The Quiet Delights of Spring

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.

      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

      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 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.
