The main shopping street is Latrobe Terrace, where many of the original homes have been converted into trendy boutiques, restaurants and gift shops. It's a fun place to spend an afternoon, and I took advantage, after a recent lunch time appointment in the neighbourhood, to wander along the top end of Latrobe Terrace.
|'Thousand Island Dressing' great for light fittings and costume jewellery.|

|I gave the credit card a bit of a work out here at 'Mood'. (lovely white Crepe myrtle on the right)|
There are also some great ideas for the garden to be gleaned from the beautiful shops and houses along the way.
|Here's a pretty combination of a tiny grevillea and flapjack plant Kalanchoe luciae|
|Pots of jade plant Crassula ovata at the entrance|
|Love this water feature with cockatoos.|
|A pretty entry to one of the renovated workers's cottages.|
|Fabulous mosaic lounge complete with rug.|
|Detail from the 'rug'.|
|Verandas - screened for privacy...|
|or open to watch the passing parade.|
|Love the cool colour combination of Plumbago auriculata and it looks like snail creeper Vigna caracalla|
