Who's a pretty boy.....!


You may or may not know that our recently elected (?) PM has a penchant for wearing 'budgie smugglers' when he goes for a dip.. I took this shot on Saturday after the elections and couldn't help wondering..nah! let's not go there :)) It's one of my favourite murals in the city on the corner of Wellington and William St. I always look forward to seeing it when walking over the Horseshoe Bridge into the city, something sweet at Tartine Cafe is a delish bonus! It was created by the very talented WA artist Anya Brock who's studio is on my visit list..I have just the spot for a giant budgerigar, seriously I do! Hope your week has started well, I'd like to say mine has but I'd be fibbing :) Take care and stay safe....Linking to Monday Mural..

  1. I had to click on your link to see what a budgie smuggler was. I'm almost sorry I did. Most politicians really don't have the bodies for that sort of swim gear. That said, that mural is very cute. I can see why you would like it.

  8. My week started with sunshine. And very warm weather, at least for Sweden in September. Oh, and I never use budgie smugglers.

  17. Funny to see a budgie at a French Cafe .... he's obviously got refined tastebuds. No seeds and nuts for this bird it's tarte-tartine washed down with a very strong espresso.

  26. I so look forward to see it soon again, Grace. So much has changed/is added!
    Voting over here soon, too - still I´m not 100% sure whom to give my voice.

  29. Grace, you decided to play! Welcome, girl. Very endearing pretty bird image. No wonder you look forward to seeing it on your way to the cafe. I say go for it to have your very own sweet bird. Oh, and thanks for the local language translation. I was in the dark. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  30. Don't know why I thought of it, but that could SO be from the cover of a Beatles album circa Sgt. Pepper or Magical Mystery Tour.
