After my last post, my mate Al sent me this absolutely fabulous photo. It appeals to me on so many levels.
It is a photo of a Hills Hoist clothes line which has been taken over by a passionfruit vine. How Australian is that? An Australian icon covered in an Australian icon.
What I love so much about this photo is the owners’ sense of endurance (or sense of humour) in hanging their socks and tea towels on the line. There is no suggestion the vine must give way for the clothes. Oh no! The clothes must give way to the vine. How wonderful! I love the owners of this house. They understand that not everything should be pruned to fit into a nice convenient life. Sometimes we must bend to fit in with nature.
