Although those on the other side of the world may well be just waking up, we have spent the day gardening. Perth’s weather has moved into spring mode and three hours of weeding restored our beds to respectability.
The flowers are bursting with the joy of spring and I am delighted to say that after years of disappointment our mandarin, orange and lemon trees look set to have bumper crops if the blossoms are any indication.
This is another one of the photos I took at King’s Park where the Western Australian wild flowers continue to bloom prolifically.
If you find all this rather sappy then keep in mind that it is also poisonous snake season as well as magpie swooping season so if you let your weeds grow too high in your garden you may well wind up with a deadly snake and its dear little babies clamping onto your fingers as you reach down to remove a stubborn dandelion and then, as you lift up your eyes to heaven to pray for assistance, have one of them pecked out by a territorial magpie intent on protecting its infants.
Ahhh Austrailia. Perfect one day, deadly the next.
