Free.


It seems that no matter where I roam there is a free barbecue just waiting on the footpath for the taking.   Just why this occurs is beyond me, but barbecues and exercise bikes must be the most discarded items on the planet.  OK, in Australia then.

Fencing as I remember.


Some time ago I described the kind of fencing that was in vogue when I was a kid.   This is it, although often the posts and rails were painted white before the chain wire was stapled on.

This is a really nice detail to create a period-correct look for the beach house garden.

Full marks!

Colours of suburbia, with magpie.


Sometimes, my clever post title leaves absolutely nothing more to say.

This is one of those times.

What season is it again?


A few years ago, when I was desperate for a photo for the day, I'd run outside and check the state of the Frangipani.   The ever changing nature of these trees always gives something to talk about, although I've never figured the seasons in which they flower, grow leaves and die off.  They do it all in sync with one another, but not strictly to our calendar.

Here's the very tip of a bare tree, with new life just bursting to get out, and winter is barely on us.

It was inevitable.


Well one didn't have to be Nostradamus to predict the demise of the house on this site, actually a chat with the owners gave a fair clue as to its future.   It's sad from a rich urban tapestry perspective that it had to go of course, but they are nervously waiting on commencement of their new modern and comfortable house!

Here's what it looked like last week.

Vacation Blues.


Did the colour of the car really match the surfboard and that of the caravan in days gone by?

I'm not sure, but it makes for a happy holiday methinks.

Says the skateboard kid.


I suspect he's right, but I don't care enough to worry about it.

Hang on... not all hippies are dead, just very old.
