Going for daily walks at lunch time is a good thing in so many different ways. A few weeks ago, I took photos of the summer plant display in front of the Melbourne Town Hall. The following week, I went back the same way, and the scene was completely different. Staff were dismantling the display and only a few broken, forlorn-looking plants were left in the big water-filled metal pans. A little shocked at the sudden (to me!) change from the beautiful display I'd seen not long before, I asked one of the staff what was going to happen to the plants. She said I could have one.
It must like being at my house, because it's flowered already!
Thank you, City of Melbourne, for my free plant baby.
