The Last of the Spring Blossoms .....

~ Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens ~

This pic was taken last month with just a touch of
the remaining spring blossoms intermingled with fine tracery of bare branches

Soon this vista will 
 be a mass of differing shades of green
and I will love it just as much

wild bird wednesday ......

royal spoonbill   ~

Birds in flight are an amazing sight - this cream winged spoonbill
had been fossicking along the shoreline of the Coorong Estuary
when it suddenly took flight
I was sitting waiting to spot avocets and stints
but was more than delighted to photograph this lovely bird
with it's wings outstretched

Twilight Time ......

~ Largs Bay Jetty ~

The loveliest time on a Summer day
is just after the sun has set
everything is soft and a kind of hush
settles over the world

Along the Railway Track ..........

~ a muddle of weeds and random field flowers  ~

While trying to get a better view from where to photograph
St Kilda Salt Lakes - I walked along the edge of this old railway track
and realised that the muddle of weeds and field flowers before me
had a kind-of beauty of there own

A Lily Reflected .....

Victoria Amazonica   ~

I love to capture this exotic lily which has a very short life-span
When she first opens she is beautiful but towards the end of her life
she falls into a bedraggled mess ! 
I have chosen to show her youthful hours
before the ravages of time commence to diminish her beauty

"Though we travel the world to find the beautiful
we must carry it with us or we find it not"
                                                                    Ralph Waldo Emerson

Almost Summer .....

It's a long time since I've seen the lovely shades
of aqua and dusky pink along our coastal horizon
Summer must be just around the corner !

Queen of the Lilies .....

~  Victoriana Amazonica   ~

I love this time of the year when lilies and lotus blooms
overtake blossoms in our lovely Adelaide Botanic Gardens

This lovely bloom has a life-span of only 48 hours
and has the most amazing lily-pads

At The Carrington ......

The Carrington - Katoomba, Blue Mountains   ~

enjoying tea and scones on the balcony of this wonderful historic hotel
steeped in history and elegance of a bygone era.

Originally built in 1882 it still remains as a place of accommodation
and fine dining in a country town, which in it's hey-day
was described as a nondescript little mining town

aged by time and the elements .......

This delicate camellia bloom aged and water-logged
had fallen onto the base of a tree trunk
Although there were bushes all around
covered in beautiful  fresh vibrant blooms - I loved this one
with the dappled sun alighting on it's rustic soft tones
