Mosaic Monday - A Stroll Through The Parklands.

It's been a while since I participated in Mosaic Monday meme ... but I've been thinking about something for the last couple of weeks now and I thought I'd share it with you.  Of course, it's got something to do with flowers and gardens!

In three weeks time, it's our mid-year break from school ... listen carefully, you can hear teachers all over Queensland sighing with relief!  Two terms of teaching over, Semester 1 reports finished, Parent-Teacher interviews completed ... and a two-week break!!!!  Of course, most teachers are back to school in that last week of holidays busily preparing for the next two terms.

For me, it's time to fly down and visit the grandchildren ... oh, and of course, my children!!!  (They always accuse me of thinking of them last!)  Whenever I visit my precious ones, I always try to visit the 16-hectare oasis in the middle of our state's capital city ... the Roma Street Parklands.  It's a breath of fresh air and I can literally spend hours strolling around the wonderful gardens.

So ... here's a quick glimpse of the Parklands from this time last year ... and I'll probably be sharing more photos taken when I get back there very, very soon.

  2. I love the water features. It looks very peaceful here. I have decided Roma Street Park is going on my list of places to visit. I had better start saving.

    Kids are supposed to say grandparents put grandkids first. It's tradition. I don't think they would really have it any other way.
    Have a great time.
