Awakenings

The rain stopped on Friday and the weather was lovely on the weekend, not very warm, but nice spring weather.

Our garden is starting to wake up with our first iris out.

The quince is starting to unfurl its leaves in readiness for the beautiful soft pink flowers. I love how the leaves and stems are slightly furry.

The bees were busy in the apricot tree, providing a constant gentle hum.

The nectarine is just starting to come into blossom.

The bees were also busy in the bulbs.

And our big wattle in the back yard is lovely and golden. The blossoms are so soft and fuzzy and full of bees too.

Now we are back to the working week and it is starting to rain again.

Lovely pics Janice, the only thing that has woken in my garden is the bl**dy clover. Makes our lawn look very green :(
