The weather here in Adelaide over the last few days has been cold, damp and depressing even though I know the tanks are filling and the garden is being refreshed. Yesterday I read one of the Slow Gardeners posts which pointed me towards Garden Bloggers Bloom Day and I was inspired to go out and take a look at my dismal garden. What I found amazed me, amongst all the other blooms I found the first Jonquil, first Snowfalke and first Wattle. The poor Wattle looked very miserable and should have stayed inside its buds until the sun came out again.
If I had been asked how many plants I thought were flowering in my garden at the moment I would have said maybe half a dozen but below are photos of the ones I found. The plum is included because it has formed at completely the wrong time and the Lilly Pilly fruit just because they’re gorgeous.
