    I thought I would share a picture of our very old cherry plum tree. It always has a lovely show of blossom just before the leaves come out. The blossom only lasts for a couple of days so we all really enjoy the view.

    That is so beautiful Aussie. I love Melbourne and would move there in a heartbeat.

    Summer arrived in the tropics today :thumbdown:

    Beautiful. Enjoy the season. Winter will be here soon and I am not really looking forward to it.
    Hugs.

    We have had a really cold winter in Melbourne this year so we are looking forward to a bit of warmth.

    I'm jealous.
    We're going into fall now.
    I love the springtime. Maybe I should spend spring/summer in northern hemisphere then again in the southern, and just skip fall and winter totally?
    Who'll put me up in Australia?

    Perfect day here in Dalby - the weather is starting to warm during the day but can get cold at night still - we have had some rain but not as much as country Victoria - we dont want anymore here for a few weeks so hubby can finish painting the house

    Your yard is so peaceful and inviting. On the coast of South Carolina we really don't get much fall. Still hot and the flowers still blooming but, you can tell they are going into fall mode. Happy spring to you.

    Lovely! :D

    We're starting to cool down here, but in NC we get a blissfully long fall, with warm and cool every few days until December.

    I'd love to have a cup o'tea on your patio...so pretty!

    Hi Aussie Thanks for sharing your lovely garden with us... I live in the southern hemisphere and it is spring here too. Love the season... We had a terrible winter too. We had black frost and it touched most of the trees that have never been touched by frost before... But we are seeing new leaves and buds on most of the trees now... Our peaches and almond trees are in full blossom and of course the orange trees..... ciao

    Beautiful picture!!

    I am slightly jealous also but.... since it is a little cool here lately I am planning my first pot of chili for dinner tomorrow evening. We only eat it when its cool outside and its one of my favortie meals, soafter a LONG SUPER HOT summer I can not wait for the cool weather to come back!

    I love the old tree and your garden. Is that an Orchid Cactus in the tree? What color? I have one that is bright pink. It is finished blooming for now. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your spring.

    Your picture is beautiful and although I love spring, our summer has been broiling so I am looking forward to fall and winter.
