Sunday Selections # 270
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 it's floral.
We'll begin with several images of a profusely flowering white bouganvillea, the one I call the frilly wedding dress of flowers.
I'm tempted to find out if the white is available in miniature form, I'd like to plant one to grow up around my windmill.
frilly wedding dress, right?
this particular plant is huge and hangs over two sides of the fence, the house sits on a corner block.
one lonely oleander bloom, the last one left on the bush.If you enlarge this, you'll see yellow specks thickly clustered on other parts of the bush, these are a sap sucking bug similar to aphids.
a faded rose, dry now and papery to the touch.
not a flower and I don't know if this does flower, but it is thriving over on neighbour P's part of the garden.
all of the buds on this succulent are now open,
I featured this a few weeks ago, when the flowers were still buds.
pale blue plumbago is everywhere too, it's another climber (rambler?) that does very well in the dry heat.
