Having fun with "F" words
In Brisbane for the foreseeable future? No, those are not the two "F" words I was thinking of. Interested in getting acquainted with your surroundings and seeing what this great place has to offer? Any guesses now about the two F words?

They stand for Fauna and Flora and I am writing to recommend to you two great books which are produced by the Queensland Museum and make an excellent reference book, birthday present and "must have" of any household.

I came across them wandering through the Brisbane Museum in South Bank but the books are available more widely in good bookshops.

They are such a great reference for all the wonderful wildlife. I have come across a fair amount of the wildlife in my back garden alone but it is always good to know something a little more detailed about these creatures.

I walk along the riverside, the creeks and the forests marvelling at the trees, their colours, fruits and pods and go home and look them up. I have learnt so much about them.

It is also part of being aware of the importance of maintaining the fauna and the flora and making sure that in your daily life you do not do things that actively damage it or cause problems in that delicate balance that nature has structured. In fact make sure that you actively encourage their protection and survival.

At $32.95 they represent excellent value. Put these books on your "must have" lists for this year.
