The horticultural 'finger'.....!


Wouldn't you like to lean against the rail here in Kings Park and look out across to the city and the Swan River, whatever the weather the view is pretty fabulous! The plaque above, just to the side of the State War Memorial is dedicated to the men of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, the ANZAC's who lost their lives in the battle of Gallipoli in 1915. If you visit here regularly you'll know how I feel about the Elisabeth Quay project, I tried to position the long seed pod of the Australian native Grass tree in a sort of horticultural 'rude finger' gesture :)) at the churning up of the foreshore down there to the right of the shot, not sure if it worked but you catch my drift right! Hope your week is moving along nicely, take care.....

  1. I love your idea of a "horticulture rude finger"!! I've got a couple of places here in the northwest that I would like to "plant" one!! That is an awesome view and terrific captures as always! Hope your week is going well!!

  7. It's a fine vista. I can't imagine the view will be improved by the Quay project.

  8. I wonder if there are some early photos of that area before it got so improved?

  9. Ha, you made me laugh out loud. It is a lovely view and can't for the life me understand why or how anyone could improve on it.

  16. Gallipoli was brutal but the courage of the Australian and New Zealand forces became famous. I have a strong memory of our family driving up ANZAC Hill on the north edge of Alice Springs many years ago.

  18. I do hope the development doesn't turn out too bad Grace.

  19. That is a great way to make a statement! Still, I'd love to be leaning on that rail. Or maybe, a nice bench would be better.

  21. ANZAC'S, great men.
    Developers, pains in the backside!

  22. Given the original, politically incorrect nomenclature for said plant, I'd say your gesture is indeed rude, Grace. Nice composition.

  23. We sailed past the site of the battle of Gallipoli while cruising the Dardanelles on the way to Istanbul. What a waste of precious human life. What a sacrifice by brave ANZAC troops and their families.

  24. I don't care about the rude finger, but I like the view at the city anyway.

  25. As usual, I had to do some research before I could appreciate the memorial to the battle of Gallipoli. The percentage of the populations of Australia and NZ killed or wounded there must have been very high.
