Bunch of lovely pig-face plants found on the foreshore area in Barwon Heads, Victoria, Australia.
Here are five more of my Instagram edited shots. Click here to see all five photos on one page.

These tiny thin flowers were found in a greenhouse section at the Cranbourne Boatnical Gardens. I’m afraid I don’t know the type of plant, but each flower head here was only about 5cm high at this point. They remind me of someone trying to create a shadow puppet of a dog with their hand!

In my own small back garden pond (see my ‘nature’ page for more), was this lovely water lily. I was lucky to take the shot when I did, because the next day our new lovely dog, Maggie (mini groodle puppy – see ‘other’ page), thought it looked interesting enough to chew! She loves water and jumps in the pond regularly!

Beautiful pink flower on the end of a succulent stem. These succulents are quite popular (and our garden is full of them) as they require very little watering. Water restrictions are in force in many parts of Australia. About four years ago we re did our gardens, took away the lawn, added a day bed, water tolerant plants, screens and it now becomes an ‘outdoor room’ which gets used far more than it would have if the half dead lawn was still around! In fact we are having a bbq today as you look at this!
