Carolyn Page has sent us an Australian nature mural & a joyful study of its nature, just in time for the Vernal Equinox.
Carolyn says, ” It is above a travelator and smacks of all things Australian.”
“I’d love to highlight a few of the images such as our delightful Kookaburra; an Auzzie Icon.”
“Our beautiful Parrots, of which there are many and varied with beautiful colours; include this beauty.”
“Our Wattle Trees in bloom look glorious lining our major highways during late winter to early spring.”
“The wall art image doesn’t show their true high yellow colour, but, I was so pleased to see them highlighted as Australiana.”
“They are the little round bubble-like images below the Koala.”
“Then there’s the Banksia; a native plant so attractive in flower:”
“Australia just isn’t Oz without the Eucalyptus Tree’s Gumnuts acclaimed within author, Illustrator and cartoonist, Mae Gibbs’ children books, including ‘Meet Snugglepot and Cuddlepie’, her lovable bush characters.”
“Once again the wall art composition doesn’t highlight their true essence. However, the Eucalyptus Tree’s Gumnuts are, once again, iconic to Australia:”
“This little fellow is hard to see in the wall art, however, he is there hiding as usual. The Australian Possum is a nocturnal creature, though; he can be heard (if not seen) during the day scampering amongst the trees.”
“(Not to be confused with the Opossum, the Possum lives in trees and keeps very much to himself. He can be ‘tamed’ to a degree with enticing titbits to eat.)”
“Next is a little Golden Bell Frog frog.”
“He too is almost hiding. You can just see him in the lower right hand corner!”
“And last, but not least, is our cuddly Koala. He really is the cutest thing!”

“Here is an impression of our ‘future’ Mall Indoor/Outdoor Garden Restaurant Area. I’m so impressed… :)It seems Green Hill will be double celebrating the arrival of spring this year!”
