Printed banksia pods
I have just printed the banksia pod of which i did the drawing and am feeling like a Happy Little Vegemite at the moment. Now the term Happy Little Vegemite is one of those Australian things that every Aussie worth his salt knows- when I went looking for a definition I stumbled upon an ANU ( Australian National University- where I once studied Arts/Law) site with lots of Australianisms- these are things that have crept into our language and are peculiarly Australian. I found lairy- a favourite word of mine, and then there is fair dinkum of course- the real thing- thought the have derived from latin somehow.
