This water purification pond is in the Darebin Parklands, a nature reserve close to where I live in one of the inner suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. Some golden wattles are in bloom misled perhaps by our strange weather!

  1. What a lovely location.
    Thanks for joining the linkup at

  2. Such a tranquil place! I have unusual blooms, too. Some roses are still going strong. I noticed a couple of the many daffodils trying to bloom. Some azaleas think it's spring, too!

    I am so glad that you took the time to share your world at 'My Corner of the World' this week! Thanks!

  3. This is a wónderful nature reserve with the sea!! Great Photo!

  5. Using a pond for water purification is a great idea. Our local fish farm does something similar and we use a gravel and charcoal filter to strain our gray water before using it on our planters. - Margy
