Sunday Selections # 63

It's Sunday Selections time again!

Time to post photos that have been languishing in your files, waiting for their turn in the sun....

Brought to us by Kim, of Frog Ponds Rock fame, this is an excellent way to showcase photos you've taken but never shown anyone.
The rules are simple, post your photos under the Sunday Selections title, go to Frog Ponds Rock, leave your name and URL on the linky list, then leave Kim a comment.

It's not necessary to follow a theme with your photos, although I usually do.

This week, we're back with TREES. 

This branch is probably thirty or forty feet up in the air and stretches from the tree right across the road to almost touch the electricity wires strung from stobie pole to stobie pole.

the tree just goes up and up and up......

Clipped pencil pines. I love them used as a privacy fence. If I ever get the chance to own my own home, I'm having just such a fence.

Early morning sun peeking through a big liquid amber tree. I think. Could be some other kind of tree.

More a shrub than a tree, this is a wattle and I've included it specifically for Kath, who is currently facing her first winter in Geneva with her family and gets a little homesick for Australia.
Australia has many different types of wattles with varying shades of yellow and some of them are lightly scented. I like the lemon scented wattle.

Here's a close-up of these bright little puff-balls.


  1. Bonza photos. I especially like photos 4, 5, 6 :-).

  2. Windsmoke; thank you. I like wattles because they're a cheery burst of colour when most other things are dying down for winter or haven't yet begun their spring growth.

  3. This Sunday I've joined you in my usual twisted way...I dug out some long languishing pics from my 20 something thousand....

  4. Is it the Flinders Ranges wattle that's flowering at the moment? Gorgeous!!

  5. Living, loving beautiful trees. I love the smell of freshly cut wood but I also hate to see trees cut down. Interesting profile photo.

  6. Kath is currently facing Spring, not Winter.

    Pedant's Corner.

  7. Beautiful pictures! The pencil pine fence is a great idea, and I especially love the wattle. :-)

  8. Tempo; I'll have to hop on over and have a look.

    Red Nomad; I don't know one wattle from another. This one is just inside the fence of the Glenside Hospital grounds.

    Manzanita; I hate seeing trees get cut down too, they provide so much pleasure and necessary shade too.
    My profile photo is a coffee drinking dragon just like me. I drink coffee and was born in the year of the dragon.

    R.H. you're absolutely right. I'd been remembering the post she wrote about snow and forgot that time had moved on.

    Cassandra Louise; The pencil pines grow so tall and slim and they're such a deep green! I love the thought of a living fence. Wattles are just plain cheery no matter where they are or what time of year you see them.

  9. A pedant is always right.

    And paranoid.
