Looking up

While walking around the city I tend to look up. I love discovering small details on buildings, love how one sees all the way up to Signalhill through Shortmarket Street or all the way to the harbour on Long Street. And I love the sun glistening through the trees.
The trees are really lush at the moment, and I discovered that lots of them are blossoming.

Perfect Blue


Some of the Blossoms are huge and brightly coloured

Lots of them are in clusters and look like fluff in a sweet array of colours from a far

Pinkfluff


others are nearly invisible, only when looking carefully will you discover the delicate tiny blossoms 

Blossoms on Tree


Don't you just love the sound of the wind in the leaves?Or the different shapes the leaves draw in the sky like a precious lace?
