June Blooms

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.

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”

Does this ring any bells with you?
