A taste of Melbourne: the old and the new.

Continuing yesterday’s tour, just some of the many photos I took. I apologise that I don’t know how to place the photos on the page to my satisfaction. I hope you enjoy having a glimpse of our verdant city with its multiformity. The Plane trees have been injected this year with something to prevent  the pollens in the air creating havoc with hay-fever; which works a treat.

    Don’t worry about it, Ba – NO-ONE is able to place multiple photos with the slightest accuracy (not unless you have one of those photo themes). These are absolutely fine, and confirm that fact that this tour must be absolutely terrific ! Goodonyer !
