Strolling in City Park , wearing a black and white chevron stripe poncho, purchased recently from
Yeltour , one of our small family owned local clothing stores , at least it was , as of the end of this
month it will become part of a much larger interstate group of stores. I have been shopping there
since it began trading in about 1970 and we have grown up together.I know this is a sign of the times
but I always have a tinge of sadness when a local small business is lost.
I have had my little rant now back to the park.
City Park is always an enjoyable place to visit, with its many Victorian features, such as this cast iron
drinking fountain built in honour of Queen Victoria's Jubilee in 1887.
Wasn't it so very generous of the children to present this to the city for future generations to enjoy.
I always love the elaborate details from the Victorian era, when over the top was never too much.
Perching rather precariously on the edge of a rather elaborate fountain in another area of the park. Looking
back over the shots we have taken today is a gentle reminder of some of the beauty we are surrounded by
and really just take for granted. Our small city has so much to offer in terms of natural beauty , so easily
overlooked as we attend to our every day.
Blowing in the breeze, as I reflect on the future of this city and my place in it.
Wearing boots by Paco Herero , for # iwillwearwhatilike with Catherine at Not Dressed as Lamb, this weeks theme is statement shoes and these days as my feet have changed , this is my version of statement shoes(or more correctly boots).
Finishing with the glorious colour of these poppies blooming in the park.
