Floral Friday Challenge.

Today I had cause to drive to Warrnambool, about two hours away, and nearly the home of my misspent youth.

With a bit of time to spare I ventured down the Breakwater and Thunder Point

While I was expecting to take seascapes there were many other subjects including this plant which appeared quite happy in the exposed setting and trailing down the stone wall.

flower_0545Opposite the first photo was this shot which appeared a bit bland out of the camera…

flower_0546 so I tried Picasa’s boost to enhance the colour.

Likewise this shot did not appear as colourless at the time.  Maybe, temperatures below twenty and fairly brisk southerly ripping in from Bass Strait effected my powers of observation.

I also gave this shot a slight Picasa ‘boost’.

Some random photos from our garden this week.

Although taken last in September, this photo could have been taken this morning prior a day of thirty-three degree temperatures.

To the right of the first photo stand several grevillias,

which still have some flowers on them as autumn approaches.

Mt Sheba colour this week.

This is an old-fashioned fuchsia which we had many of at our  previous home.

Unfortunately, focus was not quite right.

So, I used Picasa’s Heat Map effect to convert it into, I think,

an acceptable image.

I think this is a hibiscus.

flower_0560We tried to grow them in the Western District…alas the climate was too cold and they always succumbed.

However, in Geelong’s milder climate  they seem to thrive.

Back in Fremantle this week.

flower_0330These flowers are part of the garden at a small coffee shop near the departure point for our return ferry journey back to Perth.

flower_0333

We have no idea what they are.

however, they are eye-catching.
