Sunday Selections # 223
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.
Andrew often joins in too.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I am taking you back to Nellie's Garden.
You might remember me mentioning it is right beside the Mitcham Railway Station.
a small section of the mural on the building you see as you get off the train, I showed the full mural a few weeks ago I think.
three different paths through the garden
this looks very much like it would have been the original station toilet, I don't know if it still is a toilet.
feathery golden fronds,
in amongst deeper greens and brighter colours.
pale pink hibiscus, there were two of these,
one on either side of this white one. This is the first white hibiscus I've ever seen.
I love the texture and colours of the bark on this tree
it leads up to a dead patch and I was wondering if perhaps that branch had been struck by lightning.
Higher up and off to the side this tree continues to grow and it quite tall and spreading.
heading out of Nellie's Garden towards the main station building is this huge white gum tree.
finally, here is a message for all mums out there:
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
