Today Melbourne is melting after the third day of above 40 degrees. And still another day to go before the cool change..pheww.
Here’s a photo that might you feel a little cooler, beautiful cherries. It’s part of the Sprout magazine 2014 calendar. The photos were taken by my very talented brother Arunas.
Royal Park, what a great park….who knew? Obviously everyone except me. I wanted to explore this little gem when I heard that it may be affected by the East West tunnel construction.
For a start it’s HUGE and wonderful. It has it’s own native grass area, bushland, and stunning wetland areas full of wildlife. It’s these wetlands that will be most affected by the road works with a section being lost, but the government promises to restore and enhance all vegetation making it better than before. Let’s hope so! The wetlands are the home of the fabulously named pobblebonk frog.
My cousin Danius Kesminas is a member of Slave Pianos art group and has an installation as part of the Melbourne Now exhibition on at the Ian Potter Centre Federation Square.
An amazing gamalan style dual piano construction that plays requests. Definitely worth a look if you’re gallery hopping over the New Year break.
