Spring has arrived

Hi everyone, hope your all feeling on top of the world where ever you maybe.
We have had beautiful sunshine this week ,to say the least was to nice to stay indoors . I spent a few hours around my sister Pauline's on the weekend helping plant her wheelbarrow with succulents, then back home to spend a couple hrs to do a little weeding in my garden.

Now a few photo's

I think I'll move in with you to experience Spring again! lol Although, I must admit I love Autumn as well so I'm enjoying the cooler days we're having right now:-) What a great idea to make a little garden inside a wheelbarrow...it looks wonderful. Your flowers are just gorgeous as well and I especially love the Camellias, such pretty flowers!! Good luck with your bowling:-) xoxo

The flowers look great. You are starting to have Spring and Fall is nipping at us. Leaves are beginning to fall on the porch and lawn. I love the wheel barrel. I guess you will just have to pop over to the States and give me a hand with mine, next Spring. Peace

Jen, I'm so envious. I looooove snowdrops and you have such a lovely patch of these beautiful little flower. We can't grow them here, too hot, although after this winter, I'm not so sure now.

Hi Jeanette,

Ooh, what pretty flowers.

In my area daffodills are the harbingers of spring.

May your flowers bloom and flurish this spring and summer. As for us it's fall.

Dear Jan ~~ Nice post with lovely photos of you and Pauline and the beautiful flowers. I recognize the Camellias that Pauline brought me. Love the speckled one too and you did a great job with the wheel-barrow.It looks great complete with frogs. The zygo is lovely. I don't know why your comments wouldn't stick, most
annoying. Thanks for the visit and I am glad you liked seeing my plants and the Fairy Garden. Still only the one light working. My friend Lorraine and I are going to try to get batteries for the other couple. Take great care my friend and don't overdo.Love, Merle.

One of the advantages of blogging is to know bloggers whose seasons are so different from mine. As you head into Spring, we here in Northern California are beginning to see the first signs of the Autumn which will soon come. Trees that bore beautiful white flowers now carry branches filled with apples. I enjoy your pictures of flowers and of you and Pauline reading to plant them.

Such pretty flowers and succulents. I have to say that after it reaching 32C with a humidex of 38C today that the pool looks pretty good to me, though I imagine the water is still pretty chilly there.

Hope you're having a good week, and have a great weekend! :o)

Love and hugs,

Diane

It is so annoying - I recognise that flower you are asking about, but for the life of me, I can't remember what it is called. Pity my friend Helen isn't still blogging - she would know. I'll see if I can get her to have a look and identify it for you, if you don't already have an answer.

I love the wheelbarrow full of succulents and frogs. You have such a green thumb and I really enjoy pictures of your flowers. And you and Pauline both look so very pretty posing with your latest creation.

Oh, how great it is Spring where you are. We are experiencing Fall weather. But, I'm not complaining, I love Autumn...All the seasons have their beauty. And I must say your flowers are beauties.

Have a lovely Spring...

Hi Jen,
You and Pauline did a great job with the wheelbarrow garden. I loved seeing all the flowers of springtime that you have blooming. Our garden is really finishing now although I still have bits of color here and there..
Lovely to see your part of the world!
