  1. I could see myself spinning a yarn or two and looking up and seeing this.
    Very very fitting for the Games.

  2. I see you reached the inner courtyards of the Mouseion and its wonderful gardens. I wonder if I could pluck a leaf to use in my stew next time?

    The pink magnolias were also beautiful this spring. 🙂

  7. Hi Monica,
    Now where in the City of Port Phillip do we have a BAY LAUREL…….its not called Bay because it grows near the sea is it……
    I can’t find it in my Garden book of Trees
    I have the Japanese Laurel which grows to about 4 metres …..
    Your one looks like a bigger tree and mine is a varigted leaf form …

    Beautiful …angie has Bay trees which she keeps clipped into big rounds
    the Garden Nursery in Middle Park said they would be worth at $3000 each and she has 4 of them in the front garden along the fence line quite beautiful………

  8. I love laurel trees for obvious reasons (Lori = germanic version of Laurel).
