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 we're walking around the block. I promised you roses, but there's other stuff too....
and this honeysuckle, my favourite of all the climbers. This is spread for about three metres along someone's front fence. I stood there for quite a while just taking in the scent.
a small leafed kalanchoe in full flower in a distant corner of a garden.
mandarins hanging like Christmas decorations.
bright and cheery nasturtiums.
I like this waterfall of pink geraniums spilling over a fence.
here's a close up of the flowers.
I think this is known as Queen Anne's Lace, standing about 75cm high.
and now for the roses:
pink blushed whites.
how pretty is this?
climbing over garden arches,
spilling over fences.
here's a close up. Love this colour!
I love these smaller pink singles.
and sunny centered reds.
another favourite colour, pink blushed pale yellow.
pinks towering over a fence taller than me,
whites too, same fence a bit further along.
and then I saw this urn on a pedestal and immediately decided I should have one. Next year.
I'll probably put the same plants in it too. And surround the base with frilly echeverias.
