....and a bee at Queen's Park Gardens, Toowoomba.
The Carnival of Flowers is on for 10 days and we went on Sunday.

Toowoomba is 125km (75miles) west of Brisbane (1.5 hour drive) on the edge of the Great Dividing Range and is 700 metres above sea level. Because of this elevation it has a cooler & dryer climate than Brisbane.

The colors are so close! Nicely done, Rob. Way behind in puzzles-have company for 5 days, and it cramps my jigidi time. :(

Thanks els2 - this is a native Aboriginal name too - or a derivation of one! There were a couple of sketchy stories of the origin, but the most likely one is:
A third version and a widely accepted theory of the use of Toowoomba's name comes from Mrs Alford, wife of James Alford, one of the first businessmen in both Drayton and Toowoomba. It is believed that Mrs Alford asked the local Indigenous people what they called the area. They replied 'Woomba, Woomba'' meaning 'the springs and the water underneath.' The Alford's realised that two woombas would not be a suitable name for their house and store but by using TOO which is also a type of plural it would become Toowoomba.

Thanks els2!!

Beautiful. The one on the right looks like foxglove.

I like the Indian name in MI of Tecumseh, a city in SE MI. Els, I worked on Mackinac Is. and it is pronounced like Mackinaw City. Both have the "gnaw" sound on the end.

Love the name, Toowoomba. We have Indian names in Michigan, USA, too. Mackinaw Island (pronounced Mack in ack) means Turtle, I'm told.

Robyn, I think the lovely flower on the right is a Foxglove (Digitalis). Beautiful set of flowers :-))

lyndee
