Changes at the club, and a walk around Petersham.

We have returned to the club on mondays after a few months off bingo is the same buts lots of other changes some of the rainforest has disappeared and has been replaced by more seating for the cafe I will miss it as I liked the animals the water and all the tropical plants even if most were plastic well the animals were but the fish are real and a fair size, they must be fed in this spot as they are always here waiting.  


This fellow is new or moved
There are waterfalls lovely and cool in summer, this just drops off one floor to the one below hard to see but you can hear it.
but some of the rain forrest is still there
I'm very fond of these mats just a bit different.


My Lily of the Valley is flowering it is so small and pretty but it doesn't even have leaves yet.
Drummy eating green vegs this bit got stuck.
These photos are me trying to take the wren family but they are so small and fast.



Last weekend I went to visit my daughter and her partner. We went for a walk early to have our breakfast so many choices here as you can see the weather is lovely, good for talking a few photos along the way.
Love all the chimney stacks.
Old houses are everywhere so close to Sydney central.
I do like this stairway
Walls are interesting painted with tiger cubs monkeys and birds.
Even a castle of sorts
I have to catch a bus on this corner to go to the hospital when the babies arrive won't be long now.
My daughter making friends with a friendly cat.
Lots of flowers every where.
Everyone needs a nude lady in the front yard, but I don't have one.

    Oooh spring is sprugning! These clubs are all the time 'updating' - not always for the better methinks. Have you been crocheting bootees??? YAM xx

    1. Not done a lot of knitting, they will be summer babies and will not need many clothes and they have a fair bit and no space to put them all. Will make more when they are older.

  2. Loved walking with you and your daughter.
    Wrens are super fast aren't they? Greased lightening is slow and predictable by comparison.

    1. Wrens are also very camera shy they know when I have the camera nearby.

    1. The soul of Sydney still lives but all the new buildings are slowing killing it.

  4. I don't have a nude lady in my front yard either.
    The club is looking lovely, but the mats aren't to my taste.
    My mum's favourite scent was Lily of the Valley, do your flowers have a scent?

    1. I only planted the bulbs a couple of weeks ago so I was so surprised when I got flowers and I can't smell this time of the year.

  5. The club water feature is very nice. The two old houses look very Sydney. No garden so no nude man or lady here.

  7. Hello Merle....The waterfalls do, indeed, look refreshing. The "nude" lady is tastefully done. Loved your photos. Thanks for all your visits. Susan

  8. Hi Merle, I like the inside of the club - it does look cool and inviting and I love the sound of water. The fish are pretty, but look like they might take a finger or toe :0 Nice to see the sights around your daughter's neighborhood. Looks like a nice, quiet place. Love those big trees with the spreading branches. The friendly cat is quite an unusual color. So exciting that the babies will be here soon! xx K

  11. What a nice walk you took with your daughter, Merle. I love the blue stairway picture, and the lady statue is charming.
