Very nice, and with pretty flowers at the front. Most councils don't bother with them any more.
What a beautiful building and gorgeous garden!
Andrew - there's a lot of civic pride in Ararat - without it being all fancified and gentrified like some country towns.It's one of the things that immediately attracted us when we accidentally moved here 3 years ago.
Sonia - We have some lovely buildings in Ararat - like most towns built on the goldrush.We recently had a big new police station built between 2 beautiful old buildings and everyone held their breath waiting for some hideous modern thing.But surprise surprise even though it is modern - it's a very sympathetic design.
What a glorious old building and beautiful garden. I love old Australian towns like this. When you drive in you just take a big breath, sigh and soak it all up. Thanks for sharing. It's food for my soul this morning.Anne xx
Anne - that's exactly how I feel when I get home from my travels - driving down that main street feels so wonderful.

this is not daily(ish) Lettys, not even monthy(ish) looks like this is yearly(ish). i don't even remember what blogs i have. i forgot the long in names passwords. My main blog is nearly dead. i think i had six blogs. Many test blogs where i experiment with different templates without knowing HTML or HMTL. i have goofed on few of them. Now i realise i don't want to write, don't like posting pictures. i just want to play with them when i have nothing else to do.EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
What a handsome building!Victorian?
OK I have counted the flowers. I will start on the leaves.
Ok now I've counted the leaves......
Badger - awww - shuddup.
It's so beautiful.Sydney - City and Suburbs
Truly civic spirit, great take, Letitia!(Re J Bar's comment: at first glance I red "City and Shrubs" )
