jackie!!

Hi jacalmi, thanks for the birthday wishes. It's good to see another Canadian on the site - I converse fairly frequently with Canuk Greg, who lives (we think) not too far from my brother and his Canadian wife and children in Ottawa.)

Thanks very much for dropping in with birthday wishes - greatly appreciated!

Thank you for caring enough to post your kind words. Holmes was a beloved friend--always the giver, always the underdog--which is why we wanted to shield him from any more suffering. Tough days now for us, but he's at peace.

for the lovely sentiments you left on my page. We were truly blessed by her presence in our lives and I agree that those sweet memories will sustain us in our grief.
Hugs to you, Jackie

Hi Jackie. Medium on the jigsaw page - The reflection in the water is our boat's motor. In the left hand corner is back of the boat with the motor up out of the water!
It is hard seeing things with a small monitor - wasn't that long ago that I had one, husband got me my own computer a couple of

Hello Jackie, and thank you very much for your kind thoughts on my birthday!! I did have a wonderful day, including a lovely chocolate mud cake, with blue icing of course!!

Thank you, Jacalmi! Am having a wonderful Mothers day and birthday. Celebrated with my family yesterday at a Cuban restaurant.

for the b'day greeting! It's always such a treat to get the 2-day Sudoku celebration

I thought I'd stop in and say hello and see if all is well with you and yours. Did you survive the recent storms that moved through all of Eastern Canada? I hope so. Take care and have a great day!

Thank you for the Birthday greeting.
I always enjoy hearing from Sudoku friends.

Hi Jackie, I am just now looking at yesterdays Sudoku. I have been told these are older wild horses. Exactly where they were brought from I do not know, out west would be my guess. There are several other ranches in this area that have the wild horses.

This is copy & paste message about the Sudoku Easy Jigsaw Problems:
They went wild after one of Gath's changes. If you go back in the beginning (15th May 2005) & check the photos in the archives you'll find that the only jigsaw is the torso in the black jumper with the white coffee cup, you'll

Thanks for the explanation about the jigsaw size. I have been wondering about the oversize pieces on some of the jigsaws. I'm afraid I wasn't around in 2005, so I'm not too sure about the reasoning of this. However, I'll keep doing the puzzles whenever they're the right size, which is most of the time.

Sorry I haven't been around to answer your question about the net casting spider, so here's your answer! They build a net & throw it over their prey, then wrap it as other spiders do1
Here's a you-tube about one:

Re today's Tough Sudoku Jigsaw:
The property is called ''the Magpie's Nest'' & they grow wine grapes & olives. Not sure if they sell from home or supply local businesses, possibly both! Some of the trees near the house are Olives.
Thanks for the question!

Thanks for the visit, jacalmi! It's a bit confusing having 2 Kates on the scene! We joined about the same time as Kate/Sydney, so she added Ku-ring-gai (a suburb of Sydney). She's younger than I am by 20 plus years, I guess! It was her birthday, I'm in February! Thanks for thinking of me! Have great ''not my birthday'' day too!!

It was a fun day jacalmi!
Decided I'd repeat the answer to Bev's question here as well as her page! Rip it up if it's too boring!!!!!
It's an ''Artist's Walk'' along the foreshores of Sydney Harbour from North Sydney to Lavender Bay! The Artists themselves

Jacalmi, Merry Christmas to you and all those you care for, and have a peaceful and prosperous 2014!
24/Dec/13 1:49 AM
Thanks for the Christmas greetings. I know it's a bit late, but hope you had a good Christmas. (My best friend's hubby died on Christmas Day so I was a bit scattered.) And since we left to go to the Rose Bowl right after... I will wish you a Happy New Year now!

Thanks very much for the birthday wishes - they're greatly appreciated!!

Jacalmi, thanks for your comments on my photos this last week. I have been traveling, without internet, so haven't been back on until today.
16/Jul/14 3:29 AM
Jackie, for the Birthday wishes. I had a wonderful day. It was made even better hearing from my Sudoku friends.
25/Jul/14 9:35 AM
It's been a while, so I thought I would stop in and say hello. I hope all is well in your corner of the world!
Heck, while I'm here ..... a push!
