A nursery in Lara

from w
Before the sky blackened to a wild storm that gave Geelong torrential rain about 4 p.m. the other day,and we got home ten minutes before the storm, we decided to go down a gravelly road to find the Roraima Nursery which we had seen from the highway may times - glimpsed tropical palms. It indeed was a lovely place with fully grown trees, succulants, sculptures, a garden designer's dream. I took photos and we bought some small plants. Roraima have a website which is worth a look. Of course I couldn't just leave the photo images alone and wanted to create some pictures that suggested feelings such as claustrophobia (Chile miners on my mind - and what courage and wonder today at the successful conclusion to their rescue) and family reunion. I made the pictures by overlapping two images.

What a peaceful spot. Love that bird by Pecili. What's it made of, do you know?

Hello annie,
The bird is metal of some kind. Yes, it was a peaceful place, but the road in to the nursery is unmade and bumpy which doesn't invite shoppers.
