McDougall Street, Kirribilli, has a purple patch in
early November each year as the jacaranda trees bloom.
Under arrest and maybe soon behind bars:
a suspicious character is detained outside the prime

No, it's not South America, where these water vines belong,
but Lane Cove (in an area formerly called Osborne Park), just eight kilometres from the centre of Sydney city.
The vines contain plenty of water and are the traditional water source in
undeveloped areas of South America.
See them or get tangled up in them from tracks starting from Ronald Avenue

overlooking the Lane Cove River. One of the small suburb's
boundaries is Fig Tree Bridge.
