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.
This week I received a treat in the mail. The lovely Sandra Cox despite the sadness and worry in her own life sent me a book. One of her books. Flower Power spoke to my garden obsessed self. For a slim volume it contains a lot to absorb. Planting by colour, planting for sun/shade, the meaning of flowers, plants which are dangerous to animals, planting tips, aromatherapy, floroscopes... I can see me dipping into this gem often. Thank you Sandra.
Her very generous gift encouraged me to focus on the garden this week in Sunday Selections.
It is still very dry. Fires still burn. Dangerously so. Homes and lives continue to be lost. I weep and my heart aches. Just the same, this fire related image made me smile. I have showed you 'A Delicate Moment' by Suzie Bleach and Andy Townsend before.
The air quality is my city is still hazardous. Masks are in short supply. I think it says a lot about how her community values her that the statue was given a mask, and also that no-one has nicked it. The sculptors' home town was hit hard (and repeatedly) by recent fires so I suspect they would appreciate the image too.
