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 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 my theme is spring.
Spring has Sprung downunder, so I took my camera for a walk around the gardens here this morning, earlyish.
Come walk with me.
I believe these are crocus, (I could be wrong), the flowers are similar to freesia but the foliage is very different.
a sea of white daisies
pots of echeveria, these are quite large pots yet there is still room to walk down the path. I must be the only one with a narrow path..... :(
someone's jade is flowering well before mine.
peppermint geranium, the scent is quite delicate and released when the leaves are crushed.
here's a close-up of those flowers.
white ivy-leafed geranium, so called because>>
the leaves look like ivy and the plant will climb if given a support.
there is one pink hawthorn bush, and across the road>>
a mass of white. Six bushes at least. A whole hedge.
white ranunculus. WHITE!
look at those dreamy, creamy ruffles. *sigh* I have to get some of these.
the rose bed has completely and thickly leafed out, buds are forming.
it was early enough that dewdrops and a thin layer of frost was still visible. Yes, frost. September mornings are still chilly and clear night skies bring frost.
enlarging will help you see the dewdrops better.
my own patch is quite colourful now too, in spite of the bare patches. Eventually the bulbs will multiply and the succulents will spread.
gorgeous purple wisteria, the scent on this is so strong right now, it will fade soon, then the flowers will be replaced by the leaves.
on the wisteria support frame is a tiny, tiny birdhouse, about 30cm tall.
