MY WORLD ~ Spring Close to Home

Spring has sprung with a vengeance, the whole world seems
a-wash with blossoms and flowering bulbs. The air is scented,
the bees are buzzing and frogs are making a huge racket in the
dams and in the garden.

Plum blossum burting at the seams . . .

Cascading Bridal Veil.

A few weeks ago we still had the last roses,
the roses are pruned now and tritonias have sprung up to
keep the wombat company
*

*
and everywhere, just everywhere the gold of wattles.
Below, the Cootamundra Wattle, Acacia beilliana like sunshine
come down to earth.

Do you wonder that I am all agog with all this beauty and more
surroundinng me?

  6. Interesting Arija - your plum blossom is just bursting into bloom on the same day that I pick plums to make plum and ginger jam.
