Spotted while strolling down a quiet St Kilda street, a group of lorikeets were having an absolute ball playing in the tall fountain in the middle of the roundabout. They were making quite a ruckus but it was such a joyful sound as they took it in turns to play in the water.
What a surprising splash of greenery down a laneway amid the noise, bustle and concrete of inner city Melbourne. There’s something very domestic about the ramble of plants in pots and hanging off balconies, and the line of pots at the end of the lane. It gives the impression that it’s been done by plant-loving residents rather than as part of a business strategy. I’d love to see more plants in the city.
