Noticed this polar bear mural in Vincent Street, just a few hundred metres from the sculpture in yesterday’s blog post. It’s by Robert Jenkins and has some amusing details, like this:

Autumn in Perth’s Bold Park, and not so many wildflowers to admire. But that yellowish plant in the left foreground deserves a closer look. It’s Coastal Daisy Bush, which has tiny yellow flowers but is rapidly approaching the end of its flowering season.

The plant is also known as Wild Rosemary and was reportedly used as a culinary herb by sailors on ships that came here in the 17th century.
