Flowers around here

Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge February: Close Up or Macro

How I came about these selections. I download all my photos into a misc folder by date order. This morning I randomly picked a sub-folder date 30August 2020 (yes I am that behind in sorting photos) which luckily had the following photos from around my place.

The fruit from an Ink Plant, an introduced exotic plant from tropical America, and yes they did make ink from this plant

An Erect Guinea flower, 12 to24mm across, grows well on my place

A Yamba Sunshine Grevillea flower in my garden

So many flowers on the Lomandra Multiflora gives a tiny Stingless Native Bee lots of choices

Called an Australian Bluebell or Wahlenbergia sp, I find these little flowers all over my property

I think this is a Hovea of some species

Now and before

I’ve sorting photos I am still in the mid 2020’s. Can only do a few days at a time. Some of the date folders, (all my photos when I download go in to a misc folder), have a few photos and some days of discovery have over one hundred photos.

Australian Green Tree Frogs are the happiest looking frogs. This photo is from 28 Sept 2020

It’s the cats whiskers – again

After the response to my Mid-Week Monochrome post yesterday, I thought I would show you what a Cat’s Whiskers flower looks like in colour.

This is the monochrome version as posted
