in MtLawleyShire’s own garden: flowers & fluffy cat

This is over a week & a bit in my own garden: a rose, the zygocactus flowering and, of course, the sweetest, fluffiest flower:

First, my rose.  It being the end of June, I really should’ve pruned – but I’m glad I didn’t.  And do you notice the photos?  There are 2 different cameras involved.  One my little canon, the other is the dSLR.

The zygocactus: the first bud & opening flower, and then there are more.  I love how the light glows of these flowers, & I love the colour.

MtLawleyShire: Moar flowers in other People’s Gardens

Flowers other than roses – though, it being winter, there aren’t too many around.  But they are there.

Marigolds in West Perth, a pot of them outside a cafe like a pot of sunshine:
