Saturday Snapshot 22nd September

Saturday Snapshot is a meme hosted by Alyce at At Home With Books.

The rules are simple:

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
 
 
Spring time in Sydney is one of the times when our native flowers really show off.
 
I wish I knew the names of all the different types of Grevillea's, but I dont!
The pink ones above and below are obviously of the Spider variety.
 
 
 
Below is a cultivar called Misty Pink (don't you love google!)
 
 
 
 
 
I love how the Eucalyptus leaves change colour.
My understanding is that this can happen at any time of the year and is simply a renewal process like decidious trees go through in the autumn.
 
 
And it wouldn't be Spring in Sydney without wattle (acacia).

    1. Yes the 'eucalyptus green' colour is pretty prevalent on Australian natives and as a colour for many home furnishings and in government buildings!

  4. Wow! I do love every one of these....my favorite might be the brighter pink Grevillia, but it would be a hard choice. Thanks for sharing, Brona, and here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

  5. That first one is an explosion of pink. Some of the ones after that have an underwater creature look to me.

  12. I'm not sure I've ever seen that Misty Pink Grevillea before, it's lovely. Sadly wattle just makes me think of hayfever, all I see is pollen about to be set loose.

    1. Yes that's why I have photos of from the nearby park and not the real thing - my husband is also affected by hayfever.
