Beautiful Blooms

Good Morning, Hope you are all enjoying your weekend! We are on cyclone alert here in Qld, but looks like the threat has passed by us without too much destruction! Though I am very worried for all those Island/Coastal communities for where the Cat 5 cyclone is positioned right now! My thoughts and prayers are with you all in this worrying time.
Edited 22.3.09 - I have added a watermark to my photos compliments of Swirls & Flourishes for Adobe Photoshop 7.0 by Obsidian Dawn

Yesterday I went and took some new photos out at the Weir but none of them really grabbed my eye to share with you today... So todays theme is
Beautiful Blooms

This is the Moonlight Cactus - (Harrisia Cactus)
These blooms only ever appear during the cover of darkness
By the time the sun appears in the morning sky they close up
these photo were taken early AM

This is a close up of Crepe Myrtle
Love the colour of this plant growing in my garden
This is a bottlebrush bloom in the Noosa NP
This is a very dark photo due to the weather conditions
of a lone Daisy bloom with rain droplets on the petals
Lastly probably the most ugliest plant in the world -
Prickly Pear Cactus with it beautiful vibrant orange blooms
Well I will leave you with these photos, did you find the 2 Papuan in the photos from Fri??? Looking forward to sharing more photographs with you all, in the mean time Happy Snapping! Point, Focus and Shoot!! Luv Shaz xoxo
