Local beauties

One of the aspects I love about living in Richmond Hill is that there is always something new to see and photograph, if you keep your eyes open. Our walk this morning took us past St Cuthberts Church, Westbourne Road where were were invited into the church while taking pictures of plants and building.

While Suzi-k snapped away at stained glass windows and the building, I was focusing on these beauties.

Frangipanis on the street outside the Church

Up close and personal with the Frangipanis

Magnificent tree (I think it's a Tipiana Tipu) outside the garden of rememberance.

Pink Oleander in the Church garden

Around the corner in Glen Street, outside the Fisheries Compliance Office, I came across this varigated Canna.

Pink Hibiscus in Glen Street. Unfortunately it is no longer in its prime, but is still worth a shot

Gorgeous, especially the thick, lucious-leaved frangipani and the twisted tree.
