Ladies and gentlemen, please be upstanding

Australians all let us rejoice,
For we are young and free!
With manta rays, box jellyfish,
Our home is girt by sea!
Did I forget to mention crocs?
We've also got them there!
And sharks, and also bluebottles -
Advance Australia Fair!
And snakes that like to swim and bite -
Advance Australia Fair!

Beneath our radiant Southern Cross,
Our magpies swoop and snap!
Our platypi have poison feet,
Our spur-winged plovers flap.
We've spiders, pythons - bloggers too!
On land, in sea, and air!
Our dingoes eat our kids for tea -
Advance Australia Fair!
In joyful strains then let us sing -
Advance Australia Fair!

This offends me. Don't you know how unAustralian it is to be posting things at 07.51 on a public holiday? For shame!

What about Topiary? Does the ancient art flourish on the fair Australian shore?

Welcome to Australia

No, but we do have a giant pineapple, which is made of something that requires no trimming.

Our peoples are the low maintenance type.

The Land of Topiary welcomes all Australian Pineapples, trimmed or not, as honorary denizens of the Topiary family.

A magnanimous Topiary family!

(Even if somewhat, err, green and cloven.)
