Spring

Winter has been replaced by Spring here in Australia. Spring colour is in all the gardens and the bees are busy collecting the pollen.

Lily with a Drop of Water

This Arum Lily is growing in the Botanic Gardens at Colac a short distance from where I live.

There had been early morning rain, and the sky was still overcast when I walked through the gardens. Experience has taught me that these conditions are excellent for flower photography.

Arum Lily

Yesterday I took a walk through the Botanic Gardens, Colac, Victoria, Australia. One of my favourite flowers, the Arum Lily (Zantedeschia aethiopica) was in full bloom. The Arum Lily originates in South Africa, and is a very popular plant in Australian gardens. However it has escaped many gardens and is listed as a noxious weed.
