Crafty grannies cover Scarness trees with colour

THEY'VE struck again!

The Graffiti Grannies of Hervey Bay have covered trees along the esplanade with colourful quilts as part of the Hervey Bay Whale Festival.

These "sensible rebels" have spent months crocheting blankets to cover eight big fig trees growing along Hervey Bay's Charlton Esplanade in Scarness.

Organiser Josie Street (pictured) said the art intrigued all who walked by.

"It just makes you feel so good to see people coming along and asking questions about it and taking photos," Josie said.

"We call it removable graffiti."

Quilts used in the display are donated to the Hervey Bay Animal Refuge.

The display will stay up for the next two weeks.
