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.
Random stuff today, mostly plants taken as I walked around the neighbourhood , some are of my own garden.
the new house across the road is getting a second story
with plenty of space either side for a balcony maybe
Angel watching people walk past, this photo is from the Monday he disappeared 😢
autumn colour in my street
I meant to photograph this tree while it was leafier and so gorgeous, but forgot to take the camera and the wind got to it before I did.
look at that leaf shape, like butterfly wings,
and that buttery gold against the blue sky is just heavenly. I believe it is a Gingko tree.
across from the Gingko is a stand of fan palms
when the leaves dry out they shred themselves into these pretty tendrils.
I don't know what these things are hanging off a different palm, flowers? seed pods? but they're pretty.
this is a sneaky photo, she doesn't know I took it. She's a neighbour and every day walks to the bus stop and sits for a while before coming home. Sometimes she goes all the way to the shops. She is 80+
interesting rings on this palm trunk, spaced evenly apart, they show where fronds were as the palm grew.
pretty bronze tinged new growth
which will eventually become green. I like the heart shape of these.
Jacarandas are forming their new seed pods.
this is what the lamps look like in the supermarket parking lot
have you ever seen a rose this snowy white?
and one more of autumn coloured leaves
