Bayside Walk

.

Let me share a little more of our Sunny Sunday....... visiting with my parents-in-love.


I have never noticed this flower before


These are the "buds"


LOVE this grevillea, will try to find one to grow in our garden


Low tide at the bay, taken from the children's play park


Miss E and some of her sisters still love a play at the park


Banksia at the park, showing several stages of the flower


Rainbow Lorikeet feeding on nectar from another grevillea


Another previously unnoticed flower


Back again


Another bayside beauty, happily growing on the banks.

It was a lovely winter's walk, and today is just as sunny!

Thank you for all your lovely comments. We do live in a lovely part of the world - this spot is about an hours drive from home. I think there is beauty to be found everywhere, some places just require us to look a bit harder than others.

I plan to look in our local hardware/nursery for this grevillea and other treasures one day soon.

Oh my gosh, that rainbow colored bird is incredible!!! I'd like to import THOSE down here in south Texas. And your flower finds are super. Loved the walk you've taken us on today.

Lovely flowers, but strange for me living in Sweden. Totally different, just as the bird :-)
Like your seaside photos, nice. Don't have ebb and flow where I live. Thank you for your pictures. :-)

I enjoyed your collection of photos. I love the curvy walk in the first photo. Beautiful composition. The flowers are lovely too. Looks like you had a fabulous walk!

Thanks to you I had a nice little trip to Australia... whithout being jetlagged! The flowers are wonderful and look so exotic to me!

Wersemei said...

Gracias por compartir ese hermoso día con todos. Un abrazo

Cathy said...

Beautiful. But I must still ask, did you make her dress? She is adorned in beauty too.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Hi Cathy, no I didn't make this dress although I have made a couple of smocked dresses. My Mum found this dress in a thrift shop, like new. Miss V, who os now 7, also had a couple of years wear out of this gorgeous one.

Amanda said...

Just beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

NauticalCottageBlog.com said...

Your photographs are gorgeous! So glad I found you through A Beach Cottage's blog party. :O)

Carletta said...

A beautiful photo essay that ends with a lovely vibrant purple pop!
Your daisy shots below are grand as well.

In answer to your comment on my photoblog about how I made the image. I have an old Corel photo program that makes the image into a circle automatically on a click - easy. :)

Christine said...

Unbelievable!

T's Daily Treasures said...

What a beautiful walk indeed! That Rainbow Lorikeet is gorgeous as are all the flowers. How lucky you are to be out and about and surrounded by such beauty! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

Barb said...

'Thank You' for taking me along on your Sunday walk...... it is a beautiful area. Lorrikeets are one of my favourite native birds. Beautiful photos.

Enjoyed looking at all the beautiful pictures. Such different types of plants & flowers from what I am use to seeing. The boardwalk looks like a great place to enjoy a walk. Joining you at Simple Pleasures today.

You had me at the first photo. I love that winding walkway. All the rest just kept making this more and more lovely. I can tell exactly why this is a simple pleasure.

Sara said...

Looks like a wonderful spot! Love the last flower, the colour is gorgeous!

colorpoems said...

I love the grevillea, what a beautiful flower!
I first learned of Rainbow Lorikeets at the Cincinatti Zoo, the Lorikeet Landing, where you get a cup of nectar and they come right to you a drink/eat it. I had three on me and had my husband get the one off my head!
I also love the sail boats.
What beautiful children you have!

JO said...

OMG! these are just awesome... love the flowers!
