Springtime and the flowers are out...

posted on 16th of september, 2012

Springtime has arrived in the southern hemisphere...especially in the Western Cape, South Africa.

The gardens are exploding in colour and after some recent rain the fields are dressed in colours bright and pastel. What simply amazes me is the amount of different colours, shapes and sizes that can grow right beside each other.

White, orange, purple and you name it...they are there. Insects have a buffet and a constant buzzing is audible when walking in the garden.

New figs on the fig tree, peach trees in full bloom. Pure bliss for the spring lover. For the Dreamstime photographer...a superb challenge to come up with something more creative than what is already on DT. You of course want to avoid that dreaded rejection email :-)

With that said....get out in the garden and get creative.

Good luck
