    We were big fans of Paul Keating too! Loved Gough Whitlam as well. Afraid I’m no fan of Bill Shorten though. Marg ox

    Ha! Stickybeak is a new one on me. Love it.

    The sandstone blocks are a wonder … thank goodness for stubborn visionaries!

    And as always, I love the art you bring to us!

  4. Spring there! Ha! Fall here! What’s that song…two different worlds, we live in two different worlds. But here on the web we are one world for a while. Such BLUE skies, and oh the steps and those magnificent stones….I too love the mushroom baskets….but don’t mushrooms require dark and damp? Nice to see you out and about, but what the heck is a stickybeak?

    • Mo Crow says:

      the mushroom vessels are moveable so they could hang in the dark corner of a porch or under a tree canopy
      here’s the Oxford dictionary definition of stickybeak – 1.1 [in singular] An inquisitive or prying look or investigation: guests were invited to have a good old stickybeak around

    I meant to comment when you posted this…I guess other things overtook me! Yes, Paul Keating is much missed.And you know how I love this sort of “open” art.Sculpture by the sea, whichever sea, is always worth seeing.
    Great post, mo. Thanx

    Re: the Greens, I reckon Bob Brown was the best politician ever. Have been voting Greens for years now.

    A fabulous post, Mo, so much to see and link to. It will take me ages to look at everything. Love it all. Thank you.

    Hi MO! Its been forever… sorry to say. Love the stones, mushrooms, everything… Such inspiration here. I just scrolled back through many posts, too many to read properly, but I dipped into text here and there, but mostly savored all the gifts from your hands. Love the crow amulets. Hope things are inspiring for you these days, looks it!
