5000 POPPIES - FEDERATION SQUARE


We were in awe at Federation Square last night at the sight of a carpet of crocheted poppies flowing down the steps of Federation Square providing an amazing tribute to the ANZACS. We learnt that for the past two years a community project called 5000 Poppies with an enormous contingent of volunteers has been busily making the flowers and yesterday they were connected in an enormous carpet of respect and honour.  Magnificent Melbourne. Bon Vivant J&J.

INVASION OF THE FRUIT BAT


We were quite surprised when we entered the atrium at Federation Square a few weekends to find an invasion of fruit bats above our heads. We discovered it was "Batmania", an artwork by sculptor Kathy Holowko.  Now what did Batman say "Holy Catastrophe!"
