Amidst
modern expansion
of mankind’s short-sightedness
exists an oasis
of natural
beauty.

Sheltered by trees
that camouflage
nature’s resiliency.

Once neglected,
occupied by vagrants.
Dedicated visionaries
usher in new renaissance.

Pastel colours
enrich a vibrant canvas.

The Grove

Folk art decor
amongst urban squalor.

Natural splendour
void of industrial intervention.
Community spirit
raising environmental awareness.

Lush scenery
of abundant
artistic potential.

Peaceful
and serene
against imposing development.
Mother Nature’s beauty
shielded from
destruction.
