Sunday Selections # 188
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 The Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Kath and Andrew often join in.
There are a couple of other participants too:
Jackie K at Working Through It
Gillie at The View from Here
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I'm continuing with some photos of my garden.
I managed to capture the drops after watering.
the first to fully open.
I was hoping this one would be a different colour.
the bluebells are looking strong, but no sign of flowers yet.
out in the garden the coprosmas have settled in well and begun to grow.
my very first daffodil.
the very first grape hyacinth has since been joined by at least a dozen more.
same with the starflowers, this pot now has plenty of stars in it.
the newer photos must be still in the camera.
out in the garden again, a tiny grevillea flower, no more than an inch long.
and the tiny bush has many more buds waiting to open.
I thought I'd left it too late to plant hollyhock seeds, but they have all come up and will eventually be as tall as me.
the stocks have come up too, which really surprised me.
and the marigolds which were no surprise at all, these things will grow anywhere anytime.
the kangaroo paws have settled in well and started to bush up nicely.
and there are some new additions>>>
meet Roscoe the dog,
Rosie the cat,
and Harry and Henry, the roosters. They were going to be Harriet and Henrietta, but they're roosters not hens, so Harry and Henry it is.
the frogs have found new homes up on the porch,
in the shade from the potplants.
