A Photo a Week: Fulling the Frame

Pakowahai Parak-047

This week Nancy from nancy merrill photography has asked us for photos that fill the frame.  So what else do I show, except daffodils.  It is now heading into spring – next Tuesday is officially the first day of spring.  So the gardens are now sprouting bright colours.  Such as this daffodil.

Yesterday was Daffodil Day – daffodils are used as a symbol for the Cancer Society as it represents hope.

The daffodil is one of the first flowers of spring, whose bright yellow blooms remind us of the joys the new season will bring. It represents the hope there is for the 1 in 3 New Zealanders affected by cancer.

These were taken yesterday at Pakowhai Park.  There was a big patch of wild daffodils and they stood proud in the sun.

WPC: Symmetry

Symmetry of Man versus Nature

Good morning from a grey, rather stormy Hastings morning. A great day for The X Files and beading. Yup, still at it.

Thank you everyone for your kind wishes for Ruth.  She got down to Wellington safely and is settling into her new flat.  She still texted to make sure her brother was home from work.  And she texted to ask what I was eating for tea.  Some habits die hard.

This week Cherie from The Daily Post has given us the prompt to find symmetry.  I have chosen this photo as I love the fact that nature still prevails over man.  The daffodil still manages to poke it’s head through the fence palings to seek the sun.

Symmetry (noun): the quality of something that has two sides or halves that are the same or very close in size, shape, and position; the quality of having symmetrical parts.

The Daily Post: Spring

Good morning from a rather cold and chilly Hastings morning.

The prompt from The Daily Post today is spring. Well here in the southern hemisphere we are well into autumn and driving around yesterday I noticed the lovely autumn colours of the trees now losing their leaves.

So for this post it was a matter of diving into my archives for some photos taken last spring.

So for the first two photos I have gone for a New Zealand theme.  We always know when spring has arrived and the native bush goes gold with these golden flowers.  They are a very sweet flower and very popular with all the birdlife.

Then there are the usual blossoms.
