I love this time of your. The bees come out of their winter slow down, animals are lively and creating young, plants are budding. The days are starting to grow longer. There’s so much life, activity and potential being thrust into the world.
We have a lot of lavender in the yard and I’ve noticed the bee activity has started to increase. They love the pink lavender so much that the plant looks like it’s alive with their movement. The roses have started, the stone fruit trees have burst into flower. The Australian natives started flowering in winter and have moved into the deeper colours that arrive with spring.
I’m eagerly awaiting the bluebells. They’re possibly my favourite plant in the garden. They appear for such a short time every year, but absolutely adore them.
It’s sowing time for lots of vegetables. Lots of things to be done, or needing attention outside.
Fingers crossed the spring fever infuses me and I can get Addy finished soon!!
