Welcome back to Sunday Selections.
Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
Today (yesterday) we're taking a walk from my home to the local shopping centre, because I'm out of ice cream and that just won't do. Also to buy the newspaper to read the Real Estate section, something I do every Saturday.
A new home foundation on the block down the street. Again, this will be two homes on one block, but instead of side by side, these will be one in front and one behind.
and protected by Termi Mesh, which is a great idea that I will use if I should ever be lucky enough to build a home.
winning one of these would help a lot.
daytime temperatures are still too warm, but nights are cool, so it's autumn here, and lillypilly trees are heavy with gorgeously coloured berries
the street trees, Chinese Elm? Chinese Tallow?
have bunches of papery bronze seed cases
which look like lanterns to me, so I call them Lantern Trees
some roses are still flowering
others have browned off
while some are already forming hips
some of the gum trees already have bunches of gumnuts
others continue to flower
even as their own seed pods (gumnuts) develop
Jacaranda flowers are long gone
replaced by seed pods, some still green, others browned and opened to release the seeds.
pomegranates shine within their greenery
leaves are yellowing
mid-morning sun shines through palm fronds
yet the moon is reluctant to leave, even at 10.15am
