Merri Creek
Is a place I spend a lot of time. I love it. A creek that cuts through the suburbs, providing a beautiful escape from the city right in the middle of it. It has been used and abused, a lot of Melbourne's bluestone has come from the Merri Creek, and often it is full of rubbish. But the locals are doing their best to bring it back to life. Its beautiful. I walk my dog down there and just escape to the sound of water and birds. Its the secret heart of the city. At the moment its winter and the wattles are blooming everywhere. Little tiny ones, big fat fluffy ones, longer ones all glowing in the sunshine. Today I saw a hawk down there, and the other day, a pair of tawny frog mouth.
