I love the perfume of the plants now flowering, the abundance of blossoms on the fruit trees, vege plants and the vines, all promising fruit, veges and nuts in the future. I love the happy warmth of Spring days that makes everything we do so much more comfortable. It is really good to put away the woolies and change to light, cotton clothing.
Here are some photos that celebrate the Spring Equinox -
shoots on the grape vine
masses of highly perfumed flowers on the macadamia tree
new leaves bursting open on the fig tree
port wine magnolia - divine perfume on a warm day
My favourite seasons are the gentle ones - Spring and Autumn. I fully appreciate the purpose of the cycle of seasons and celebrate them all, but I do tend to hide away from the extremes of heat and cold.
