Linking with Astrid for this week's hunt.
I found this one quite hard and have gone a little off piste and tied it into a wonderful place we've visited several times now, the first just before we went into our first major lockdown in March last year.
My initial thoughts were: Earth - soil. Earth - our planet.
Taking all this into account, I hope this isn't too weird.
Heading into the hills north-east of Melbourne there are parks, where we stopped for lunch on one of our forays in December & I snapped this gorgeous dogwood in flower, which of course is connected to the earth by way of soil here on our planet. OK, the other photos will not have so much silly info.😉

And this is where we were headed.
Somewhere we'd passed many times over the years and it was either not open or we didn't have time to stop. For someone like me who loves old, quirky & just browsing it's a wonderland and we've now been a few times after we've been "let out" again. In December we basically had the place to ourselves, except for the owners.
In no praticular order, just hope you all had a giggle and then this one below, came as a surprise.
Can you imagine him in your front yard..............
Now, one last little bit with a story to it. and I do hope I don't offend anybody, but we laughed a lot.
Checking out this lovely table & chairs, a lady who was looking at it too, started talking to me about all the wonderful quirky pieces that were there. Suddenly I started to giggle and she looked around to see what had caught my eye and her reaction was "OMG, he's mine..." Off she ran in the direction of her young son, carrying around the torso (in the truck below), with each hand holding onto a protrusion, grabbing it and depositing in said truck and shutting the window.
OK, not offended? It was funny.
Hope you haven't been bored by my wafflings & weird sense of humour. I'll link this later as I was interrupted and now I'm off to make us some lunch. Cold again today, overcast with a few showers and very windy.
Have a great weekend all, take care and stay safe.
Hugs from down under, Susan.
