Botanic Gardens, Herb Garden

These shadows in the Royal Botanic Gardens are cast by pots in the Herb Garden surrounding a memorial to actress Nellie Stewart, who was born in the nearby suburb of Woolloomooloo in 1858. I must admit I'd never heard of this actress before I saw this memorial but not completely surprising considering that she died in 1931. It made me think that people must have always been fascinated by celebrities, as they are today.


  1. This has given me ideas for my own little HG.

    People are fascinated by anything that takes them out of their own dull existence: even if tawdry.


Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave me a message. Jim.
