An occasional blog about natural history, travel, books and writing ... and anything else that catches my attention.
Pretty shot on the "Garnet"
i love taking close ups of leaves...new buds or dried out & curled...wonderful colors of your forest's new growth!!
Lovely. I love your use of the verb "flush." And a good reminder that while it's late summer, here, it's warming up to spring down there.Oh, and thanks for the vocab moment: carnelian. Looked it up, they surmise it's originally from the Old French word for cherry. Brand new word to me. =) This may be the new thing I learned today.
All this sun and new growth --- absolutely glorious! A few more days and I might force myself to get up on the roof and clean out the gutters. (Yeah, there's always a down side to this!)
G'day Bronwen,If only plant field guides were structured along the lines of 'Plants with red flowers', 'Plants with blue flowers', etc, I'd probably get a few more scientific names right!It's about to happen down here too - Spring that is.Regards,Gouldiae.
What a brave idea - posting images without any pretence of names.Good for you.I also love photographing new growth like that, but I n=have never posted a collection like that - as art or in your case, semi-precious stones.Good idea. Lovely plants, Lovely images.Denis
Gouldiae, Denis, I'm finally embracing my failure as a botanist and acknowledging my ignorance. Some day I'll identify these species, but not today!This latest burst of new growth is glorious in the sun.
