Peppermint Grove – of Satan

A perfect essence of The Worst of Perth by Orbea. I believe it’s the first Peppermint Grove Worst too. (Later found to be Mosman Park) It’s even got the classic toilet bowl planter. Multi million dollar views for these cactus familiars.

    I kind of like it. It’s whimsical. Very un-peppy la grove.
    Not worst for mine.

    With a bit of extra work, that nose that looks like balls on the 3rd picture could easily have become penis graffiti – opportunity lost.

    Oh my God, it’s like someone transplanted my mother’s garden from her old house in Victoria into a suburb of Perth! She had rusty old washing machine tubs and battered pots growing all manner of cacti, skeletal roses and geraniums in a dry dusty yard before she moved.

    Not a worst. I love the whimsy mixed with the dry desolation of the yard.

    vanished worst – Prix D’Amour is was around the corner.

    I like how the tag for the suburb is “pepermint grove” – so this won’t turn up when potential buyers are sussing out the hood on the internet?

    So that’s where my old wicker chair ended up. Claremont’s trash is Peppy Grove’s treasure.

    They saved their favourite items from the recently demolished original house on this site. Exotic plants, outdoor setting and w/c pan will be incorporated ironically in the gleaming home to come.

    My takeaway from this is that Peppermint Grove is the Scarsdale of Perth. With a few more scars and no dale.
