P is for the Perfect Park.

Anzac Park in Glen Innes has it all. A small brook babbles through it's middle, beautiful elms and oaks form shady green avenues and at it's centre is a graceful bandstand. It was erected by the residents of the Glen Innes district to commemorate the death of King Edward VII in 1912, it's looking very good for a 100 year old.

  8. I mentioned a pavilion on my post.

    What I really want to know, a yacca and a yucca, are they 2 different plants?

  9. I love these old bandstands Mark, I can imagine the scene 100 years ago, the audience sitting in deck chairs, ladies in long dresses holding parasols to shade their delicate pale skin, sipping cool drinks. Does this one still get used, we have a few over here that do.
