Only when I got home and started to look at the images did I notice the flowers made a question mark shape. I really must pay more attention to the shapes the various blooms make as I'm sure I must miss more opportunities than I capture. Oh well, I obviously need to spend more time looking and observing instead of rushing about.
I can't say I've been feeling the best of late and I thought a bit of fresh air and a gentle walk through the Botanic Gardens would be a good idea. It was lovely. We're fast approaching winter and, as such, many of the trees that still have leaves are showing some lovely autumn colours. I've added a shot of some acer leaves in the second shot in this post to give you the idea.
On the way home I took a closer look at some of the large ferns. I must admit to being quite taken with their shapes, colours and their spores. You'll notice a difference in spore colour in the last two shots below.
