Almost Too Late




Another busy day, mostly cloudy, and all eight children are at various stages of a not-so-nice head cold. However, there was opportunity for a late walk. Yes, almost too late and the light wasn't good but I want to share these with your anyway.







As the jacarandas are finishing their glorious flowering, now there is a bright Christmas-coloured display of poinciana trees in some streets around town. The poinciana is a native of Madagascar and seems to thrive in our climate.




While I hope to capture more poinciana photos soon, in better light.......at least I was able to capture the moon between poinciana leaf fronds as I headed home before it became dark.



Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

So nice to see everything blooming and alive and colorful! Hope your children feel better soon. My, I can't imagine how much work goes into 8 children, much less when they're sick. (((hugs)))

Lovely captures, especially looking through the archway up the street with Jacarandas in bloom, and the shot of the moon is fabulous. Thanks for sharing. (p.s. hope the family get over their colds quickly!)
