SPRING GARDEN

I like looking out my study window in Spring. I can see the native flowering trees and the ground cover rampaging through the garden. It is especially pretty when the rain falls and cleans everything but it is also nice when the afternoon sun lights up the flowers. It beckons me away from my computer to go outside and enjoy the beauty. Come along with me for a stroll around my garden.

  2. No surprise that you can expertly show individual flowers in your garden, but I like big photos of the rampaging growth. The first photo has cockatoo in its file name, yet I can't see one.

    1. How can you see the file name smarty pants? When I imported the photos into Lightroom I must have used Cockatoo as the file name as there were also photos of a cockatoo with the same batch. Poor organisation on my part. The birds in my garden will feature on a future post then you will see the cockatoo.

  7. thanks for the walk in your wonderful garden, I would be out there to. we need rain, our ground cover is not happy and neither are the ferns. 2 months ago we got 15 inches in 2 days and not one drop since. the yard is pure sand now

  8. Your gardens put a smile on my face. I love the focus of your close-up photos. Early this morning, I was on the deck in my robe, yelling and waving, trying to get 3 moose to move away from my aspens. Hope that idea makes you smile, too! Thanks for the e-mail.

  10. Looks like the ferocious hail storms have not been in the Daisy Hill area.
    Looking forward to Terrigal, St.Ives and the Hunter Valley.
    Away hopefully from this damn humidity.

  14. I can see why you get distracted Diane, your garden looks a delight. Gardens love a tropical climate. I'm beginning to ready my garden for the hot summer. I did hear that this was going to be Perth's wettest summer, I'm so hoping that that's true 😊

    1. I'm not the best with names of flowers but I after using Google I can tell you it is called Xerochrysum bracteatum, its common name is Everlasting Straw Flower or Australian Paper Daisy. It has hard prickly petals.

  20. The colors are wonderful! Spring was always so welcome when we lived here in Oregon all year round .... nowadays we miss the season In both definitions of the word, since Florida doesn't show quite such a contrast bwteen winter and spring.

  22. I love my garden but the contrast between yours and my salt-air-laden-windswept island garden is huge!
