A snapshot of spring flowers readying themselves to bloom in our garden.
The Magnolia tree in full flower. Hoping that any wind will remain gentle for a little longer.
Bulbs making a surprise appearance amongst the lemongrass.
The new-found warmth from the sun appreciated by all who bask beneath.
Spring is but 4 days old, but already instilling it’s quiet sense of beauty through growth.
What beautiful spring photos. I’m envious. XX
Thanks BB! Such a beautiful time of year here, with all the gorgeous deciduous trees in blossom or growing new leaves – quite magical! M.xx
Beautiful Margot. I love this time of year. xx
It’s my favourite time of year Marish – so much gorgeous blossom about! Very excited that my b’day blueberry has started flowering too! M.xx
Thank you Lidia! 🙂
Spring is such a special time of the year. Thanks for sharing a bit of yours with us.
Cheers John – I always enjoy seeing what the seasons are doing in everyone else’s part of the world, so figured it might be nice to share a few photos too. 🙂
Gorgeous post Margot. Your photos are so, so beautiful. Our spring flowers are in a state of flux here in Perth, but I saw some ducklings and cygnets at the lake on Sunday. Definitely moving towards the real springtime! xx
Thanks Laura! Hope your springtime picks up very soon! Keep an eye out for those mummy swans – they can be vicious this time of year in Perth!
I am also envious of your magnolia tree!
It’s absolutely gorgeous in full bloom right now, though ours has a rather short flowering period, so I’m making sure I enjoy every minute of it! Are you able to grow them in your part of the world?
Yes, Sydney’s climate is good for magnolias, I think, but we live in an apartment without a balcony (it’s one of those warehouse conversions), so I have to admire them when I see them in someone else’s garden. They are stunning when in bloom!
Thanks! It really is such a beautiful time of year… 🙂
What a beautiful garden Margot and I am absolutely green with envy that you have a magnolia tree – simply stunning….
Thanks Karen! Wellington has the most beautiful magnolia trees in their Botanic Gardens – my love affair with them started back then! So very lucky to finally have one of our own here in the garden. The poor thing has spent many a year in drought (under very strict water restrictions), but is quite happily flourishing now that we’ve had a little more rain over the past few years.
