NEWCASTLE UNIVERSITY CAMPUS

Here is the entrance to the main library at the University of Newcastle. The whole campus is pleasantly set among tall trees and greenery where quiet and peaceful outdoor spaces can be found as well as somewhere to have that last cigarette.

Russian translation. Thanks to P and C.
Вход в центральную библиотеку университета в Ньюкасле. В университетском городоке, привольно раскинувшемся среди могучих деревьев и вечнозелёных кустарников, легко найти уютную поляну для отдыха или уголок, чтобы выкурить сигарету в перерыве между занятиями.


Native grasses go very well in any garden

The university setting and the grasses are interesting shots. I like the grass as I am something of a fanatic about grasses. Our prairies once had grass taller than a man on horseback and herds of bison could be there, beside you, almost unseen. It was called Big Blue Stem and Little Blue Stem.

Nice post today.

Today, I published a nest photograph and some details about its construction; and a link to some dead birds with an explanation. Oh; and thanks for coming to my blog and leaving comments. I do appreciate it.

Two beautifully captured shots especially the second one is wonderful. I like the lush green environment in the campus in the first shot, which is quite stale here in the campuses of Calcutta, with very little greenery.

It's so surprising to see the Russian version! Translation is very good, by the way.

As for the photo itself, I liked it. Looks like a nice quiet place.

'Ol man Lincoln'- it's good to have a passion about grass! The prairies must have been even more magnificent.Have they been over- grazed?
Yes, it's a jungle out there! thanks one and all And good to hear from you, Irene. Not bad is it?
