Sunday Selections # 240
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 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 have:
winter garden photos.
birch branches I believe, this one looks better in real life
another bare tree
no bare branches here, the white tree you see is spring blossom covered.
this white cedar tree is close to my home and hangs over a significant amount of the driveway.
it is covered in small yellow berries right now.
when the leaves begin, the berries will fall, making a heck of a mess and endangering all who walk there. It's so easy to slip on them, I always take the long way around, going by road instead of through the driveway.
someone's kangaroo paws are way ahead of mine
here's a paw, close up.
gorgeous purple pea flowers on someone's polygala shrub.
the sea of green is agapanthus, behind a lovely stand of kniphofia, (red hot pokers)
here's one close up, they come in brilliant red too.
this is the whole bed, there's another smaller bed on the other side of the path.
something purple near one of 'my' bus stops. I've heard it called 'creeping moses' and 'moses in a basket', but I don't know what it is.
this is what the tiny flowers look like. Like any succulent, pieces broken off and planted will grow. Did I take a piece? You betcha.
this bright green beauty is Euphorbia, also called Spurge.
looking down into one of the flower heads.
before the flower heads appeared, I broke off two tiny tip cuttings, about two inches long. I have them in a pot and they have tiny new growth at the tip. I'll plant them out in larger pots when the weather warms and keep them in the shade for a year.
purple statice growing in the gardens here.
watsonia blossom, still in bud, it should be open next week and I'll get another photo then. These are bulbs and I might just dig up a couple and bring them home. They clump and spread, so I'll keep them in a large pot. These are in my daughter's garden.
pale yellow wattle. You'll notice they're not the usual round golden balls of wattle and the scent is delicate and sweet. I'll get photos of the darker wattles as I find them, I may have to walk a while.....
