My Spring Garden

I love Spring time.

I love the weather at this time of year. It's not too hot and the cold is slowly disappearing.  Although this year has been a bit cooler than normal, I can't wait for the weather to warm up.

I love the garden in Spring, all the flowers that bloom are inviting me to get outdoors and enjoy the scent and beauty of them.

Banksia Rose (Rosa Banksiae)
This is the very stunning Banksia rose, it has bloomed spectacularly this year and thrives on being ignored, only requiring an occasional light pruning.  I am training it to grow over my path so it will form an archway.



 Just some of the beautiful blooms in my garden.

The vegie garden is also thriving at this time of year after a bit of neglect over Winter, but I'll leave that for another post.

Things are beginning to get hectic here with harvest almost upon us.  Here's hoping for a bountiful harvest and enough rain next year.




  1. I love spring too Ann. Out walking this morning and noticing all the bright flowers which grow on the sides of roads. The colours are so vibrant. Different smells and sounds.
    I hope you get enough rain too.

    1. Thanks Kylie, Spring is the start of everything, including getting fit again. So much to look at while we are out and about.

  2. Your roses and irises look fantastic! The colors are just beautiful. What a green thumb you have...

    1. Thank you. Thankfully irises are easy to maintain. When I am inclined my garden blooms, but when I am not inclined my husband calls my garden the cemetery (where plants go to die. lol)

  3. Loving your blog I like lots of things that you write about.

    1. Thank you Valda, I am trying to write about everyday things and things that I enjoy.


Thank you for taking your time to contact me. I enjoy reading your thoughts and ideas.
