Unusual Flowers.

                     I'm not really sure exactly what these are, but aren't they strange looking things?

Old Spiral Staircase.

Tucked away in a corner of the library I spotted this wonderful old spiral staircase.  Access is not allowed these days, but in my imagination I can see librarians of old clutching stacks of books negotiating these stairs, successfully I hope!

State Library of Victoria.

            This is half of the famous domed octagonal reading room of the State Library of Victoria.

Also in the same garden of yesterday's post was this little bit of stone work. All placed by hand, the darker river pebbles caught my eye, what a labour of love to place and cement in all those pebbles!
