Vibrant pink

Vibrant pink
After a volunteer shift on 23 July 2014, I wasn't too far away from the Erlton/Roxboro Natural Area, where I was finally going to go on a botany walk. Having been to this location several times before, I knew it was a short, easy, flat trail, and that I could go as far as I wanted and then turn back early, which is what I did. I've missed pretty well all the botany and birding walks the last few months, which is quite depressing. The main thing I wanted to see were the Nodding / Musk Thistles, as these are my favourite species of Thistle. They are called a "weed", but I love to see them. The sun was unfortunately in the wrong direction, so I was only able to get a handful of shots, but better than nothing.

With a couple of hours to "kill", I spent them at the Reader Rock Garden, which was just a few minutes' drive away from the evening botany walk location. This beautiful, vibrant pink Peony was the only one still in reasonable condition that day. It's a gloomy, overcast day today, so it feels good to see a bright splash of colour. It's only 15°C this morning, which feels good after some recent hot weather.

There are only six new photos from My Contacts and it's already 10:30 a.m... Hmm, I wonder if there is problem with Flickr, or if people are just too busy to post photos at the moment.
