As much as the Martin Place Christmas tree always looks good - it's the same every year. I think we are due for something else. This one is great for the people visiting Sydney, but for thise of us who live here - can we please have a new style and colour next year????

The rain ended, for now, and I went to Hyde Park expecting to see all the flowers loving it, but no......they have all gone, trashed by the storms! The Archibald Fountain has construction screens around it and the grass needs some horses, sheep and cattle to move in and eat it!!
