Nature and Spring

It's well and truly Spring. Now that we are surrounded by the Bush and Nature I realise that I don't really miss the tall concrete 'communist block' buildings that is city living. One might even go so far as to say that I have taken up gardening, at least I water the garden everyday. I'm trying to use it as a relaxation thing but I'm still having trouble letting go of the work I could be doing instead of gardening. Bubby makes it fun though as he loves getting wet under the garden hose and listening to his squeals is relaxing. I also generally don't like getting wet or dirty. I was thinking that the garden needs rose bushes and they simply won't plant themselves. There are also a lot of ferns surrounding the pool and I don't like them. I just don't like prehistoric plants with fronds. Plants should have proper flowers and leaves and branches.

Bubby vs giant fern

Bubby vs garden steps

Bubby vs succulent

Aren't the colours just pretty?


Don't know what plant this is but I can say that it's looking much healthier and bloomier since I bought a longer garden hose so I can actually water it. I just can't be bothered to take another photo.

Don't know what this is either but it lines the front of the garden and the side driveway (the other side driveway that I haven't photographed.) 

Don't know what plant this is either but it's pretty.

I also have a magnolia tree that was in full bloom but I didn't take a photo because I thought it will be flowering all spring but now there's only one flower left. Oh well.

View from the kitchen window. Spot the rainbow lorikeet.

Spring blossoms look pretty and make the ground look like it's covered in snow but they're not so good for the pool. Look at that giant ugly frond, actually it's a stem but it has fronds and it freaks me out.

Still Life according to Bubby.

There's one thing I'll miss about winter:
It will be a cool day tomorrow maybe I can whip out my boots one last time this year.
