Thanks Emma (I think)

Emma Young (journalist, novelist and all-round depressingly talented person) read my post below and sent me this pic of a town square in Savannah, Georgia (USA)... "one of many in this relatively small town of just 140,000 people".

See what she's saying?

If a lil 'ol town like Savannah can have 22(!) public squares to this standard, why can't Perth have at least some?

Well, she didn't say this, I did, but the question remains doesn't it?

Admittedly, it's humid as hell in Savannah - you can poke a stick in the ground and it will grow - but c'mon Perth, WE CAN HAVE THIS TOO!  It requires a different approach, BUT IT CAN BE DONE.

Councillors of our fair city: please demand that your town/city start doing this.

Don't listen to those who howl "too hard". It's not. You just gotta know how.

The future is in your hands.
