Trees and some flowers in MtLawleyShire

I went for a walk today, down to Hyde Park.  It is a mess, and the water levels are so low, which, considering the heat we’ve been having is not surprising, even though we have had some rain.  I’m still trying to get the hang of the new camera, so many of these trees are those I have photographed before, but not all of them turned out.  Something to do with – I think – ISO or something…sigh.  I will sort it out, eventually.  But in the meantime…

It was a very windy afternoon, so I wasn’t able to take as many flower photos as I wanted, but I was successful with some.

I don’t know what the 1st one is, the next is a hibiscus.

& I have no idea what these are, but the colour is amazing!

& these are like pieces of sun fallen into a street side flower garden:

A Jacaranda with some flowers still:

Then into Hyde Park.  This Morten Bay stands like a sentry


The path is sun-drenched, casting all in tones of shadow and light:

Plane Trees:

I hope to walk tomorrow as well, so maybe there will be another post soon.

I hope you enjoyed these few flowers & trees.

    I’m following your blog for the pictures that remind me of where I grew up (well, South Perth, actually but I had relatives in Mt. Lawley).

    Can you check your spelling – I’m pretty sure it should be “Moreton Bay fig”. It just looks weird the way that you have it.


  3. Gorgeous! Starting 2014 calendar already!


    • no – probably won’t do Hyde Park this year – I will take photos but not for a calendar. It won’t have recovered enough. I’m thinking sunsets. I’m severely curtailed by my working hours, but I should be able to get at least one decent sunset a month! Glad you liked it though 🙂
