    This picture is so warm and 'homey' I feel like you live right next door...

    Love your tree... and the garden looks so peaceful. Spring has sprung here in Western Australia...some beautiful sunny days but really cold dry nights and mornings. As Litacats mentioned hardly any rain this winter, so I am mulching as much as I can so the plants will have half a chance of survival this summer. I think we are in for a long, dry time and with water restrictions getting more stringent I am planting more waterwise natives.

    Oh boy I would love spring but here in the tropics we just get a wet and a dry season. I'm already thinking about turning on the AC, getting a bit humid in Far North Queensland

    Wow Jackie that is beautiful, can't believe it's spring there, it's just cooling down going into fall here. I dread the winter. Do you have bad winters there?

    I live in Minnesota and we are beginning to see the leavs turning red and yellow. It's a beautiful time of the year but I like spring better. Enjoy the blossoms.

    Hi Aussie - Nice to have the sun out for a bit. Drought or no drought I've seen enough rain to last for a while.

    Enjoy your spring blossoms - mine are a bit slower coming out but it won't be long.
