Thursday in my spring garden

This spring we have our fair share of rain and thunderstorms. However, sunny days like today bring out the beauty of our native flowering trees and plants...






The yellow is the wattle, the lilac is the jacaranda, the red is the bottle-brush. We don't know what the pretty orange ones under the jacaranda tree are called, but they come and greet us every year.

In my younger days I used to play with the fallen flowers of the jacaranda and bottle brush. Now I am not so interested in the flowers, although I still climb the trees occasionally. The favourite activity of this granny cat is....



Basking in the sun, of course!

Everything looks gloriously lush and warm! We wish we could speed through winter here in the northern hemisphere and get back to Spring and summer! :-)

The Spring colours look lovely. We wish we were going into Spring and not Winter.

Considering we have no leaves on our trees anymore and all our plants are pretty much dormant now, we love seeing all your pretty plants and trees.

What a pretty spring garden! I'm sure a lot of the kitty gardeners in the northern hemisphere are a little envious of you today, Momo!

You're so fortunate that you're coming into spring now. Look at all the pretty colours in your garden! At least we, in North America, can all live vicariously through your pictures. It'll help us get through winter. Thanks.

How nice to see these beautiful pictures. Our trees are the opposite of yours and not pretty at all right now. I am glad you can get outside and get some warm sun rays on you.

Thank you for sharing the photos of the plants in your area! They are very different than what we see here.

And you look very lovely basking in the sunshine!
