I took this pic at work back in August 2014 , that afternoon we had a light dusting of snow around town, (which is a rare occurrence here) as I was moving plants undercover and washing the snow of others to prevent them from freezing and being damaged I stopped get this pic of these snow covered plants that prefer fire over snow anyday!
(They readily release their seed after fire / extreme hot weather events)
In this picture are Australian natives called Xanthorea, or Grass trees, on average each centimetre of their blackened/charred trunks represents around a year of growth!

It's me again! 😁

Just got back from shopping, but whilst waiting for the taxi to take me there, I noticed how beautiful the light was whilst looking at the flowers on our front. When I got back, I got snap-happy.

Don't have a clue what they are; they're growing in bucket of limestone for the central heating.

Bluebells now looking jaded, but with a bit of photo-majickeriness:

I should know the name of these cos they're everywhere, but I don't (or can't remember).

Phone pics, btw.

those are super beautiful! we have some of the yellow flowers here too. those lavender colored bluebells are super pretty, even more interesting with your amazing photo editing!

how did you get the picture of the bee without it buzzing away?
I had to check the exif data for this one 😁
I was about a metre away, using a Tamron 70-300 telephoto-with-macro lens on a Nikon 5100d. The photo has been cropped a fair bit, too.
Bees are usually okay around people; they're too busy to get sidetracked and start having tantrums (says a lot about internetters, doesn't it?).

Glad you like the photos.
I was chuffed with today's phone pics as I couldn't see a thing on my screen as I took them.

i may try to do that when i get a good camera. why not raise the screen brightness before you take photos? that`s what i usually do.
