These pictures were taken from a small hidden bridge along a path which leads to an unusual fruit tree. How I love the tasty fruit of that strawberry tree!
The once lively pond and stream is now a swamp clotted with beautiful yellow flowers. Frogs, spiders, insects and birds seem to adore living there.
Close up, the detail of these bright blooms is lovely.
This is a jumping spider. Sissy and I spotted him on this wrinkled leaf in the midst of the yellow lilies, as we crossed over one of the hidden bridges found in The Abandoned. It was a decided shock, to see this critter watching us, for sure!
I love the idea of Weekend Flowers! To see more lovely blooms from everywhere, visit Terra's blog Goodies for a Pleasant Life.
