What the Bishop saw.....!


This neatly trimmed central garden in the Bishops See looks down towards Bishop's House which is now home to Lamont's. It sits right in the heart of the main business area on St. George's Terrace and is a favourite spot for office workers from the surrounding highrise office blocks to sit and have their lunch in very genial surroundings. I read a review of St. George's Terrace a while back, written by someone who said 'St. George's Terrace is like a boring wind tunnel made up of skyscapers'. Really mate! Open the peepers and you'll find treasures galore on the terrace, even, if you're lucky, 'naked nubile nymphs', although I could almost imagine the little Willie Wagtail sitting on the wall in the last shot looking into the garden and tut tutting in disapproval haha! Have a happy Friday, hopefully the world won't come to an end and I'll catch you tomorrow! Take care and stay safe..

  1. Ha ha, that wagtail's expression so reminds me of a nun who tried to teach me stuff many years ago. Love it!

  4. So much nudity for the bishop... Just a man, I suppose.

  6. The poor Bishop, surrounded by all that nudity, and nothing to do about it.

    Good shots, Grace! Quite a place!

  12. I'll take my lunch there any day, such a lovely spot! The Willie Wagtail is a sweet-pretty-creature indeed, though I've never seen a bird look so stern, haha - great capture!

  15. A wonderful shady haven ... that's the beauty of photography it takes us of the main streets and gets us mozzying around in those little back laneways and alleys. This is a gorgeous find and how lovely to capture Mr Willy Wagtail sunning himself on the wall.

  16. Definitely not boring at all. Who ever wrote that article is seriously misguided and is probably a kangaroo short in the top paddock.

  17. There are always those who only see the woods but don't appreciate the trees - in this case the beautiful feature between the tall buildings! Love those figurines!

  20. Complaining about this? The critic didn't know what he was talking about. I think it is lovely.

  21. Reminds me some of the brilliantly laid our watercourses at the Alhambra in Spain. But, you know, nubile, naked nymphs aren't nearly as much fun when they're cast in bronze.

    Found out tonight that our first grandchild is expected in August so the proposed journey to Australia that month is off for sure.

  22. Beautiful gardens and nice reflections.

  23. A wonderful, inviting place where I would like to be right now, basking in the sunshine instead of being bundled up against the cold.

  24. I had no idea such a lovely garden was tucked away in that area. Need to go and have a look next time I go into the city.

    Greetings, Joop

  26. The bishop had a very fine view of those naked, nubile nymphs. Not that I noticed.

    ReplyDelete
  27. That bishop had some nice sculptures in his garden to look at. At least they were no little children, but some adults with all the proper shapes.

  28. This is a gorgeous place. I can't imagine how anyone could call it boring. I love all these photos.

  29. So beautiful and so immaculate...it makes me long for nice surroundings. I open my front door and it's trash as far as the eye can see.

    My neighbors are ignorant slobs....

  30. The perspective on top is the best. Lovely place!
