I think this is a pomegranate.
There seem to be cranes everywhere in Sydney - I had to remind myself a few times that I was not back in Japan!
He's there...look closely :)
In case you've been wondering where I've got to, I've been in Sydney for a week, having a very nice break. My husband was at a conference up there so I decided to hitch a ride and have a wander around Sydney. I had some plans in mind - things to see, places to visit - but the best things I found were the places I hadn't planned on.
The Chinese Garden of Friendship was certainly one of them
(http://www.darlingharbour.com/sydney-Things_To_Do-Chinese_Garden.htm) Designed in the traditional sparse yet rich Chinese style, they are so very peaceful. I thoroughly enjoyed stepping off the busy paths of the Darling Harbour area and quietly pottering through the various beautiful landscapes, past the ponds full of gaping carps (hard to photograph - I think I was distracted by all those opening and closing mouths!) and into the lovely open-air teahouse where I sipped jasmine tea and watched the lizards pacing self-importantly to and fro.
