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. Last week I reveled in Winter. This week it is Spring on display. All of these shots are taken from our garden and there is more coming out each day. The vandal birds are also at work, and my pump action water pistol lives loaded and ready beside the front door.
Jazz comes outside with me for half an hour or so in the early morning. I was not grateful when he belly-bombed this shot. The next shot shows a ginger interloper who visits the garden quite regularly. Jazz is unimpressed.
The first of our tulips to flower. Over the coming weeks I hope to see a lot more.
Yes I know I have inflicted rather a lot of photos on you. Again. I have discovered that if I wander the garden with a camera I see beauty - instead of the work which needs to be done.
And as an aside. Australia's floral emblem is the Golden Wattle. September 1st is Wattle Day. We currently celebrate Australia Day on January 26th. Our first people refer to that date as Invasion Day, and there is a growing push to change the date. I would love to see Australia Day moved to Wattle Day, in the interests of unity and hope for the future.
I hope your week is blooming lovely.
