Holidays in Oz

Merry Christmas Efurrybuddy!!!!

This Christmas we, the "Down Under " kitties, would like to invite you to our warm and sunny country for Christmas.

Don't know who we are? Well, here are us....

We come from all different parts of the continent and we will show you our parts of the world

I, Momo, am from Sydney, New South Wales and so is my cousin Charlotte

While you know all about the icons of my beautiful city - the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, the harbour foreshores, Bondi Beach etc, I would like to show you a different side of this region - the flowers! These flowers are wild flowers in this region of the east coast of Australia......


This beautiful flower is our state flower


This is pretty but many beans are allergic to it, including my SS


This is just absolutely everywhere


This comes in a variety of colours


This is one of SS's favourites

If you like to see more of the flora and fauna of my country, please go here.
It is a website sponsored by the local national parks.


Have a wonderful Christmas! A BIG, BIG THANKYOU to the Zoolatry mom, Ann, for making the beautiful graphics for us.
Please drop by to visit the other Oz kitties:

Fui & Suey

Bangles & Bombay

Pablo

Vampy Vic & Mushka

Pye, Trixie, Tigger

Oh, thank you so much for inviting us for Christmas. It is raining at home and NO fun.

The flowers are lovely. Your state flower is particulary pretty and perfect for Christmas.

The beans went out to eat so we raided the fridge and brought the fillet stuffed with crabmeat and topped with crawfish sauce to share with everyone.

The Cat Realm said...

How great! We didn't even know some of those OZ cats being OZ cats.... and some of them we didn't even know.
We will have to come back and visit everybody!
Mrs. OZ is quiet excited - she thinks all those cats are HER cats - as they call themselves "OZ kitties". I haven't explained it to her yet - I don't want to shatter her joy on X-mas....
Happy Holidays to you!

Happy Christmas to you Momo, and to SS and her family! That's a great post about some stunning and unusual flowers - we sometimes take stuff in our backyard for granted, so it was nice to be reminded about some unique Aussie flora.

Thanks so much for coming up with the idea of Holidays in Oz - it was nice to find out about some other Aussie kitties.

Purrs to you and your family,

Gypsy & Tasha

Diamond said...

So much information to take in. I haven't seen all these flowers as we are in Adelaide. We have a nice grevillea in flower in our garden most of the year with lots of pretty birdies. I am not allowed to say yum yum or crunch crunch, as we are nature lovers and I have to stay away from them.

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

MEOWY KITTYMAS to you dearest Momo!
Can I take home a bouquet of the smoke bush flowers for mommy...she loves snowflakes and they look like some. Actually we have lots of real snow here right now...way toooooo much...want some?
Love Miss Peach
