Default Garden shot

Jelpee in an earlier thread showed a photo of his lawn (before summer gets to it)
seeing as i am not going to share my lawn i thought i would show a different part, my Banksia bush, i like native flowers and a wild look


so hows all your gardens going
how about sharing a photo or two?

great picture John, I'm not going to show you my garden. Due to the cold weather we're having (about 10c less than normal) it's a to depressing sight.
Will post as soon as there is something to see.

Very nice shot John..the composition with the emphasis of the one flower in the foreground makes for a excellent composition!

Great shot of a very interesting plant!
I don't think I've seen one before, they're very pretty.
Would they grow here in Florida?

Very cool flowers, and a good picture. Good idea, too! Let's see - post the one tulip that bloomed this year (and is now gone), or a shot of pines? I'll have to think about that.

i thought with it being spring up there, some flowers would be out, oh well
of course you dont have to put up pictures of flowers, could be ornaments or a path or something else (even a pine tree)
looking forward to your photo Ronnie

thanks for the comments though
i forgot to mention i used the 10-17 fisheye, which helped bring the forground flower further forward

GW these plants like it dry (no watering yipppee), I think Florida would be too wet, there are ones that come from the tropics that may survive there, i am not sure if they are available (Banksia dentata) the flowers are a different colour though
