colour in the bush

 this week I have been looking closely at new colours.  the landscape is greening up with the onset of Spring,  this tiny yellow fungi is so bright and delicate.

the early morning reflection of the blue sky in the water and the faint wave of blur coming across the clarity.

the wattles are in full bloom with pea flowers and the first native orchids are appearing.  after the grey of winter it is very refreshing.

Dear T ~ how I miss *wattles*! Factoid: "Commonly known as Wattle, Acacia is the largest genus of vascular plants in Australia." These grew profusely well down in California (where I lived an age ago) and I was very fond of them. Such cheery color at an otherwise not so bright time. They are not so hardy here in the Pacific northwest....sigh. Happy Spring, my friend!

Hi T, you're back! :) I've checked in here off and on and I'm happy you're back in your heaven on earth... We're moving into fall here. The light is slanting ever more steeply and the vegetation is slowing down. Maybe I'll pick up some knitting? ;)

Thanks Annette, and yes its very peaceful and I love it.

Reflection in the water always seems to have a delicate look Els, I like it when a ripple goes across the surface distorting the reflection.

Hi Maria, yes I have been away for a few months, the break was really good for me. We have opposite seasons don't we.

The orchids are not so good yet, there are a few waxlips about but nothing else much yet.
