Sunday Selections # 248
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 we're taking a short walk through the gardens surrounding the flats here.
so is Angel
maybe if I ignore her, she'll go away
aren't you ever going to put that camera away?
guess I'll go inside and take a nap then.
the scent from this
daphne is just heavenly.
A little overpowering for those of us with hayfever, but there is only one of these and although it's a large bush, the scent doesn't travel far.
one of my echeverias has a flower stem with several buds.
the enormous lemon scented wattle by the front of the driveway is flowering profusely
marigolds. Since taking this photo, all of those unopened buds have bloomed and the display is lovely against the dark aeonium in the same pot.
the pelargonium has flowered again, for a while I thought this plant was going to die
if you look closely you will see a baby grasshopper; his brother is there too but just disappearing under a petal
there are roses
everywhere, as you will see
when we walk around the block next week.
going back inside I noticed the scented wax in my burner had dried into an unusual pattern
looks like a pendant pearl necklace fell into the wax which then dried over it.
See you next week, same time, same place.
