The cold and wet days have made me housebound. I looked around for something to capture indoors, and the little blue flowers were the perfect answer!

    wow, very creatively done Debs, such lovely lighting...there is nothing blue about those flowers ;-) they are ever so pretty...

The Lily Windmill is the only operational flour producing windmill on mainland Australia and it is in Albany ;-)

Like the seasonal contrasts here - very creative! The winter glove cradling the vibrant detailed colors of summer...and of course, THE LIGHT!

Beautiful capture, colors and light, Debbie! Would love to have these growing in our garden. PS - We had a couple of grizzlies last year walk by us less than 20 feet away. My wife booked our bear trip for this summer last Sunday.

Such a beautiful contrast in tonality as well as the look of roughness and delicacy in harmony.
