Flowers and Bees



The Lemon and more

Still having a play with my new light box. This photo was for a photo challenge, called Black and Yellow. I’m not normally a big fan of posed photography, but it’s always good to have a play and experiment with new things.DSCN4771DSCN4776DSCN3026FSCN7794

Flowers & a cat

I picked some beautiful Camellia’s & Lavender from my Mum’s garden the other day, so I thought I would photograph their beauty and then one of my cats “Hardy” decided to start posing near the flowers for me, of course I could resist to snap a few extra Cat & flower photos.DSCN2491DSCN2496DSCN2521DSCN2523

Wattle & More

We have many glorious plants/bushes & trees here in Australia, some of course only flowering at certain times of the year. Here are just a couple that have been in flower just recently. (TheĀ Golden Wattle is one of my favourites)DSCN1333DSCN1337DSCN1339DSCN1350DSCN1329

Lisianthus (My Favourite Flower)

Often known as a “poor man’s rose”, the lisianthus is a truly beautiful flower for cutting and for garden appeal. As an annual, lisianthus blooms just one season, although some gardeners in very warm climates have had success in coaxing annuals to bloom again. Experiment, if you live in a warm area, and you may get several seasons of beautiful blooms!
Lisianthus comes in a wide variety of colours, although purple, pink and white are the most common. Stunning varieties which include colour borders are readily available; these make striking bouquets or focal points for your garden. This compact flower (plants range from 15 to 70 centimetres) looks very much like a rose, although some varieties are distinctly different. Leaves are elongated, somewhat resembling those of a tulip.dscn8973dscn8979dscn8983dscn8984dscn8992dscn8985
