You are my sunshine, my only sunshine

today, we had a bit of sunshine and what better way to spend a day that was preceded by rainy days....going for walks around the gardens in the city......sipping a cold drink....

First at the Carlton Gardens, where the Royal Exhibition Building is....how i love this fountain, where people can throw coins and make a wish....who knows...




the building is a world heritage site, it simply looks majestic...



some mothers took the chance of a lovely day to bring the kids around, and for some, to cycle around...



with the uni exams coming up, studying at the gardens refreshes your mind



or you can bring your mum for a walk, she'll surely appreciate that...




pre-wedding photoshoots can also be fun, with the many benches around, couples can always relax after making a hundred poses directed by the untiring photographer...



and behind the exhibition building is the melbourne museum where you can look at the many artifacts about australia...




after an hour, we took the city circle tram
 and visited the Conservatory at Fitzroy Gardens
 to look at the spring flower collection....

Goodbye, dear spring

walking along tree-lined paths in Fitzroy gardens with my husband, on a not-so-gloomy sunday afternoon.....ah, i love doing this when i have to think about a lot of things, it's almost therapeutic...even the drizzles did not seem to bother me....



Someone has written that "All of life is a canvas painted by God"
...this album was inspired by that quote.

Have you seen a wallaby?

I could not stop smiling whenever I think of the joey that was sticking out of its mother wallaby's pouch. Having been in Australia for nearly eight years, I think that was the first time I have ever seen a joey, in a pouch! These photos were taken at Ballarat's Wildlife Park. A place where you can feed the kangaroos and the wallabies, thus making the animals come to you...either for a feed or for photos, of course!
A wallaby is an animal native to Australia.
