Sunday Snapshots

Spring forward... Today is the first day of summer daylight saving - so good! 

And, wonder of wonders, the weather is beautiful - sunny and warm.

Sofie and Manu LeGrand actually sought out a cool spot, instead of lying in the sun:



The bees are busy in the clematis:


There's plenty of choice.... 




 I really like the delicate flower on this clematis - it's not so showy, less floriferous, but still lovely:

  1. That looks like the clematis that is climbing/has climbed a gum tree in our back yard. There are no blooms in the lower levels but the top of that gum tree is just covered.
    Wonderful shots Alexia - I never capture bees. I try, and I fail.
