Because I wasn’t at home all day today, I didn’t have a chance to make a snazzy new post for you all – so instead here is a gallery of all my flowery pictures from the past! Hooraaaaaaaaaaay 🙂 Have a bloomin’ amazing day – see what I did there? Punny indeed.
These flowers at Mundaring Weir (Western Australia) were so pretty I had to take a photo – in fact I had to take several! This one was originally so faded in term of colour that I took the liberty of editing what were pink flowers into orange ones.
A small park in the Melbourne CBD had a pond full of lily pads, with just the one lily amongst all that green!
Yellow is such a bright colour that I had to take a little picture of these odd little wildflowers at Kings Park.
These flowers were at the end of their bloom at the Kings Park wildflower festival – and due to lighting on the day came up so technicolour bright on my camera that I chose to remove the colours to avoid any offense to people’s eyes. The result is a little more dramatic than your average patch of flowers – but I liked it so I hope other people might too! 🙂
I took this photo in King’s Park during the wildflower festival and due to me accidentally using the wrong settings on my camera, something went all funky with the lighting so I decided to go a little arthouse and muck around with colours. ANYWAAAAAY, whatever I did on the day, the end result reminds me very much of fireworks!
Wildflowers – will I ever get sick of them? Nope. Will anyone following this blog get sick of them? I hope not, ‘cos I’m going to keep posting them! Hooray for Kings Park and its botanical glory. ;D
A Parisian street with flowers added to the bargain made this view a wonderful, if unexpected, view.
One of my favourite creatures out there – the good-lookin’ but also slightly dangerous honeybee. We have a huge Wisteria tree out the front of our house and I snapped this one during the spring months when the tree blooms best! I always love the look of the house with the flowers cascading over the front door.
WILDFLOWER WEDNESDAYS: Another snap from the Kings Park wildflower festival – a little more eclectic choice of flowers this time! I adore the blue ones – so vibrant! I wore a ball dress that was the same colour a few years back and it made me feel a bit like a pretty flower 🙂
I love these flowers; they grew in our front yard for a long and lovely time; however have since been removed to make room for necessary paving. A shame, but at least I got some lovely photos of them before the time of beauty was over 😛
You know the saying “Life’s too short to stop and smell the roses?” That’s wrong. It’s too short NOT to stop and smell the roses – I love roses. I also love the word ‘Roses’….ROSES. Anyway, that’s enough of that.
On a family trip to Albany (Western Australia) we stayed next to Lake Seppings, which has a relaxing walking trail around it. On the first day Mum, Dad and I went on said trail – and discovered a section of it that was overflowing with beautiful blooming nasturtiums which were attracting almost supernatural numbers of white butterflies. It really was like walking in a romantic painting – all soft light and quiet rustling leaves. It is my favourite visual experience to date; unfortunately you can’t capture exactly how charming it was, but here’s my best attempt from the day!
Another picture of pink flowers? HOW ORIGINAL I AM. This shot is another from Mundaring Weir (Western Australia) and although it’s a bit fuzzy, my love for these colours outweighs my worry about pixelation.
I have already posted a few of my photos from this year’s King’s Park Wildflower festival but I keep seeing more that turned out rather prettily and I can’t help myself. HERE, INTERNET, HAVE SOME MORE FLOWERS! On a side-note: we have these everlastings in our front garden now, which makes me rather happy 🙂 ❤
Way back when, my back-yard had this native tree that produced astoundingly purple blooms – I just found this photo I took in said yesteryear on my computer. I often get these nice surprises when I go through the huge number of old files on my expansion drive; Australia occasionally has some colours in the landscape other than orange and blue! 😛
Kings Park (Western Australia) has a wildflower festival every year and I love it. I went with my youngest brother and father this year and caught everything at the height of spring. I tried so many times to get a shot like this but the bees were all rather inconsiderate and flew away – this one shot made it all worthwhile!
Some lovely flowers at Lesmurdie Falls (Western Australia). They were so bright in person, but the glare freaked my camera out – hence I used some significant colour editing to bring it back! Not 100% realistic, but pretty is always my goal ❤
I have a strange fascination with insect photography – my Dad doesn’t understand, but I will soldier on with my interest! (#rebellion). This was another Lesmurdie Falls (W.A) shot – it seems a flowering grass tree was the place to be!
I’m a real sucker for a pretty flower; here in Australia you don’t see many so when I do, I take so many photos I don’t know where to display them…OH WAIT, I HAVE THIS BLOG! HUZZAH. The Kings Park wildflower festival is a must see if ever you’re in town September-time!
These flowers at Lesmurdie Falls (Western Australia) were so much like butterflies I had to take a photo! My camera was set to an odd lighting filter and this is exactly as it turned out – a happy accident if ever there was one 🙂
