If you've been reading Threading My Way for a while, you'll know that I divide most of my spare time between sewing and gardening. Lately, gardening has been winning in the time stakes. It's now the second day of Spring, so that will probably continue until the weather warms up, which won't be long.
Today I thought I'd show you some pics of my Spring garden, taken today...
Living in Australia, I had to show you at least one photo with Eucalyptus trees (Gum trees). This is the view from our back patio.
My garden is a mix of natives and exotics. Can't beat these daisies which self seed each year.
Cliveas are great for dry, shady spots. Unfortunately, caterpillars also like them and this is one of the few remaining clumps that wasn't eaten.
Our view right down the back of the block. Mr TMW is clearing this section now.
Strelitzias (Bird of Paradise) actually flower in Winter, but the flowers last a long time into Spring.
A Slipper orchard given to me as a birthday present this year.
One of my favourite shady spots in the garden. When I'd only been blogging for a few months, I wrote A Little Bit About Me, which contains more photos.
I'll be adding my Spring garden to the Spring has Sprung link party. Jane and Cass are running a week long blog series, celebrating Spring in the Southern Hemisphere.
Spring is my favourite time of the year, due to the glorious weather and longer days that I can spend in my garden. Autumn is a close second. What's your favourite time of year?
