Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment here so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to TheElephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in.
And Jackie K too, at WorkingThrough It sometimes joins us.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I have some photos I took at the corner of Grenfell Street and Pulteney Street here in Adelaide.
bright orange flowers,
that I don't know the name of. Kniphofia?
Then we have a concrete playground-picnic area which is supposed to represent a typical Aussie backyard.
and things you might find lying around in it.
a child's lost thong, (flip-flop for all you Northern hemisphere people),
and this. ?? any ideas? Discarded Christmas ornament?
pets are represented...
with a bone for the family dog...
and fish for the cat.
the tail of the fish.
We also have>>>
the garden tap,
attached to the tangled hose,
and the nozzle on the other end.
these spiky bits represent the blades of grass
that all these things are hiding or lost in.
They are built on a large scale, you'll get some idea of the size when I tell you the garden tap towers over me by a fair bit. Admittedly I'm only five feet tall, but still, these things are big.
On the opposite corner of the intersection...
is a young Moreton Bay Fig Tree, planted as replacement for the ancient tree removed by City Council several months ago.
They said it was diseased, the people didn't believe them and protested quite a bit, the tree was removed anyway, then one day, this was planted in its place. Yay!!
