A local walk
If I am home when R returns from work we usually go out for a forty minute stride. He has his own route, but when I am present, we usually go in a direction that I like. I like the streets of South Yarra. Just one street away from the busy St Kilda Road where we live, it is peaceful and quiet in the streets of South Yarra. South Yarra is a very nice place to live, if you can afford it.
I absolutely love Magnolia trees. Every place where we have lived, I planted one. Now, I must walk and appreciate others. The pink one is at a house next to the synagogue. It Magnolia Solangeana, variety, the most popular.
I took a pic of some nice azaleas showing through a fence along the way, Azalea Indica I believe.
I recall that there used to be two knockout white Magnolias along with a stunning pink one in Park Street. The pink one seems to have gone and there is now only one white one. Here is Magnolia Alba.
