Some of these photos were taken whilst I was on holiday in the UK, ( I was using a different camera) I was staying in a beautiful rural area named “Laverton” while taking glorious country walks I would come across these beautiful cow’s every day & they would come up to the fence to say hello. The bull was also very friendly & very noisy. I can’t help but see only sadness in these cows eyes.
Last night we had quite an amazing sky (followed by an also amazing thunder & lightning storm) Around 6.30pm I walked outside to see these stunning clouds, so of course I had to get my camera and try to capture a couple of photos. The colour and formation was amazing.
Our local park was flooded the other day, due to heavy rain, it is quite unusual for Western Australia at this time of year. So instead of running around on the grass, you just have to paddle around in the water & have fun.
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.
