"Not All Is Lost" is @andrewfrazerdesigns is one of our newest murals in Frankston City Centre as part of @thebigpicturefest in March.

Andrew Frazer is a multidisciplinary artist from Gelorup, Western Australia. He says this piece is an โ€œode to what was and a celebration of whatโ€™s to comeโ€ and also market in time as we are in the midst of global impacts of COVID-19. He feels that as the world is collectively slowing down, pieces like this give the time to slow down, pause, reflect, and connect.

You can find this piece on Wells Lane, Frankston --->https://www.visitfrankston.com/andrew-frazer

Looks can be deceiving!๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ„

Have you noticed a rise in fungi in parks, gardens and nature strips on your local walks lately?
Due to a higher average rainfall in April, there has been growth of different types of mushrooms, like the Amanita Muscaria (red and white mushroom, pictured).๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ„

FACT: despite being visually appealing and having a distinctive appearance the mushroom Amanita Muscaria is not for touching or eating.

These are extremely toxic to humans and pets, so keep your distance and stay away!โš ๏ธโš ๏ธ

These few have been spotted in Langwarrin and on the Peninsula Link Trail.๐ŸŽ‹๐ŸŽ‹
