Some Photos Of Perth

Firstly this wonderful book that Mandy lent me recently...set on Guernsey in the Channel Islands in the mid 1940s it is a series of warm and funny letters mainly from a young journalist, Julia, and her friends on Guernsey..."The Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society"...just made me want to be there or at least to keep reading about these characters for many more years...hope you can find a copy to read...

The Burswood Dome was only built in 1987 but is being demolished to make way for 1,000 car parking bays! The roof was a huge inflated affair and the Hopman Cup Tennis was played there for many years as well as world famous music acts...

The gardens around Burswood are always so lovely, a touch of spring here as these kangaroo paws begin to flower...

exotic palms...

and Birds of Paradise plants, see how the flower looks like a tropical bird?

That's all for now, off to my knitting needles,
Hope all is well with you and yours,
Love from Sue
