These lavender plants had been planted in large clumps beside the path that runs along Botany Bay in Sans Souci (a Sydney suburb).

Since posting, I’ve discovered the flowersoverflowers tag, a way for bloggers to share flower photographers. So I’ve made this my first contribution.

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge celebrates spring with yellow wildflowers. These photos were taken at Gore Hill Cemetery in the Sydney suburb of St Leonards — in November, which is late spring for us.

By coincidence, one of my recent posts also features these flowers in this cemetery, although the theme for that post is ‘muted colours’ so they look very different. Check it out here.
