Lovin' our garden in Spring! ♥


wandering out early in the morning...coffee in hand :)


sunlight through the leaves of the umbrella tree...


succulent colour burst on the front deck♥


wild sweet strawberries appear in unexpected places...little bursts of sunshine in our mouths x


agapanthus ready to bloom...


pretty pink roses down the side passage...


bring on the zucchinis!


last years spinach has sprung to life again and is snuggled next to bunches and bunches of self seeded coriander :)


baby sunflowers...can't wait to paint them!


a perfect caterpillar munched on love heart leaf!


blissed out bee inside a mulberry splattered arum lily ♥


mulberries galore!


and the occasional berry lovin' fairy♥


Birds of paradise outside Marco's recording studio...


and lilies outside mine♥


a wild untamed corner of nasturtiums and daisies!


Bottlebrush blossoming!

You have a very beautiful garden. I love the pink roses and the colorful lilies. The splash of color during spring is always something to look forward to. Great pictures, too!

Wow! It's amazing that you managed to maintain its beauty despite the countless plants you have on your yard. You seem to have spacious garden to mix those beauties together. For sure, butterflies roam in that area most often.

After seeing the photos, I was inspired to have a beautiful garden just like yours. Well, it is very common for a garden to have colorful plants and flowers, but in your case, you get to have fruits like wild strawberries in your garden as well. Nice one! Not only does it serve as a lovely attraction to your garden, but it can also satisfy your sweet cravings.

Your garden makes me feel relaxed. I should always take a look at this post whenever my eyes feel worn out from surfing the net. =) By the way, which of them is your favorite? If I were to choose, it’ll be those pink roses and spinach. It’s nice to see those unique roses, which also give a fragrant scent. And that spinach, well, it’s one of my favorites! It’s like having a source of vitamins and nutrients a few steps away from your door.
