A little walk in MtLawleyShire – flowers, trees, sunset and moonrise

Another little walk (to get cat biscuits and bread) & in the hot windy late afternoon – so much beauty which was unexpected.  I had thought most roses would be scorched by the sun & I didn’t expect all the trees with blossom!

Roses – sweet things amongst sun-scorched ruins of older blooms:

pretty pink ones:

Ones like vanilla ice cream with raspberry topping (as a friend described it) and lovely yellow:

Trees:

this is a pigeon-berry bush – yes, bush.  This particular specimen is over 100 years old and has been saved by people who have also saved a lovely old heritage listed place, turning it into a family hoe complete with 2 dogs & a gorgeous garden.  The strange shape is apparently quite strong, though it has lost some branches.

My lovely friend, the lemon-scented gum:

A tree in someone’s backyard now visible because three old houses on William Street were demolished – there will probably be boxy ugly flats with no gardens at all erected.  I am glad to see this tree and even gladder it is safe in someone else’s backyard:

Peppermint tree & ancient eucalypt – the one with the soft fluffy yellow blossoms (those I always associate with May Gibbs Snugglepot and Cuddlepie)

Tall trees growing straight on a street verge:

Sunset: quiet with wind calligraphy written in a light pen:

the clouds low on the horizon looked like a wave of flames – presaging the heat gone & to come the next day:

And then, the moon:

Finally, last glow of light in the sky
