OUR WORLD - A Graveyard in Spring


My eyes popped as I drove past one of the two graveyards in 
our little town.

Needless to say, my errand had to take a back seat to photography


do click to enlarge and feast your eyes on the burst of colour


flowers thick as thieves on the ground


a slightly different angle


and their smiling faces up close and personal.


Sorry i haven't visited as much as I would liked for a while, I
hope to get a little more time this week.

  3. GLORious!!
    This Harlequin flower (Sparaxis tricolor) grew abundantly in the wilds of California where I used to live. An introduced native of South Africa, I believe it has colonized over yonder as well? I'd like to be dead in there!!

  4. Spectacular! Glad you had your camera with you. I was envious of the spring flowers in the previous post and these just add to it. Here in Qld, winter raced into summer and drought. It's a struggle to keep up the watering.

    1. Oops I should have mentioned the name, it is Sparaxis tricolour as Sweetpea already mentioned and has colonises Australia as well, especially the drier areas.

  11. WHat wonderful brilliant colours!

    Sorry to hear you're having a problem linking up. As you know, you need to copy and paste in the link to the actual blog post (and not just your blog in general) so that the photos to just that post appear.

    Hope this helps.

  14. You should be linked up! So you know for next time, you need to click on the actual title of your blog post and then copy the URL you see in your browser window at the top. In this case, it's: http://pilskalns.blogspot.se/2013/10/our-world-graveyard-in-spring.html

    You then paste this URL into the first line of the link and then click in the white space next to the boxes. This will make your photos appear and you can choose a photo that will appear on the Our World site.

  16. Such brilliant to almost blinding color. You'd have to be dead not to notice. (Pun intended.)

  17. Beautiful! I am glad you showed the close-up of the flowers - they are exquisite. The clematis was a new acquisition this spring. I am still enjoying retirement. This year we did more work in the yard and now I'm cleaning out the garage, so there is work to be done.
