In honour of this my 1000th post I have decided to start a Friday flowers feature where I will try my best to share some of the flowers in my garden with you each Friday. As it is warming up there should be no shortage for the coming months.
The maple tree is starting to get its leaves and is covered with its tiny red flowers that a lot of people don't even know exist, they are taken as red tips of new foliage growth from a distance.
Oh the Grevillias! I'm noting the flowers on the shrubs to be blooming profusely right now and I adore these types of flowers for their intricate design, all miniature works of art.
Blossoms! Pink, white and red. Some are just finishing, some are just starting and these are putting on a show. This tree does not bear fruit - it hasn't in the years we have been here but all of our other blossoming trees do.
This gorgeous flowering vine which I suspect is some type of clematis but actually have no real idea, its flowers are uniquely intriguing in each of its stages, the green of its prettily shaped leaves is so fresh and sweet, these tiny hanging clusters I admit to be one of my favourite things in our garden.
This is a bulb. I'm not sure I have seen these flowers before ( new things appear here all the time ) I suspect its a daffodil of some kind, its smaller than most daffodils but bigger than a jonquil and its scent so very sweet, I love jonquils fragrance but its even better than them!
If you can help me identify any of the unknowns I'd love some help :)
I'm sending out this little symbol of love as thanks to everyone who stops by and lets me know they were here! I love the community of people who share, inspire and connect through their Blogs. Its you guys who are out there posting and especially the lovely people who are reading and appreciate this peek into my world that keep me recording beautiful snapshots of my imperfect, happy life. xx
Its Friday night, which is movie night here I have Pizza dough on the rise and am looking forward to a somewhat busy but also snugly weekend with my kiddos!
Thanks again for stopping by sweet readers!
