Home from Melbourne, The Big T and I spent the day on post-holiday chores, amongst them lawn-mowing. These beautiful little flowers form a carpet amongst our trees and T kindly spared them from the blades so I could photograph them.
Probably my favourite plant from this photo-shoot. I love that two of the leaves are a decayed. Tomorrow I’ll post a more “perfect” specimen, so you can see how gorgeously bright are the living leaves.
My blogging week is looking to be a bit disrupted, so I thought I’d take this as an opportunity to offer something I made earlier.
I’ve scheduled a few posts for the coming days, with images I shot of the beautiful and tiny plants growing around the snowline on Mt Ruapehu.
I don’t know what any of them are sadly, so if anyone in this wonderful blogging community with more botanical knowledge than me does know — please share.
And thank you to the BBC’s Blue Peter for the title of the post series.
The sun’s flirtation seems to have ended, and it’s cold again and very windy.
A good day to light some candles, make a coffee and read my book.
