Crickets and cricket

Searching for spring wildflowers in the morning, crawling on the ground amidst the crickets, and a cricket game in the afternoon.

Pea flower
A pea, a member of the Fabaceae family, in flower.

A violet, a member of the Violaceae family, of which there are around 26 species in Australia.

A violet with differently shaped petals when compared to the photograph above, so I assume it’s a member of a different violet species.

Cricket game
A cricket game in progress. The red ball can be spotted to the extreme left of the photograph just as it’s about to hit the wicket keeper’s glove.

Bell tower
I’ve passed this building hundreds of times but I can’t say that I’ve ever noticed this tower. The tower, if it can be called that, houses a small bell and, of all things, what looks like a wireless network antenna.

On the way home I took this photograph to represent the landscape in this vicinity. The clouds in the background are the sum totoal of all the clouds in the sky at that moment. So much for the forecast storms!
