Much of the last week has been very wet here in Melbourne – a sentence I was not sure I would ever type. The kids have been cooped up inside for the first week of the school holidays as the rain has been pretty steady – not intermittent as it usually is. The nights are colder, the pilot light on the heater has been lit and I used the electric blanket this past week.
There are quite a few dependable flowers in my garden that are still hanging in there, especially my beloved geraniums. These are Ivy Leafed Geraniums (above) that we have cascading out of 3 faux terracotta pots attached to the garage wall. The flowers are tiny, these are taken with the macro setting on the camera.
These Geraniums are going almost all year, and I have professed my love for them before.
This little guy was hiding out in the garden and I spotted him when I crouched down to take a different shot. He was pretty hard to focus on, but I have included this photo because we don’t see a lot of dragonflies here at our place.
Last, but not least, here is proof that autumn is here. This is our little Scarlet Oak that we planted a couple of years ago. You can see the tinge in the leaves as they start to change colour.
