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.


  2. The Legend 101 says:

    How about renaming it Prickly Grove.


  3. Shazza says:

    A magnificent not worst.


  4. vegan says:

    not worst at all. quite whimsical.

    It’s the empty chairs that really do it for me. Awesome.


  6. Shazza says:

    I love the thought this really bugs the neighbours.

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


  8. Lucky Star says:

    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.

    Adjacent to a true Perth now
    vanished worst – Prix D’Amour is was around the corner.


  10. RubyRuby says:

    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?

    Not one cockandballs…………..!!!!


  12. B.T. says:

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


  13. Hovean says:

    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.


  14. Bartender's skills with a Manhatten says:

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