Spring that is...
Lovely blue skies here today,
Nice warm sunshine,
22C (71.6F) tomorrow,
24C (75.2F) on Tuesday,
The birds are singing very noisily,
The blowies are back (blowfies),
The little flies will follow very soon,
I even have a t-shirt on, with NO jumper (sweater).
And the plants are all in bud or bloom.
We tend to grow native Australian plants as they grow the best in our climate.
Wattle, Australian native
Pink Emu bush
Not sure about this one, but very pretty and a native...
( I feel sure someone will know)
Geraldton Wax getting ready to burst...
The Quandongs (wild peaches) are doing nicely,
can't wait for some pie...
(where I got the blog name)
on our little block are some native lovelies,
who would have thought they could be so nice?
And in a variety of colours
Pink pigface daisy,
this is growing all over our block in amongst the saltbush
Some Spear Grass
looking toward the salt lake,
even saltbush has it own special beauty.
I think so anyway lol.
In the garden...
Bird of Paradise about to bloom
tough and hardy in this climate
It has been a long, cold, wetter than usual Winter,
but in a few days it is Spring here.
Time for changing the sheets to cotton,
and removing extra blankets from the beds,
Digging out the cooler clothes,
getting the vegies in the garden,
preparing for the dirty dust storms that Spring can bring,
but I am certainly ready for the warmth...
just warmth, not HEAT that is yet to come.
Have a great Sunday,
