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 so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to The Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I'm taking you back to Mitcham where I discovered "Nellie's Garden", located beside the railway tracks.
A garden! I saw little paths so of course I followed one...
so I headed in the direction of the blue-with-clouds painted building you see here.
it is covered on all sides with murals
I liked this one with the old steam engine in green and the more modern diesel in red.
A little further into the garden I discovered a large rock with this plaque telling us more about the garden.
In Memory of Nellie Iris Ellis (1920-1983)
who with her husband Bob,
station master at Mitcham,
developed this garden during the 1960s.

Here are a few more images of the garden.
another path in another direction
somewhere to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet in the garden.
clivia thriving in a shady spot under trees.
a large patch of feathery golden something-or-other (*~*)
one more path with others leading off left and right.
I like these gorgeously striped leaves on the tall orange lilies. Thankfully NOT oriental lilies, which I am allergic to.
more of the same leaves. I'm thinking maybe I should plant some of these in my garden. They're large and colourful......
Next week, maybe more of Nellie's Garden, maybe something different.
