It is the first day of Spring. At last my sad garden is trying to shake off the winter blues and an unusually wet winter and show a bit of colour.
Most of our trees stay green all winter and in spring they sometimes show off colourful leaves.
Some flower all year round. Note our beautiful Spring sky today.
These flowers attract.....
These colourful critters.
The Camellias are nearly finished flowering. I picked up buckets of dead flowers off the ground when we returned from USA.
One of my first Bromeliads to flower.
Half my lavender died with the winter wet. I will have to replace it when I'm home long enough to look after it.
I have three of these shrubs. Two look very sad after the winter but this one took off and was bigger than ever this year. I can't understand that. Neither can I remember its name. I'm hopeless with names of plants. I treat my garden as an artist's canvas. I try to make it look pleasing to the eye. I don't regard it as a place for Botany Lessons. (That's just my excuse for being an ignorant gardener.)
