The other side of the road..



Just a few shots to show you what lies behind the magnificent Moreton Bay Fig trees in yesterdays post.. the good side of the road! First shot, the entrance into the Supreme Court Gardens off busy St. Georges Terrace, the gardens are always lovely but in spring they are especially so.. and surprising also, I'm not sure if I've ever seen rhubarb (below) used as a border plant before :) here combined with red geraniums..


Close up just to be sure :) rhubarb.. right! Maybe not :)


 If you look carefully you can just see the Bell Tower down there on the Esplanade above the trees to the very right..


Below the Supreme Court building established in 1861. Here unfortunately looking a little washed out in the midday sun, apologies!



Looking down Barrack St. below another view of the Weld Club and in the distance through the trees a glimpse of the Narrows Bridge..


... and to finish, below the entrance into the gardens from along the Esplanade. It will be interesting to see how the established here, and the new modern architecture just across the road will meld together. Perth and particularly St. Georges Terrace is already a mix of old and new, it might work.. desperately trying to keep an open mind here :) Happy Wednesday, take care..

  8. I think they use rhubard because most people don't recognise it here so they don't steal it... It looks lovely though, doesn't it? And very tempting! Such lovely spring views!

  16. This reminds me, my rhubard needs some TLC. Gotta do some research. Just not getting my once large, flowing crop.

    BTW, I always get Swiss chard and rhubarb mixed up. Could be a baking disaster.
