Hi ExplorOz Reader,
ExplorOzers have been busy this week, with some engaging new pieces such as Encounters with a Military Dragon (includes video), and A redneck, Bogan, Zionist, Racist being posted in the Blogs section. Well done Life Member - Mick O and Member - The Landy. View More BlogsQuite a few tempting new recipes have also been added such as Big Bad Boy's Ribs - another superbly presented contribution by Member - Brian P (SA). View all Recipes
A large number of interesting new POI entries have also been contributed to Places by Member - John Baas (WA). Complete with useful information and photos, you'll find these new listings in the Recently Added tab. Thank you for sharing your discoveries so that others might find them too.
Plus a significant number of new wildflower photos have been added to the Wildflower section in recent weeks, with a massive contribution by Life Member - Stephen L (Clare), and Life Member - John & Val Wiseman, Member - John Baas (WA) and other individuals too many to mention. Remember - you can simply add a photo to an existing listing or create a new listing if you have a photo and common name of a plant not listed (use Unnamed if you don't know!). You can leave it to the administrators to do the technical bits!

| ||Tip of the Week - with the current Photo Comp running, here's a little tip that you might just find handy...|
You can view just the photos from all blogs from within a particular tag en masse on a page. Every blog has at least one TAG (this is selected by the author to categorise the subject matter of their blog).
All the entries to the Photo Comp are tagged Photo Comp 2015. So first, find blogs by this tag as shown. Then switch the Display Option - to "Photo View". Easy!
||Bloomin' News - this week our resident Wildflower expert Val Wiseman has prepared two fabulous guides in the Wildflowers section
to help people like you & I become better skilled at identifying
and recognising the various wildflowers we see as we travel. This is a must-read blog! This then leads onto the next guide in the series - How Plants are Named. |
Don't forget to leave comments, questions, or photos of any of the flowering plants you see in your own travels. Even if you can't fill in all the technical details - you can start a new listing with just a name and the colour of the flower - admin will do the rest! Let's collaborate and build a truly unique Australian wildflower database.
