A Walk Through the Conservatory

…thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squareshttps://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/30/walking-squares-30/

This is the last day for the Walking Squares Challenge. I needed a pick me up because it was lashing down rain for a good part of the day. I took a quick trip over to the Centennial Park Conservatory hoping to see the Christmas displays. Unfortunately they won’t be ready till December 9th. I did, however, enjoy a stroll through the main greenhouses.

Pops of Colour After the Leaves are Down – November 14, 2022

There are still a few flowers that sneak through the decaying foliage and berries add a welcome burst of colour.

Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge – Citrus Sinensis

….thanks to Sue W. and GC for hosting the Weekly Prompts https://weeklyprompts.com/2022/11/05/weekly-prompts-colour-challenge-citrus-sinensis/

According to Wikipedia Citrus Sinensis is as follows: Citrus × sinensis (sometimes written Citrus sinensis), also known as the sweet oranges, is a commonly cultivated family of oranges that includes blood oranges and navel oranges.[1]

I was sure I was looking for a lemony yellow colour but it turns out it’s more orange and can include blood orange.

Blood Orange?

RDP – Starburst

….today’s daily prompt is Starburst https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2022/10/14/rdp-friday-starburst/

I’ve found starbursts in three different forms. I came across some doodle art I had done earlier this year that reminds me of starbursts. The sun of course is the ultimate star and in the photo below it is bursting through the clouds as it rises above the horizon. Many flowers remind me of starbursts as well.

Last Day of September

….busy day today

The lawn bowling club is prepping the grass for next season and the chairs and carpets were stacked and rolled up and put into storage for the winter. On my way back to the car I noticed that the wildflowers and were throwing off their fluffy seed heads and the bees were busy collecting the last bits of nectar.
