There is something about winter and the colour orange in Queensland! I spotted this gorgeous hedge of orange trumpet vine. Not in my backyard, but when I was out and about on a walk.
Isn't it just beautiful. The fall is so luxurious, the colours so vibrant.
What is is with the colour orange that has such a happy feel about it?
When I went back with my camera to take these shots, I also spotted something unusual in a front yard. A pair of Bush Stone Curlews.
While not uncommon in these parts (we often hear their haunting call at night) I've not seen them during the day before. I can only imagine that they were somehow disturbed in the nocturnal foraging.
I took a few photos and wished them well, not wanting to disturb them too much.
That was my Winter Wednesday morning. How is it with all who participate in Hazel's Winter Wednesday theme. Cold and wet perhaps?? :)) Sorry - couldn't resist that one!
My replies to your comments on the previous post
Daffodil - sounds kind of cosy to me! I enjoy a cold wet day sometimes - maybe not for too long though!
Nelly - it is nice at the moment. Can't say I'm looking forward to those long hot days ahead of us.
delia hornbook - thanks Dee. I find it amazing that this is probably the first time I have taken photos of our surrounds. It is lovely to have done it now.
Ali - yes, we certainly are lucky at the moment. Bit dry though, hope we get some rain before the Ekka and those westerly winds.
**Anne** - I just love the big gums the most too. Once they are gone they won't be replaced, and so many animals and birds make use of them.
saving for travel - I look forward to seeing your photos too SFT. It will be interesting to see the difference!
Tasmanian Vegan and Minimalist - I often think about Tasmania - particularly when it is so hot here! Not so sure about the depths of winter though!
Little Blue Mouse - thanks for commenting. I'm hoping that I'll be organized enough with my photos - we'll see!
cheers for now - Wendy
