I know, another Jacaranda but look at the lavender ‘snow fall’ beneath the trees. This is the best part of the season. Taken at the Doctor’s open garden day.
More vistas from the same garden.
This rose looks magnificent when you open the picture in a new tab. The pink flower is on an extremely prickly stem and then we have a major garden feature.
Something different, I love statues especially those of the unclothed female form. Not in a pervy way but as someone who admires beauty in all its forms. I think they may represent the three fates of Greek mythology. The bottlebrush flower is probably one of the brightest I’ve seen all year, and of course it makes a great contrast with the lily.
Taken when we stopped for road works on the highway north of Cowra in New South Wales. The wheat fields located on both sides of the road seem to go on forever.
This is the ‘art work’ outside of Wellington that I spoke about in last weeks blog. To give you an idea of its size, in the main picture the rock structure in the background is about 3 metres high.
I love the top picture, it’s like looking into a portal. The bottom pictures are all in an Aboriginal style. A lot of work has gone into this structure. Each picture is from a plinth situated in a circle around the structure.
As you make your way into the town of Molonglo, NSW you will see a junkyard on your left. Here are a few denizens of the yard. Somebody is artistic and has a lot of time on their hands. The motorbike is twice the size of a Harley, and the T-Rex is not quite life-size.
You can get an idea about the size of the frog by the earth moving buckets behind him. I thought the water-lily pad added a nice touch.
This dragonfly was huge, the wee frog didn’t stand a chance. I thought the piano man added a certain touch to the place. Unfortunately the owner couldn’t be found so I have no idea who created these pieces.
That’s your lot for this week, it’s colourful, quirky and bound to get you coming back for more. Take a moment to open these pictures in a new tab to get a better view of them, it’s worth it. Until next time take care.
