While walking in the Darebin Parklands this morning, I came across this interesting arrangement of leaves and flowers in the midst of a circle of small stones. It was by the creek, under some gum trees and it immediately struck me as some sort of propitiatory offering to Mother Nature, or some sort of apotropaic symbol averting the evils of our times.
You can see sweet violets, fumitory, wild mustard flowers, buttercups and three-cornered leek flowers, all arranged within a circle of gum leaves.

A good thing to do!ReplyDelete
Thank you DearReplyDelete
How sweet. Some would say maybe the fairies did it. :)ReplyDelete
I've never seen an offering like that. Does it have anything to do with religion or a cultural superstition or tradition?ReplyDelete
I don't have a lot of photos based on flowers, but I have a couple. I linked one I did about Japan's sunflower heaven. I hope you like it.
Thank you for hosting. :-)
