I love these living walls on houses in Elwood. I probably missed the autumn best of this house. I like the way the red creeper relieves the austerity of the plain grey house.
Passed this colourful and inventive fence surrounding the St Kilda Park Primary School community garden this morning. Its a friendly fence. There is no gate. You can walk in or clamber under the fence posts. It is a very appropriate fence in a public park, Albert Park Reserve. I love colour pencils too.
I was very attracted to this coffee cart in a modified cargo bike which provided hot drink support to the City of Port Phillip's St Kilda Triangle consultation attempt on the St Kilda foreshore this morning. It was bitterly cold, and all wind seemed to concentrate on the particular spot selected for the conversation.

The City of Port Phillip supports urban art in major projects. One of my favourite pieces is the screening fence to the lane at 17 Robe St, St Kilda. Referring to its former use as the Alliance Francaise, the screen along the laneway tells tales from La Fontaine. Each segment of the screen is delightful. Fish, birds and and kangaroo are especially gracefully represented. Martin Hodge is the artist who created this very lovely work which has made a difficult lane charming as well as providing privacy for the residents within.
