Returning home from my morning walk yesterday I came across these beautiful AUTUMN leaves which are just wonderful at the moment.  I love the colours russet, gold and pale burgundy yum

My choice for May - Autumn

Dried seed heads of agapanthus and hollyhocks in AUTUMN

Sharon's choice for May - Beauty

Six beautiful young women, I find them BEAUTIFUL. Samara asked me to take a group photo of Jo and the girls that she framed for her with another photo taken 10 years ago.  This was the unposed photo which was my favourite.  Sammi wanted each one in same position as the older photo.  Coincidentally this was where Jo had her wedding photo's taken, was all long grass back then.  Taking a group photo is such a challenge especially with a energetic 3 year old running around trying to get into the photo, can you see him peeping between Jessica and Kaitlin, little  monkey   Need to take a lot of photo's fast before they all get bored and if you are lucky you will get one half way decent one.

Sharon's choice Beauty

 driving home from the gym I noticed these gorgeous newborn lambs, to me they signify BEAUTY I had to get home grab Johns camera because my zoom is not as strong as his, I had to rest the lens in the diamond mesh fence to keep it still, was blowing a gale and by the time I got home which is just around the corner it was raining again.
I love white flowers and this one is out at the moment, think its a philadelphus, I find BEAUTY in its simplicity
I cheated with this one but just want to share, I cropped it, to get closer.  Reminds me of Ruakaka Station when our pet lambs used to come up on the verandah looking for us to give them a bottle, their little hoofs clacking on the wooden floor.  Oh, aren't they just adorable.
