Rue des Fleurs.. or, under the Jacaranda tree.....
Laneway Art project in the city, it occurred to me as I was taking photos of all the fantastic new murals around Perth that I had a laneway of my own that could do with a little TLC. Although painted garden green the view from the back bedrooms in my house has always been tres uninspiring. No longer! A few months ago I commissioned my very talented niece Jessica to paint a floral mural along the 36ft corrugated fence, quite a challenge n'est pas? Now, under the overhang of purple Jacaranda blossom there is a profusion of sunflowers, roses, daises, poppies and so much more, and even though Sydney can't visit my garden anymore, I have her here as a permanent reminder of how very sweet she was, lovely touch Jess merci beaucoup :) The final daubs went on this weekend and I feel very privileged to be the first of many such projects for Jess..look out for that signature below, it's going to be renowned one day. Hope you've had a good weekend and are ready to face the week, happy Monday, take care....p.s. if anyone has advice on how I can keep my new mural safe from the harsh Aussie sun, I'd appreciate hearing it.....Click here to view all participants of Monday Mural
