I noticed this tree while walking.
It’s April, mid Autumn here and still quite warm. The flowers are fading. Here is one of my dahlias I grew from seed, waving its petals around in protest.

It’s an old wheelbarrow, minus wheels, sitting on the ground, a container for this odd plant that I like a lot.
I was testing the camera after the zoom lens stopped zooming. Dr Google advised to throw it away. However my talented and patient husband took it all to pieces and put it back together, minus a tiny piece of broken plastic, smaller than a rice grain. It now zooms again.
Just as well it was fixed. I love my cheap Macro zoom!

I hadn’t realised the different characteristics that these flowers could take on. This is a ‘Fluffy’ one.
It’s very hot here now. Hovering around 40 degrees C. for days now. My sunflowers are struggling bravely in the heat, but the constant heat takes a toll.
I threw some seeds down in spring and marvelled at the different but similar flowers.
This was taken in my sister’s garden. I forget what it is called. i think it starts with “A”.

I love how the color fades out towards the edges to a pale ruffle.
As I was weeding today, I noticed these flowers in my garden.
In spring I threw out a packet of meadow seeds and watered them regularly until they emerged. The packet contained mixed seed. Mostly the poppies seem to to be outnumbering everything else. I found an old sunflower that I had kept and edged the plot with its seeds. In hindsight, that was dumb because the sunflowers hide the poppies and all the rest. So in the midst of the garden these had established a home for themselves.

A flowering gum from Australia, in Christmas colors. I think it’s smiling!!!
