It’s a while since I’ve had the chance or time to just walk around, looking at flowers and trees. Working nights and often days, I get no chance for taking sunset photos or any others! It was mostly flowers. The area I walked in – which is where I usually take sunsets – isn’t that big on trees – very sadly so as one of my favourite trees – a flame tree which I took many, many photos of earlier this year, a scant few months ago, has been chopped down.

An usually coloured jasmine almost camouflaged against the brick wall
& one of these: I love these 🙂
This small bush intrigued me with its twisting branches:
& when I got home, a certain someone was tired of waiting and wanted dinnah!
I hope you enjoyed my little amble around the streets – except for the tree that is no more.
