Discoveries in the Garden

This world in which we live has so much to find and discover….I saw so many things when I had a wander a while ago and then having new discoveries at the beach so last weekend was no different.

From the small to the colourful and the things of everyday life as I see then through the lens of my camera, there is always something amazing.

Quite often things can be seen while having a cup of tea in the garden

Image

Which can be quite relaxing as long as the flies don’t decide to visit….and take a bite!!! You can just see him just starting to dig in….

Image

Other insects are not so up close and personal but can still be watching your every move…

Image

Cicadas are the sounds of Summer in the bush. Used to love finding the different types as a kid. I didn’t realise that Cicadas were so hairy

Image

Their wings are so fine

Image

Cicadas have to keep a watch out for birds but this little bloke is about as big as a Cicada

Image

The spring flowers are still about…..the pansys have been flowering for such a long time

Image

and some of the hippeastrums are just starting like this stunning white and pink one

Image

This is the first time I have seen a vine flower with such an interesting flower

Image

The Crinums always have a fine display

Image

The Silk Tree is flowering as well…..such a pretty flower but it was high up in the tree

Image

As for being watched…..this tiny spider in the Ginger flower. Last time he was in the yellow flower in the Wandering on the Weekend blog

Image

I love the mixture of colours and textures that flowers bring to a garden

Image

And quite often, at this time of year, the flowers attract butterflies…..this Orchard Butterfly was making sure I didn’t get too close

Image

Oh well…….the sun is about to set so I better be off…..hope you have enjoyed a walk around my besties garden again
