Welcome back to Sunday Selections.
Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
here we go:
a photo of a page in a magazine, these cute little penguins are actually chocolate coated poached pears
I went out early to catch the dozen or so birds that are usually fluffed up sitting on this gutter, yesterday there were only three
raindrops on branches. I love raindrops on anything 😎
my garden, from the opposite end this time
this coprosma is doing so much better since I dug it up and trimmed the roots, then spread them out to grow.
here's a closeup of the leaves, they're quite small, about 2cm.
Bluebells are pushing up through the mulch now.
and I believe these are the daffodils I rescued from the front corner by the footpath, where people keep nipping off the blossoms, or yanking out whole plants. this is all that's left of the two dozen I eventually planted there, hoping they would spread into a large clump.
I used to think this clown (it's a money box) looked happy, now I think he looks creepy crazy.
my pigface is growing fast now, it had a blossom a while ago, which has since died, you can see the remains on the far right in the photo. Next to it is another flower head, yet unopened and another in the centre and a third left of centre. Not easy to spot.
I found this little sunflower vase half buried under the oleander when I was looking for Angel, rescued it and now it sits in my garden patch.
neighbour P has this pretty pink and grey thing in front of her balcony/porch.
here is a closeup of the flowers, pretty, yes?
someone has lost a pretty bracelet, it's small, but not child sized, probably one of the teens on her way to or from school.
the new house has scaffolding all around now as they work on putting on the roof,
the houses at the back of the block are also two storey.
all alone, and keeping an eye on me.
T's birdbath, almost hidden in the tall grasses.
right in front of this oleander, close up to the trunks, is the last place I saw Angel 😢
here is my favourite wind spinner, not seen much in summer because the trees are all leaved out. It doesn't spin much, not sure if it is in the wrong place or the cups are too small and just don't catch the wind.
