September 2011 - One
Phew! Spring is Here

You have no idea how close a watch I keep on this ornamental vine,
searching for the slightest hint of bud burst to tell me that winter has allmost passed

Mum's dwarf irises and tulips are a constant reminder of how much I miss her

Bright colours to lift a gloomy day

The colour of the mauve native orchid blends beautifully with the azalea growing in the pot behind.
This azalea was grown from a cutting of a plant given to my father over fifty years ago,
and its flowers are highly perfumed - especially at night time.

Another transplanted bulb from Mum's garden.
I never lift the bulbs as I know I should, but they flower year after year for me anyway.
