In a week or two these will be making a mess on the paving, but for the moment they look good and attract the bees.

Nice color combinations Raphael. I think the second is my favorite composition.

I really like the light composition also in the second shot. The plant reminds me of a plant we call the bottle brush.

Thanks all....Jerry The paperbark (Melaleuca) is similar to our bottlebrush family (Callistemon) as well. And we do have a white/lemon callistemon, though I do not have one in the garden. We have a few reds to attract birds. Both OZ natives.

Very nice. The sky color really sets them off well. Number two may well be my favorite also. Do they have a scent?

Love the blue BKG and the fine detail. The closer view in #3 is my fave.

Thanks Mark, Steve and Tinosa. The sky is of course helped by the polarizing filter I was using at the time specifically for these shots.

All of them are nice but really nice color and composition on #3 Rafael. Did you use a polorizer to get the sky so blue?
