How well have grevilleas flowered this year! They are making hay while the sun shines, or rather when the rain falls. I cannot remember them being as brilliant ever before. I was a bit slow off the mark as these ones at the Prahran Police Station are just past their prime. They looked stunning at their peak.

The white roses were planted as a memorial to police officers Steve Tynan and Damian Eyre, killed while on duty in Walsh Street, South Yarra.


  1. Both grevillias and roses have also been both early and luxuriant in our neck of the woods this year. OTOH, here the aggies blooms have been slow in appearing but look like they're in vast numbers. (Just as well. Schoolkids are heading towards the school hols and need plenty of them for their mock sword fights.)

  2. Are they too poor to have computers to amuse them? Not sure this real play stuff is good.
