Hi Lily, Hi Lily, Hi-Lo
Today is the first day of winter here in Australia, so I thought I’d give you an idea of how flowers can be used to brighten our horizons.
Melburnians love their gardens, although the last few years have been tough going, with the prolonged drought and the progressively tougher water restrictions. But this display of flowers, shot outside the GPO in central Melbourne, shows just how important flowers really are to Melburnians.
The first shot was taken as I walked down Bourke Street, then I decided to go a little closer. So I walked up the first couple of stairs to get a good look at the vibrant gerberas, freshly cut and wrapped to carry away.
Next, my eye was drawn to the lily buds and the graceful manner in which they pointed to all quadrants of the compass.
It could be a long, cold season, but I’ll be doing some maintenance and recovery in the garden at Casa Authorblog, to ensure our own tribute to winter colour.
