Around the grounds: Mid Spring

The garden is awash with colour at the moment: yellow, pink, light and dark green, purple, white – it’s a picture. Thought you might fancy a walk around?

The yellow banksia roses that grow all down the drive popping in and out of the hedge and front gate are in full bloom in the most delicious buttery yellow.

The cherries out the front are popping pink buds everywhere with the fresh new green leaves following not long after. The petals leave a blanket of prettiness underneath.

The clematis around three corners of the house are in bloom, or just about to pop. The pink takes me breath away every time I walk through the front door under it’s grand entrance way.

I’ve had some late jonquils pop up which has been a great thrill for me. I’ve never attempted bulbs before and I’m sure next year I’ll get them in sooner and hopefully have plenty more daffs and tulips.

Lavender’s sweet perfume is released every time you brush past it.

The white wisteria popping through slowly, slowly.

And the green leaves on the ornamental pear the prettiest of fresh spring greens.

And before my very eyes…the grass, weeds, trees, and hedges popping up new growth at a rate I can barely keep up with!

Also! I announced the winners of the $50 Itunes vouchers on the Bisolvin post and one of the winners was Debxoxo – if this is you can you email me your address? Thanks!
