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.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week we are still in gardens, but not mine.
one week later and the little bush was almost covered in tiny stars.
My own bush here is yet to flower :(
it does have buds this year, so I'm hopeful :)
in a different garden, there are mushrooms growing in the dead space under a giant buddleia
several clumps of them, and in the lawn there too.
Here on my side of town, there are also lawns I see on my way to and from bus stops, that have groups or long lines of mushrooms growing in them.
Out of the gardens now,
Have you ever really looked closely at autumn leaves?
On the trees, they're fabulous shades of reds, golds, russets, but on the ground, piled against fences and drifting along gutters, do you notice them?
they're not just brown piles of potential mulch.
they are brown and red,
or brown and tawny gold.
this one which seems mostly red,
is red and gold.
there are speckled ones,
those who think of autumn as the dull season just need to take the blinkers off.
** I must have taken two dozen shots of this leaf to get just one where the green stripe showed clearly enough and the leaf wasn't blurred. Even this shot doesn't show the true colour, the back end, near the stem is shades of yellow red and green.
