This one is not my photo and I've tested what it suggests a few times and it simply does not work. Try it yourself and let me know if yours works.
Did I show you these unusual iris before? Brown and yellow are the colours of the Hawthorn Football Club, the team Sister supports, so we bought her a bunch.
Lovely symmetry and I would like to revisit the house when the magnolia is larger, but I can't remember the location of the house.
Much work has been undertaken below The Highrise, which I will get around to showing you at some point. It is still unfinished. It's a pity it is dirty, but how terrific that these old electrical boxes were restored and reused. There are at least three of them that I have seen. M&MTB stands for the now defunct Melbourne and Metropolitan Tramways Board.
Several years ago a glass topped table on someone's balcony was lifted by a strong wind from a balcony and it landed on the open surface of the recreation area.
We rarely walk southwards on the eastern side of Chapel Street Prahran, so this came as a bit of a surprise to me.
From our building's noticeboard. Art of Stone in Oxford Street, Paddington! Wow!
"But honey, it was cheap, one owner and low mileage. And it has velvet lining in the back and we could sleep there when we have weekends away."
An interesting little display in Campbell's Arcade (Degrave Street Subway) about Tasmanian Aborigines and dingoes. I think both were eliminated from Tasmania.
This is replica of the Welcome Stranger gold nugget that brought about huge immigration to Australia in the 1800s as people arrived to find gold. Most who became wealthy from gold did not search for gold but supplied the miners. It is on display at the Old Treasury Building.
Somehow this building opposite the Old Treasury Building survived Whelan the Wrecker, with only is southern wing demolished. It was once a private house built by a wealthy pastoralist but is now offices.
Which dressing will I have? The almost empty one of course and get rid of it, because that is the kind of thing I do. I really like Zoosh dressings, but the supermarkets seem to now be not liking Zoosh so much. I can never find their nice French dressing.
Once the Koala Motor Inn, this building was converted to bedsit apartments and sprinklers were retrospectively fitted. A friend owned one for a short time. It had nice views over Albert Park. The late Dame M went to a rooftop party there when it was still a motel.
I think it was Marie in London who shared some photos of real English Tudor buildings. They looked a bit wonky to me. Isn't our mock Tudor so much nicer and practical.
Prahran Station surrounded by some very ordinary modern buildings. I entered from the newish southern platform entrance, which seemed to be so much bother to have made, as documented by Marcus Wong.
The two storey white building is the former Station Hotel, with the train bursting out from the front of it. I continue to remember this wrongly, even though I corrected myself back in 2012. (There is a good photo there)
R: I wonder why all the birds (Indian Mynas) are on the balcony.
Me: Why didn't you say so earlier? They will crap everywhere.
I shooed them away, but it was too late.
I had only washed this cushion cover two weeks ago and now I have to do it again. The covers are very difficult to get on the foam cushions. (I left it for a couple of days, hoping it would dry and scrape off. It didn't and had to be washed out. No stain)
Last Sunday we raided Mother's garden, picking some camellia flowers and japonica (flowering quince) R arranges flowers with great care and skill, but no sooner than they were arranged they were hit by the heating and the flowers started dropping off. Oh well, they float nicely .I think Mother has about ten camellias in her large garden.
