I shot this succulent in Mum’s garden. As you know, I love shooting anything textural and this has structure as well which is even better! I love the furry texture of these fronds. I think the colour pattern is accentuated by the black & white. Only two more to go, I’d better look for something special in the next two days!
No, not that kind of weed! It’s just a grass weed, something which we have thousands of around here.
There’s just something about the soft whiteness of a magnolia bud. It oozes purity to me, although the perfect creamy whiteness doesn’t usually last more than a day once the bud opens up. This bud is from the Magnolia little gem in our front garden.
This eucalyptus tree in our front garden is just filled with buds waiting to burst into bloom. I captured some part-burst yesterday afternoon. They are perfectly, symmetrically packed into each bud. Oh, to have a macro lens to get up close to these little gems…
I love the tones in this blue agapanthus flower, simple but striking.
I am not by any means a great nature photographer – I think I will leave that to the experts as I just don’t have the patience. With that said, I am pretty happy with my photo for today. I was out shooting our passionfruit flowers when this little guy buzzed past & settled on the lemon tree. I love the little sparks of blue down his back!
Another Spring photo with our crabapple tree in the front yard in blossom. John thought it was dead!!
We have 5 bottlebrush trees in the corner of our house yard, and at the moment they are absolutely stunning in full bloom. And the bees just adore them as well! You can hear them buzzing around from afar, so I was very brave (I am allergic to their sting!) and got close enough for a snap. I know it’s not perfect, but I’m happy with it nevertheless!
Up the paddock near our chook dome, the dandelions are out in force and I couldn’t resist shooting those fluffy white tops!
Another image from my garden. Spring is such a gorgeous time of year!
