Spring has arrived . . .
Spring in all her glory
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. ~Anne Bradstreet
In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt. ~Margaret Atwood
I spent my weekend gardening, motivated by the glorious weather and by the end of the day I had plenty of dirt under my fingers!! The garden was in much need of cleaning up after winter - pruning back the frost damaged plants (still more to do but the garden bin is full), weeding and a general cleanup. I also planted 3 pots with pansies which will add colour to the garden in the coming months and some more spinach. In early October we are having bark mulch delivered so I need to have the garden ready by then.
I know it is August when I see all the wattle in flower and what a gorgeous colour it is. Along many of our roads are wattle shrubs and how they brighten up a normally drab drive to work. However DH does not not like wattle at all - HAYFEVER. He couldn't understand why I wanted to take a photo of this "horrid" plant and put in on my blog!! In fact he isn't a fan of spring at all.
I really wanted to include some daffodils from my garden but none of the photos looked any good and I only have a few dozen - so these are not my daffodils (link) but you get the idea!!
So to all those living in Australia - welcome to spring
