Plants, parks and gardens (PPG) in Melbourne Pt 1

From the rooftop of the War Memorial we viewed this thirsty (they have water restrictions e.g. category 3 when we were there) tree-bordered lawn
I looked back at the War Memorial and this is what I saw- the building right at the centre of the garden!
Further along is my garden...I mean the queen victoria garden.
This is a drought victim watch, a gift from the Swiss - otherwise it is an attractive feature infront of that monument (sorry forgot to take note who's on top of the horse).
More on Melbourne here and here.

Ray at 17's new surrounds

Ray turns 17 on the 7th Feb 2007 and he will spend it as a day in high school at his new school, St. Joseph's Nudgee College.
Nudgee Chapel is one of the oldest in the state and it has palm trees and a rose garden.
Ray gets to and from there everyday through the bus. So far, he really loves it there.
