We’ve just been up to the local community garden to get some stuff and we took some photos on the way.
We grabbed some snaps of our own passionfruit vine – which is pretty leaf-less this time of year (we’re heading into winter in Sydney).
This is my version of the Golden Dawn meander. Golden Dawn is obviously a popular topic among most nationalists and it wasn’t hard to use the bricks as a guide.
The passionfruit vine has lost most of its leaves at this time of year. You can see the darkening fruit in contrast to the green leaves.
Look at these end of season passionfruit! They will go really well in ice-cream or pavlova. They will probably need a few more days for that green to disappear.
These are old mansions from the 1880’s on Smith St. Now mostly students and backpackers live in them.
On the way up the hill we ran into Neville. Nev Jones is a Summer Hill regular and has been here for 28 years. His wife was a fixture and they used to hang out together all the time. But word is she’s passed on.
This is part of the church. As Neville told us it was built in 1885. We’ll have to find out more about it.
Detail of the bell tower.
The front of the church hall next door to the actual church.
We walked down between the hall and church and found this above a door. I think St Andrew’s has a bit of a military association. Again this is something we’ll have to look up.We kept walking and then suddenly we came into a bit of a yard and found these chickens 🙂 They were as surprised as us and quickly disappeared back through the fence into their yard.The Community garden at 135 Smith St.Some lovely rocket. Some baby leeks rhubarb and marigold.
