A warning… this is going to be another non-crochet post!
But I do have a lovely silky scarf that’s almost finished – it’s just awaiting the final touches of hand stitching on some very cute buttons. Yes, buttons! I know it sounds a little odd for a scarf but don’t judge before you see it – I think it’s quite the cutie.
In the meantime I’ve been enjoying my lovely long walks through the gardens, and been in awe of the ever changing Mother Nature.
It wasn’t that long ago that I was blown away by the incredible colours of Autumn. Now it’s officially winter most of colours have gone, but that has revealed the beauty of texture. With so many trees bare of leaves their towering trunks shine with their own beauty. The beauty of texture. Underrated sometimes. Overlooked often. But not today… and so began the theme of my photo shoot…yep, you guessed it…texture. Plus a couple of very sweet flowers, and some even sweeter birdies! Not sure of the name of the yellow breasted one, but he was a mighty flighty little number! Unlike the Kookaburra, who sat wisely on his perch, not fussed in the slightest by the strange creature below snapping a million shots of him whilst making strange little kissing noises. Cute…very cute.
Not only do these pink flowers look delicious, they smell delicious too! Sweet perfume envelopes you as walk by…slowly…breathing deeply… in appreciation!
Love love love Camelias!
As I said, love love love Camelias!
Sitting pretty with natures pink carpet.
Texture and still reflections
How can you walk by this gorgeous carpet of ginkgo biloba leaves?
A couple of dew drops still remaining even though it was afternoon… protected in the shade of this stunning tree, that despite the carpet of yellow underneath – still has many leaves to shed…
Rhododendrons about to pop!
Even the clouds looked particularly fluffy today.
Oh how I love a bit of mossy green rock work!
Do my spots look big in this?
Tell me he doesn’t look like a little sweety!
This little Kooky thinks he’s well camouflaged hidden amongst the grey branches…
But I spotted him.
Pudgy little ball of cute fluff!
Ah Mother Nature, so beautiful, peaceful and inspiring.
Hope you feel inspired to enjoy a little of Mother Natures beauty…
