Introduced Ice plant, Cape fig, Hottentot fig (Carpobrotus edulis) in flower.

The colour of summer is blooming in the coastal sand dunes around New Zealand. This hardy, introduced Ice Plant, the Hottentot Fig, blooms along the coastline in startling beauty. Its colour stands defiantly bright, on even the wildest spring days in Wellington; scattered along walkways and through coastal dunes, as the wind bustles on through.

On the calmer days, its magnificent colour is enjoyed at leisure; as we sit in the dunes and listen to the waves, basking in the sunshine with pleasure.

Yellow, a colour that makes me happy, feel cheerful and bright, a colour for all seasons and times of day, a colour in so many hues to complement a thousand moods.

Yellow, on ‘The Photo Gallery‘ this week, where bloggers gather to share their interpretations on a theme.
