TODAY'S FLOWERS ~ 23 * Winter Delights *

While walking across our paddocks yesterday,
these lovely blossoms stopped me on my way



their dainty petals tucked in caps of brightest red



unfurled before my eyes as there I stood and stared
quite unprepared to meet such loveliness of dancing
ballerinas clad in tutus upon a swaying Eucalyptus bow.



and homeward bound, returned to see
these pretty blossoms on my Almond tree!

The world is full of flowers, just click the Logo and you'll see.

Many thanks to Luiz Santilly Jr. and the lovely people on
his team for caring to provide this charming meme.
