This month, since #TreeSquares is over I decided to post to Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge (FOTD). Like Becky B, Cee offers us the freedom to post every day or when we feel like it. I made the mistake of classifying my trees as flowers for about half the month last month. So this month – no trees. (maybe). Cee’s FOTD challenge accepts:
- Single flowers
- Multiple flowers
- Flower fields
- Tree or bush blossoms
- Autumn leaves
- Spring leaves
- Decorative Cabbage
- Still life
- Fake or Silk Flowers
As I swirled through my forested universe last month I came in touch again with my Australian trip. This month I’ll revisit only the flowers I photographed in Ballarat, Melbourne, Healesville Sanctuary and Queensland. Sometimes I might combine my post with another challenge I am doing, but I may just post one photo a day. I’ve never done that, so I’ll see how it goes.
August 8 Hen-Pecked Artichokes
Old Sovereign Hill in Ballarat, Australia is the equivalent to Sutter Creek in California teaching and celebrating the Gold Rush. The town was huge and completely in character. The completeness of the town’s presentation also reminded me of Colonial Williamsburg.
Around one of the old homes was a beautiful garden. This rooster enjoyed the freedom of roaming the garden. He particularly liked artichokes. The bee was not interested in sharing.
