Yellows and Pinks in Spring

Spring in the garden is a simply marvelous season! New growth and blooms and the energy of the cycle of life seems to be bursting forth everywhere!

The yellow daisies around the corner and the bright pink of the Indian Hawthorn at our front door are welcoming the bees too.

When I started it I had no idea where this journey would take me. All I knew is that I wanted to share what I cared about. It was an opportunity to document what I see and what moves me.

It is still that today.

Indian Hawthorn

Indian Hawthorn (Rhaphiolepsis indica) is an evergreen shrub with pretty pink blooms. I’ve heard that the fruit is edible when cooked, and can be used to make jam but I have not tried it myself. The blooms appear to fade so some of them look white against the fresher deeper pink blooms.

Flowers in the rain

We had some desperately needed rain showers today and I dodged the raindrops to take a few pics of the droplets on the blooms. Then got cold and ran inside for a nice warm cup of tea!

Exploring the neighbourhood

A few flowers had caught my attention on the school run but I was always rushing so had no time to stop and appreciate them.  So I decided to take my camera for a walk and left the kids with my hubby. This is what I found.
