Hi Friends,
I’ve been away too long and just wanted to check in and say hello. I’m just recovering from my second wave of pneumonia, so I’m really looking forward to Spring. I just had to share this garden with you. My best friend lives near here in Victoria, Australia and we are suppose to visit them next Summer.
This is one of the things I really wanted to see. Please read the link at the top.

They say Spring is just around the corner, but do you notice they never
tell you which corner! I’m ready, how about you?

I would love to visit that garden too Harli. Wouldn't it be a sight to see? I love those clouds too. Where was that photo taken please?

Hi Gili
That is Mt. Rainier in Washington State in the Pacific NW part of the USA. I see it every day as does almost the whole state, and I can't imagine not seeing it anymore.
That Australian artist is just incredible and it must be heartbreaking to have to start over again.

Hope you're well recovered from your illness Harli? Take it easy on the gardening - I'm sure you don't want a third bout of pnuemonia. Lovely garden!

What beautiful sculptures, amazing talent

Oh no!!! That beautiful garden and sculptures has been hit. This is from Bruno's website......

"Important Message
On Saturday the 7th of February 2009 The Township of Marysville and the surrounding area was ravaged by bushfires and is still in a state of emergency. Firstly I would like to say that Bruno and his family are safe and well.
Unfortunately the family home and the gallery have been destroyed. The sculpture garden has sustained severe damage, but hopefully a good portion of the sculptures will be able to be salvaged.
Bruno and the family intend to try and rebuild the sculpture garden and gallery in the near future and will provide updates on this website as regularly as possible."

How awful. Such beauty destroyed. :o(
