Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to TheElephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Kath and Andrew often join in as well, although Kath has been quite busy lately and unable to join us. :(
There are several other participants now though:
Jackie K at WorkingThrough It
Gillie at The View From Here
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I have some photos of the roses I saw while walking around North Adelaide.
Adelaide really is a good spot for them.
a delicate pink
I liked this one
a little overblown but a lovely colour
another delicate pink. The bud below is darker edged while the bloom immediately behind has faded to white. I like bushes that do this shade and fade.
a red one!
another of the delicate pinks. This colour was very popular in the street I was walking along.
and again, the delicate pink.
When it comes to roses, I think I prefer the other suburbs, they have a far greater colour range.
the next two aren't roses, but I love the bright yellow flowers.
no idea what they are, the flowers remind me of Lantana. This is probably a bush variety, the one I remember from childhood is a creeper and a noxious weed here in Australia because it just takes over everything.
several bushes in a row make a lovely bright hedge, don't you agree?
