The Sun has been Shining

I took my camera out into the garden while the sun was shining. I am amazed that at the start of Spring I have so much flowering. The first photo shows the Spider Magnolia, a soft pink with a delicate flower. The deep pink flowers are a Salvia. It only flowers through the Winter and is 7' to 8' tall. I think the birds have been trying to get nectar from the flowers because a number of the stems are leaning well over.

The blue Echiums are out and will be buzzing with bees soon.

The Camellia bush was here when we moved in and all I've ever done to it, is a heavy prune every second year.

This is a flowering Almond, all for show, once a year. The netting below is an extension to the vegie garden and it's the only way we've  managed to keep the possums out. 

This is my Blueberry bush. It usually sits on the verandah but I moved it while the blossom is out so I don't knock it off and lose the fruit.

and my Cyclamen sitting outside my sewing room window.

Oh what lovely flowers do you have, I love the almondtree and the beauty of your other flowers! Enjoy spring! Here autumn has arrived with rain and stormy weathers, I envy you for living in the springtime now! Enjoy!

What beautiful plants and flowers, mine are all dying off, getting too cool at night. I still have veggies growing, but need a few hot sunny days for my tomatoes.

What a beautiful garden you have! There are no gardeners in my family and I have no clue where to begin. I long for a garden where I can just lose myself.

Lovely Gardens!
My yellow lily's just started, and the purple Azelea finsihed.
Had good luck turning my hydrangeas blue this year.
Thanks for taking us on a garden walk!
