I am fairly sure these are feijoa fruit, quite edible. Aka, pineapple guava.
Chillis for eating, not for a vase.
Either limes or lemons, not sure.
A violinist near our favourite grungy Melbourne laneway brunch venue. He looks like a gypsy. We are usually found sitting at outdoor seats a couple of metres to the right. So many people take photos down the lane from the short flight of steps and no doubt we are in many of them. I skimmed through about a hundred or the seemingly thousands of photos of Centre Place online, but I couldn't see us. Maybe just as well.
Note the old sign up top, Bottom of the Harbour, a fish a chips outlet. Bottom of the Harbour as I remember it was a tax avoidance scheme, somehow involving asset stripping a company and then sending the remains to 'the bottom of the harbour'. It was such a blatant tax avoidance scheme that even the conservative government at the time had to stamp on its rich mates' scheme.
Confectionery Free Checkout! Interesting. QV Safeway, oops Woolworths, would have the lowest number of child visitors to any supermarket, I should think.
Has Little Jo mucked with my phone camera settings? This seems very bright. The MacRob fountain is undergoing heavy maintenance, to the point where it seems to have been taken apart. I expect it will be back in functioning order come the big war anniversary events at the nearby Shrine of Remembrance. I took a photo of the fountain some years ago. I will take a much better one once it is fixed up and functioning.
Grow some dahlias folks. They are lovely.
The blinds are only shut when it is really hot or to block the bright sun in the morning. I don't know why this three string blind less than a metre wide always sags. I can fix it by pulling on the correct string to lift one side, but it is tiresome. Let it sag.
A bumble bee bum at the Melbourne Recital Centre. Why?
It had not rained for a while and as the rain began, cars left foaming tyre trails.
Is it detergent in car oil that leaks on the roadway? Somewhat disturbing really.
Now outside our wonderful State Library. The best chess games to watch are when a fast young whipper-snapper beats an older person who has been making very thoughtful and considered moves. I wish there was an Abbot piece on the chessboard as what fun we could have at the expense of Prime Minister Abbott and his Foreign Minister Bishop who is a possible challenger, or even the Speaker of the House, another Bishop.
