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 The Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I've been searching my old files again and found you a few very lovely flowers.
All you Australians will recognise them, all you Northern Hemisphere people can have a taste of the prettiness that will soon be coming your way as the snows continue to melt.
Of course your flowers might not be the same as ours, but there will be colours and greenery.
this one is a grevillea, the next few photos are also grevilleas, but different types and colours.
the only purple grevillea I have ever seen.

these oxalis have closed themselves against the rain, they're quite pretty when open, but are considered a weed and most people get rid of them one way or another. I call them sour-sobs, others say sour-sops and I'm sure there are other names for them.
a single wattle blossom, this tiny puff ball was about a half centimetre across. Now that I'm looking at it, I recall the buds in the first photo were on this very same bush.
finally, a wax flower.
I hope you've enjoyed this little trip through spring 2010.
