My Oh My! Garden Jewels...

Hello lovely friend.
A little gift of colour from my garden at the moment in the form of Callistemons or as they're more commonly known, Bottle Brushes - I'm sure you can see how they got their name.
Their colour truly delights me, particularly in the morning sunshine and the feathery lightness to their form, well that's just glorious! This little montage showcases one of my alltime favourite colour combinations, hot pink, lime green with a good dash of white and the most incredible thing is that these beauties are natives in our area popping up in the most unexpected of places - bliss.

I hope that you've been keeping well over the past fortnight.
It's been a bit of a bumpy ride for me with lots of highs and lows with my health and energy [fortunately more of the former than the latter] but I hope to be back in the regular blogging saddle soon.

To all of you who've sent notes and emails - thank you so very much, you are sweet friends indeed.
Until next we meet, I hope that you keep your eyes and hearts open for beautiful gifts of serendipity just like the one I've shared with you today.
