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 have a small floral selection, beginning with freesias:
this is a plant I have never seen before, strappy leaves, flower stems with conical centres surrounded by buds and open star shaped blue/purple flowers.
they're in a yard just down the street from me, there used to be a fence hiding them, but that fence blew down in the same wind that brought us the blackout several weeks ago.
if anyone can tell me what these are I'll be grateful; then I can go to a nursery and ask about buying some.
the woolly bear caterpillars are back! They've decimated my dusty millers, before I photographed these two, I picked off another dozen and threw them onto the driveway. Many of the aeoniums also have big chunks eaten from the leaves.
the wattles are beginning to bloom too. I didn't have my camera with me when I noticed them, so I dug out these few photos from a few years ago.
this one, same tree as above, is lemon scented and I love walking past it on a warmish day when the bees are buzzing in it.
this one, with it's longer stems of fluffy blossoms, is by the bus stop, it began flowering last week, but this is another older photo. Also scented, but not as strongly as the other one. it does get just as many bees though.
so it's still cold here, especially overnight and in the mornings, yesterday we had early morning fog that held back several planes from taking off, but spring is definitely on the way.
