Spring blows in to Perth..



Yesterday was the official first day of spring.. not that you would know it! As I type now the wind is howling outside my window and la pluie has fallen steadily from the sky for most of the day, the top temperature not quite making 17C. The spring flowers however cannot be fooled.. the star jasmine adorning the pool fence has burst into flower, the lavender following close behind.. the perfume from both a heady mix..  


Although the bonsai azalea below has no perfume it more than makes up for it visually. I am definitely not complaining, it will be a long hot summer so the cool can hang around as long as it wants :) Looking forward to seeing the Wildflower Festival in Kings Park. Happy weekend, take care and whatever you are up to, stay safe...

  3. It is 16˚C here but sunny so it is a beautiful day although a bit cool for this time of year! Our flowers are starting to wind down as the days get shorter.

  9. The perfume of lavender blossom and leaves is so beguiling, lovely. It's around 17C here too, but we will be heading ion the other temperature direction from you soon.

  11. The azalea is certainly vivid. Maybe the phrase 'Send it down Louie', when you want it to rain comes from la pluie?

  12. How nice to be able to enjoy your spring. We have to slog through a couple of seasons before we get there again. It's interesting to see your lavender starting to bloom. Ours here doesn't start showing blossoms until we're into summer.

  16. Enjoy the Spring festival Grace, hopefully I'll still get to see the end of it. After a couple of rainy days the Sun has come out in force, it's 34 today here in Lisbon!
