One thing that can be said about Melburnians is that nearly all of us are garden mad. A very large number of houses in Melbourne have a front and back garden and there are many a gardener inhabiting these houses. As a consequence, it is no surprise that there are many nurseries and garden centres scattered around the suburbs.

Taking advantage of the lovely Spring weather yesterday, we popped over to Bulleen Art and Garden, a garden centre close to us, which as well as selling plants also sells art  pieces. This mural is situated at the front of the garden centre and is made of ceramic components mounted on the wall. The shadows from the strong sunshine make the sculptural mural even more interesting.

This post is part of the Monday Murals meme,
and also part of the Ruby Tuesday meme.


  1. It would be hard to miss Bulleen Art & Garden with these vibrant colours. Wasn't it nice to have glorious sunshine yesterday?

  2. I agree, it is very nice, even though the faces are a little frightening - but I do like the use of the sculptures on the wall! And I love the red wall!

  3. Wow that is an impressive piece of art, you can't miss it.

  4. Hi Nick,
    This bright red mural is really appealing, especially on a clear day.

  5. What fun, colorful shots, Nick!! Love the bright red! Fascinating sculptures! Have a great evening!!

  6. the faces remind me of grotesques and gargoyles.
