Take a look at the P.L. Travers Monument in Australia - there's a woman with an umbrella!

One of my favorite songs is Feed the Birds! And a Spoonful of Sugar! Our local high school did this show a few years ago and it was fantastic!

I Love Mary Poppins! I read the book years ago and the original movie is one of my all time favorites!!!!! I also really enjoyed Saving Mr. Banks. I was originally skeptical about the new movie until I saw some of the trailers...so now I think I will see it!
