ADELAIDE'S GRAND OLD DAMES
The particular area where we stayed in Adelaide is known for some of its most beautiful, old and historic homesteads. One street is Victoria Avenue so I deliberately took a walk that way to photograph some of them.
It was a bit voyeuristic, poking my nose (and phone) through gates and fences but I just had to show you some of them. Come for a little wander around Unley with me...
Then have a look at a couple of wee beasties which I'm assured are harmless... not matter how gross they look!

These were plane trees and as you can see, they meet in the middle creating a lovely canopy
I liked the four 'panes' in the fence so you could look in - or, look out!
There's a lot of these rustic fences and gates used in Adelaide but it was the first time I'd seen one with a grill.
Loved the turret!
I always love a parterre garden. Must be the symmetry and neatness of it.
Most of the homes on Victoria Ave had a tennis court.
Absolutely huge property but so beautifully done with a little rotunda in the garden.
This was very modern in comparison but I thought it rather elegant.
This would fit right in, in several London suburbs, or in the country.
This is like a mini castle.
This is the creepy spider on our door. It was a Huntsman.
The fretwork on this is so attractive - and the brick.
Saw my first wild Koala in Belair Park. He was snoozing.
