Before the Roses Bloom!

While many of our blogging friends are experiencing
shorter days with cooler weather
Spring is looming quick 
and fast in my part of the world, Downunder
just thought I would take you on a short walk around the garden as all the 
trees take on their new foliage and plants start to
remind us that they really are still there
and ready to pop!

 Spring - Glorious Spring!

Lush green leaves of this Oyster plant which self seeded
itself in this place as it is getting ready to flower!

 Aah! The Willy Wagtail has chosen the same spot
to nest again! Just look at the intricate weaving
on this dear little nest using spider webs!

 A perfect place to sit and ponder under the magnificent
Chinese Elms.

Little areas where Rhododendrons grow
under the shade of the Crab Apples.

while some shell pink Azaleas
from the bright sunshine!

 Native irises grow either side of the steps leading down to
spreading garden beds that once was a paddock
for the Angora goats!

The exquisiteness of this pink tinged Cherry Blossom!

 and bushes of Lavender growing in and out of
May bushes and Orange Blossoms!



Just in this one spot there are three different varieties of Lavender

where the bees are at work!

 The fragrance from this white Wisteria is just

 and it is only in its second year of growth

 growing happily over our little garden room.

The huge Eucalyptus trees in the background give you
an idea of the size they can grow to!

 The rose bushes are definitely shooting new growth 
on all the bushes now and in the distance
come our much loved Angora babies
curious as to what has been thrown over the fence for them
and this is Darcy
whose mohair fleece will be looking very much shorter
in a week's time when they are all shorn!

Contentment is getting to eat some yummy green
weeds that don't grow out in the paddock where these beauties

 I hope there is much contentment in your lives 
at the moment too!

Love and hugs,
xox Suzy
