The local skate park here in Wongan Hills provides the kids with a safe place to ride their bikes, skateboards or just generally hangout. The fact that it has been built right opposite the police station probably cuts out a lot of anti social behaviour which can sometimes plague skate parks. I liked the two murals which have been painted here to brighten up the concrete.
This one depicts our hills, wildflowers and farming crops and sheep. It is on the reverse side of the first one. Note the police station across the road.
I am so pleased with the way my vege garden is now progressing. It seemed to be very dormant for quite some time. Not knowing the growing conditions up here I was beginning to think I was wasting my time. The rain we are having at the moment has revived and invigorated everything. My only concern now is that we are going away next week for a couple of weeks and broccoli and cabbages will be ready for picking. Hopefully they get a move on and I can pick some before I go, otherwise my neighbours will be in luck. Last week we had a new dividing fence erected, it makes such a difference for ours and the neighbours privacy. These are my fences once again for Fridays Fences.
Spinach, Lettuce and herbs in foreground
Broccoli, Cauliflower and Cabbage
Sugar Snap Peas and Broad Beans
Lettuce and radish
Parsley and Corriander
Now I can plant out new garden on this side now that the fence is complete
Grey sky today. We are loving it. The winter here has been so mild, so that today we are extremely happy to be finally getting a taste of good rain. The wheat farmers will be over the moon about the wet weather. It would be such a good night to stay in, but we are off to a Christmas in July dinner at the local Bowling Club, how I wish I had not booked our dinner.
A lot of old concrete bus shelters in Perth have been spruced up with murals. This one is on Safety Bay Road in the coastal suburb of Safety Bay. The idea of allowing artists to decorate the bus shelters makes them more pleasing to the eye and also hopefully deters the graffiti artists vandals, apparently there is supposed to be an unwritten rule that they do not deface another artists work. Unfortunately, it still seems to open slather by some.
