I usually run with a theme. We are still in lockdown. A little while ago I showed you images from the wattle tree in our garden. Its blooms are now finished. However on a rare outing last week (to buy birdseed) I noticed that a different variety of wattle was lining the highway near home. So I headed with my camera during a break in the rain last week. I stayed (mostly) dry and had a lovely walk, starting our street, walking to the highway and then looping back to our street again..
As I so often say - come walk with me. My usual obsessions are of course on display.
I really like this yellow succulent and will ask the owners (at a more reasonable hour) if I can have a cutting.
This was the only wattle blooming on my side of the highway.When we are not locked down this is quite a busy stretch of highway.
I said it had been raining. There were lots of quite big (and deep) puddles about.
I smiled at the rugged up dog and owner.
We are home again now. This is the first of our bottle brushes in bloom. In another week or so the bush will be ablaze. And then I have a white one to look forward to.
Most of our red tulips are just about finished. They are being replaced by yellow ones. Most of the yellow daffodils and jonquils are finished. They are being replaced by white ones - some of which were flattened by the rain. So I had to bring them inside. Goodness how I suffer. I have lilac about to come out, waterfalls of banskia roses in bud, bluebells, iris, calla lilies and more tulips emerging. This is being a bountiful spring.
I hope your week is packed with colour and joy.
