My pictures for this challenge are from my archives. I have just a few more days to pack everything and no time at all to go anywhere to take photos so I’m looking for some new angles on old photos.
This is the perfect time for yellows. My daffodils are all in full bloom. I do love daffodils, the big King Alfreds are my favourites but I have other varieties too.
As it is still winter here we also have wattle in bloom. A bus driver I used to know used to say “When you see the wattle you’ll see the snow.” I always think of that in August and sure enough, although we’ve not had low-level snow this month we have had falls on the mountains.
I’m very partial to yellow flowers. Here are some more.
It’s been so grey and wet through the winter and early spring that the bright yellows of the winter wattle, jonquils and daffodils makes a bright splash of colour that really cheers me up.
My first thoughts for this challenge were things that were fire engine red and golden yellow. What do I have in those colours? I love red, it’s my favourite colour but what red things are around the house?
I went outside. There is my red, red rose.
Autumn leaves from the apple tree and the reddish leaves of the Japanese Maple tree.
I also found Teen Skipper’s friend Nikki. Well OK I had to take her outside myself but she does have a red and yellow outfit. These are the colours I was thinking of in the first place.
Last of all, from the archives Buddhists marching in the Hobart Christmas Parade a couple of years ago.
I had to hunt around for some pictures of orange flowers as I was surprised to find I didn’t have many. Luckily I found several taken at the Botanical Gardens in spring and some lovely roses I photographed when I blunderd into a flower show at the Hobart Town Hall while looking for something else. Of course I had to add daffodils from my garden and some winter colour in the form of golden wattle.
