Here in Perth, Western Australia Spring is finally here and my garden is full of life and all the flowers are in bloom. This is a garden that Dad and I started a few years ago with a lot of hard work digging out a lot of lawn and then mulching as we put plants in. Now it has developed more to have shrubs and succulents, the honeybees native to the area love it and when I went to photograph it today they gathered around me.
It can be seen from our front window of our house and never fails to put a smile on my face and others to see all those flowers nodding in the spring sunshine. It is getting warmer, but still cooler nights prevail at this time of year. We are still having rainy days and then you see all the flowers close up tight to keep the rain out.
The days are getting longer and the sun is up earlier in the mornings. Blue skies stretch out yonder and you have a sky again after grey skies have been the norm for winter. Every where you look there is colour and life blooming out of every corner and you suddenly have a smile on your face and don’t quite know why that is so ?
I love the spring weather we get before the heat of our long hot summers here in Perth, Western Australia. Spring is colourful and bright, whereas summer is in your face like an over zealous toddler. So now I come out of my indoor hibernation and enjoy the outdoors and my favourite place Fremantle in the Springtime. There is nothing better than a sunset in Perth, Western Australia over the Indian ocean.
