Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Nature (spring)

 If you truly love Nature, you will find beauty everywhere. ~Vincent Van Gogh

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge has Nature as the theme for this week.


We’ve had the most beautiful weather over the weekend, so warm and summery all of a sudden!  Last week we were cold with our wood fires still burning and this week we are all feeling the heat – that’s nature for you! Today it was 31 degrees celcius which is absurd for this time of the year.  Daylight Saving started here over the weekend so we have had to adjust all our clocks too.


Despite having the reputation of being a non-gardener, I have been busy lately with planting pots and hanging baskets of colourful little things.  These are pictures of one of my new favourites.  It’s a type of protea – it’s very pretty don’t you think? I like the soft colours and the shape of the flower. I love nature!

I took these shots today with my iPhone as part of the mobile challenge.  At the moment the garden is responding to the spring temperatures with trees turning a lovely shade of green, with leaves unfurling as we watch them, flowers flowering and the grass growing under our feet.  We are busy getting everything looking nice because our daughter  is getting married in just a few week’s time.  Although the wedding won’t be here we will no doubt have lots of visitors.protea

I’d love to hear what you think.
