Summer showers bring flowers

While the rain lately has been tiring (yet enjoyable too) — it with the return of warmer sunny days has seen the grass flourish and flowers burst open. There is a wide range of colours, fragrances, and new plant life. Sadly, the cane toads are back as they enjoy the rainy weather. Luckily Jaffa doesn’t bother them as they eject a poison when provoked.

A fine example of a Norfolk pine cone and its seed petals taken by Derya — what a stellar photographer with SUCH great composition!
