Ahh, I'm so glad this topic comes in summer for me because I just love the colours of early summer. Even the weeds growing beside the road are at their best (or some might say worst) in summer.
The grass may not be so lush and green a bit later in summer if there isn't much rain but right now even the cows look happy.
The ocean water temperature is warm at this time of year and the beach beckons. The surf lifesaving boat and flags make a bold statement against the wonderful blue of sky and sea.
Little children in bright bathers can even be distracted from the thought of Santa.
I had taken eight photos of summer flowers for this topic but now that I am officially all grown up (I retired today!) I am showing some restraint. These are native flax flowers which are in full blown and adorn nearly every country roadside at the moment.
I'm looking forward to doing the Spotlights this week, I think this is a fab topic! Why not have a look at the contributions of the FSO team , see what seasonal colours there are elsewhere in the world.
