Sunday in my City - Splendour in the Grass


Flowers and grasses collected during the week from Centennial Park and North Bondi for you to savour at your leisure.

A member of the Sunday in my City community.

I am sampling the joys of Melbourne - including a day at the tennis. I will be back at my desk on Thursday 28th January.

Fabulous photos Julie!!! Love the succulents... especially the translucence of the single frond on the left!!!

Woody said...

Thanks Julie, it very cold and drab here and your photos have helped brighten my day! I really like the first one - the little purple flower is shy and hiding from everyone.

Susan said...

I love the variety found in grasses, and the different textures you've illustrated...lovely photos Julie. We won't see any grass for at least three more months (unless its a photo or a trip elsewhere!)

Very cheery - I especially like the two tufty ones, so soft against the dark background.

Now you know I am as much a grass tragic as you so this post is a delight. I especially love those little tails in the second last one. However, I must also make mention of the light on those succulent things ... it makes them very special. Makes me want to go out to the garden and see if I can make my aloe vera's look special.
BTW my red fountain grass is still sans-fountains, I think I cut them back too late.

Oh wow your photos are wonderful.

Savor, indeed. Grasses are some of the most perfect natural works of art and these photographs prove it.

Julie said...

Perfect indeed. I spent quite some time yesterday morning wandering through less popular parts of Centennial Park, photographing grasses ablaze with morning light and dew. Glorious.
