The strength and diversity of women..



Each time I visit Kings Park Botanical Gardens I make new discoveries.. like the sculptures above by Coral Lowry and Holly Story tucked away in a secluded spot. Using 'symbolic plant forms, these five sculptures invite you to reflect on the importance and diversity of the contribution of women to the community'.. the symbols also embedded in the pathway below depicting life, growth, strength of heart, leadership, and renewal. I like it very much! I absolutely mean it when I say TGIF, roll on a cooler week please! Happy Friday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. early bed with killer headache last night, big catch up today!
