Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
Huge thanks to Cie who gave me this wonderful Sunday Selections image.
The meme was then continued by River at Drifting through life. Sadly she has now stepped aside (though she will join us some weeks), and I have accepted the mantle.
The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent. Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to me. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.
I usually run with a theme. We have had some grey days. Some windy days. Some chilly days. Sadly the predicted rain hasn't really happened. A few splats and no more (incontinent pigeon rain).
On a grey, chilly and windy day last week we headed (I may have mentioned that I am a creature of habit) to our National Arboretum for their annual Warm Trees display.
The stated objective for this bit of fun is to get people to go to the Arboretum in the chillier months. It was school holidays while we were there, and there were plenty of people (albeit mostly in the warmth of the visitors centre).
Settle back with a cuppa of your choice and enjoy the fun with us.
Starting off in the Himalayan Cedar Forest.
The theme for this year is tulips and bicycles. Which we spotted early.
This tree was rugged up in the sort of knitting I could do.
As always the views were a joy.
I really liked the sunshades - even if there wasn't any sun to shade from.
While people decorated a lot of trees, no-one had the courage to rug up the cactus.
The giant bicycle on the hillside - which didn't look knitted to me.
Of course I had to stop off at Richard Moffat's Nest - and admire the railing on the nearby look out too.
That sign is totally truthful. It is a steep hill. We often see cyclists struggling up it (or sailing down) but not that day. Instead we followed a car which rode its brakes the whole way down.
If you have lasted this long through the myriad of photos, many thanks. Minimalism comes hard to me.
