another (little) farewell

but first...

...there was audio-music in the bushland, as we walked closer to next amazing sculpture - not knowing then what it was leading to, or why? 

There were many photos from a wonderful day visit to Bruno's Gardens, that I'd shared some years back. 

Tragically, fires swept through this township soon afterwards,  destroying Bruno's hard work .... but certainly not his spirit. 

You can read from Bruno's website here, what happened then, and how he with many helpers, have worked together and regenerated this wonderful tourist attraction in Marysville, Victoria.

It's tandem-farewells today from both Snap Happy Online, and Snap Happy Birding.  I left the first post on my original blog, a little earlier.  You can read it here.

Hi Carole,
Beautiful pictures of these beautiful sculptures.
The piano man I find totally amazing.

I find it very sad that you stop with blogger.
Thanks for all the beautiful and sweet words, that I got on my blog from you.
Best regards, Irma

Oh these are wonderful. Sad to read they are no more. Even more so that your blog too will be no more. Hopefully you will find you just needed a holiday from blogging and in time will resume once again. I know sometimes I get that feeling. Now comes the dilemma for me...from where will I get my daily Australia fix? Take care, be safe and I/we will always be here for your return. Thank you for the Australian road trip.

Again :o( - I learned so much from you about places and things I'd never have had the pleasure to see if not for you. Perhaps someday you be back. I've been blogging since 2008 and while I enjoyed my 2 months off this summer I was so happy to be back. You will be missed.
