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.
love-in-the-mist is blooming in the garden next door, I don't remember its other name
the Silky Oak across the road is gloriously golden
Star Jasmine is everywhere
I like these conical hanging baskets,
one of which has three budgies in it, ornamental of course
can you see the white cones on this tree? I believe it is a spruce, but I'm happy to be corrected
is that better? They look like Christmas ornaments don't they? They'll soon turn a lovely golden brown.
the oleander is covered in blossoms and bees
I think this is Echium, but can't be sure,
it usually has the cones full of these tiny blue flowers which are more purple in reality, I must have missed the flowering time
daisies are popping up everywhere
acanthus too, (bear claw, oyster plant)
I like the deeply lobed leaves which are usually a much darker shade of green
my bulb stems are finally looking like straw, it's time to cut them back, these were the Ixias.
across the road, the house at the front of the block is finished
with even the front yard landscaped, I believe the owners have taken possession, so there will be no more photos of this
the two houses at the back of the block still have a way to go.
