Buruwan Park

Tyres, Buruwan Pk
After  a morning of Bushcare weeding at Cadigal Reserve (with bonus bush turkey sighting). 

Reflected on the turkey in a new light following Wesley Enoch's suggestion that totems may help us connect with country.

Heading back home I shed a tear at Buruwan Park a bushcare site for 20 years before Westconnex destroyed it.
