Quiet companions

On our recent trip to Bega to catch up with Ronnie and check out her exhibition in the Spiral Gallery we passed through a really small town called Nimmitabel. It is one of those towns that continues to exist because it provides a trip stop for travellers; and they have an excellent bakery. Fiona and I stopped for breakfast - great coffee and absolutely fresh bakery bits.

On our way back to Canberra we spotted the above  'tree' situated in a roadside spot  - not a park - just a spot near a farm fence.

The 'tree' has no sign to say why it is there or who created it - but the local magpies think it is not a bad roosting site - one dropped in to check out the immobile locals. Whilst we were there one of the local horses came to the fence and insisted that Fiona give it a bit of a scratch and pat.

I just love it when we discover these bits of art in the most surprising places - just makes you smile and makes one feel good to be part of the art community.
