White Gerbera

On Monday of this week I posted some images taken around North Adelaide.
During our stroll through a North Adelaide church courtyard,
I was captivated by this white Gerbera,
having only previously seen the brightly coloured varieties -
reds, yellow, orange and pink.

All things bright.....

It's been a busy week and yesterday I drove a lifelong friend
and her Tasmanian visitor to Clare in South Australia's mid-north.

In the midst of our meanderings, I found these cheerful faces
in a garden during our
"compulsory" visit to one of the many Clare Valley wineries !

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

Wherever you are and whatever the season,
find something to laugh at - whatever the reason!

A picturesque pocket

North Adelaide is traditionally accepted as a desirable residential address, with its fascinating mix of history, architecture, wealth and "upper end" retail.
Out for a stroll with my fellow photography enthusiast friend, we soaked up the ambience of Stanley Street on a very pleasant afternoon.

In addition to a number of early 1800 "row houses", Stanley Street also showcases some more architecturally modern, gated-entry residences.

We completed our outing at a fascinating organic coffee establishment in Melbourne Street (the next street over), that is dominated by retail and corporate operations.
The inside wall of the cafe provided some unusual entertainment :

In the wild

These blooms were growing wild on the outskirts of the Barossa Valley
and were such a contrast to the long grass and weeds amongst them.

Can't help myself!

At the beginning of April I shared some of the magnificent roses on display at Newman's Nursery following the releases of new varieties.
On looking back through that file, I couldn't help feeling it would be selfish of me not to share some more pics of these stunning blooms, so here's another selection.....

Botanic reflections

Coming to the end of our visit to the Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens last week,
we came upon this lily pond.

.... and this is a close-up of that golden reflection at bottom right of the image above..

as it was rather late in an overcast day, the flowers were beginning to hide their splendor.

Happy weekend all!
