What colour! Last week I took this photo in the warmth of the Fitzroy Gardens Conservatory, Melbourne.
I’ll submit it as part of Cee’s Photo Challenge but that glorious pink is the plants’ bracts, not the flowers of the poinsettia.
It was a cool afternoon in June with occasional sun … great for some of us to stroll in the park and enjoy these Autumn avenues.
I sought out a special ‘Fairies Tree‘ in the park. The sun came out again.
First carved in the 1930’s by Ola Cohn who wanted children and those people who believe in fairies to know there was a sanctuary for them, here. It was restored in the 1970’s and is such delightful whimsy …
…. with lots of talking points and stories here.
