Macro Monday: Winter Garden

Lisa's Chaos
Enough complaining about the winter weather.  It happens every year so I shouldn't be surprised that it is cold.  One of the great things about winter in Australia is this is when many of the native plants flower so it's a great time for macro shots.

I went for a walk through my garden this morning to see what has started to flower.  It's still a little early and I can see lots of buds that will look great in a couple weeks.  My grevillea never stops flowering so I know I can always get a photo of them and the Kangaroo Paw has been going strong for a few weeks now.

  1. All of those are very nice macro shots. Not bad for your coldest month to be so full of flowers.

  6. Wow, you have some weirdly beautiful flowers in Australia, don't you? That white one with two trumpets sharing the same sepal (?) is quite unusual!

    Nicely photographed, too!

  8. I love these photos - we are used to seeing these plants in the UK but they don't flower that well even in our summer. Excellent macros.

  9. Lovely flowers! I don't think I've seen these flowers before. I know they won't survive in our hot climate here.
