This week, a couple of photos from 2003 photo folders. The photo above is from the Botanic Gardens in Adelaide. I love the contrast between the dark area and the extra sunny area. When you visit most botanic gardens you will find a spot like this.
This shot was taken from our townhouse which was on Tapleys Hill Road – a major road back in Adelaide. The Other Half was playing around with shutter speeds and time lapse from the upstairs bedroom window, which resulted in this photo of a road train.

Weekly Wrap Up –
Here at Snoskredland, we’ve had a nasty cold this week. We’ve been trying to keep warm, I’ve made a couple of batches of Chicken and Sweet Corn Soup which is my go-to chicken soup, and there was some more cleaning and tidying. Whenever I get a cold, I have this overwhelming urge to clean things.
Posts Snoskred Enjoyed –
Royally Played: Trooping The Colour 2015 – Did you see Prince George at Trooping the Colour? If not, you MUST, he was gorgeous! But wait, there’s more! Royally Played: Polo in the Park With George – And even more! And Still More!
I’m not into the concept of having kids of my own but Prince George could convince me otherwise. He is just so goshdarn cute!
Who Lives Where? Migrants Settling in Australian Cities – This post is completely fascinating. This is a must read for Aussies, and people thinking of becoming Aussies.
Queen Victoria’s Crown Ruby Brooch – My favourite colour on the Queen is pink, followed by aqua/teal. The photo of the Queen in this post is gorgeous! And some more pics here – Royal Ascot, Day 1 and Audience at Windsor Castle
The Best And Worst Airlines, Airports And Flights, Summer 2015 Update – An interesting look at US airports and airlines
Relentlessly Christian person objects to relentlessly gay front yard – I suspect this anonymous letter writer has begun a new trend as a surprise to themselves. Relentlessly gay yards will be popping up as a surprise all over the place. If you would like to donate to Julie Baker to assist her in creating a Relentlessly Gay abode and help to give a large, rainbow covered, middle finger to this anon letter writer, you can do so via this Go Fund Me – Relentlessly Gay.
Arnold Schwarzenegger freaks out Hollywood tourists – this was by far one of the funniest videos I watched this week on the interwebs. Celebrities should do this more often. Classic!

We took a closer look at my second collectibles cabinet in Cabinetry Take Two, and I told you about an often used phrase in our household – There Was An Incident.. – Then, we put some mandarin in soda water for Sodastream Saturday #2.
Past Snoskred –
My Favourite Space – A look back at my office room from August 2006 – this was my seventh ever post on the blog.

I do love Botanic Gardens. Beautiful, peaceful places. I don’t think I have ever been to Adelaide’s though. A mistake.
I am so sorry you have been battling a cold. Miserable things. And in awe that you are able to work through them. I just want to hunker down and do nothing.
Yeah today I’ve hit my work through limit, I was supposed to do the meal plan and grocery shopping and I just felt too blah to do it.. Takeaway for dinner tonight! :)
I love that first photo so much! It’s glowing with light. Now that I’m on summer break, I’ll have time to check out more of your links; they look interesting!
I’m enjoying collecting up the links, I like to share the things I enjoyed. :)
I like those Botanic Garden steps, I’ve sat there and eaten lunch many times, watching the bees on the lavender. So Many Bees!
The Adelaide Botanic Garden has so many awesome places.. but when we visited recently one of my favourite spots had been redone and was not quite as awesome. I think it was the hothouse, where there used to be that huge pool of water filled with tropical fish. :)
