Of course, I have been home for a couple of days while I float between Ballarat and Melbourne, housesitting and staying back at Mum's, working on university essays and then attending classes back in Melbourne.
These two photos were taken (on different days), on walks from home to Lake Wendouree.
The Arch of Victory was stunning as the sun was setting behind it, catching the light. This was the very arch that we found was mentioned in a visual display at the more famous, international Arc de Triomphe.
The colours of the Botanical Gardens caught my eye on a lap around the lake. So pretty, and vibrant! If this was anywhere else in the world, I may have been wowed by this kind of display - although I am not always taken by gardens in a big way. Still, the blooms and Statuary Pavilion are pretty impressive at this time of year.
I guess it takes time away to fully appreciate home! Although just for a visit, now and then!
