Let's take a walk...

It was such a glorious day in Melbourne on Sunday I decided to take the camera with me when I went for a walk to the supermarket.

So, out the door and I couldn't resist the roses in our front garden.

About half-way down our street the council has renovated the playground.

It's so much nicer than it was. It's funny but you don't actually see a lot of kids in the area, although I'm sure they're there. Maybe it's because we're only just coming into summer now and the weather's a bit better. Dunno.

Anyway, we're not far from the station, and I had to stop at the level crossing when a train came out of the station.

I actually had to stop on the way back from the supermarket for a train heading in the other direction too.

Our street is lined with beautiful Jacaranda trees and almost all of them are now in bloom - such purple gorgeousness!!

The thing that surprises me somewhat is the proliferation of olive trees in the area - they're starting to fruit now and I think they'll be picked in about April of next year.

And then back home.
