Hello Spring!!








Dear Spring, 
It's that time of year when the leaves begin to pop out from branched buds to wave a welcome as you approach. Shy bulb flowers start to show their faces. 
I love the way you arrive in a cloud of blossom, bearing armfuls of colourful flowers and a warm sunny smile. 
Your friends, the birds and butterflies, are always close on your heels and soon it's one big happy party complete with lively bird song and heavenly scented breezes.
 Even the sun stays up later and later to join in the fun. 
Dear Spring, I'm so happy that you've come to visit us again. 


Happy flowers to everyone!

  19. As always, I wish you were just next door. (Though if you were, you would be wishing for autumn rather than spring.) My dear florist, your flower posts are always a joy!

  20. Welcome to spring! What a delightful way to begin. The flowers in front of pocketful of posies are my absolute favourite pic in the post. We have an early scarlet poppy (just one)blooming at the moment. Our dear girl gravely inspects it. We have also just got spring chickens - 3 girls, Drusilla, Cassandra and Hetty Feather! Yay Spring.

  22. Particularly love that first pic, the one of the poppy! It is just right!
    Ranuncs and poppies are two of my fave flowers to photograph. Pity we are heading into winter here but that is how the cycle goes! No spring without winter!

  30. I'm looking forward to the Autumn equinox on September 23 here in Canada. These last few days of Summer have been lovely, we have a bit of rain today and a bit more of Autumn temperatures.

    I'm curious why you are saying it is the first day of Spring in Australia?

    1. Hi Sandi, in Australia our seasons begin with the beginning of the month, not by the equinoxes like some countries do. I'm not sure why it's different.

  31. Enjoy your spring, we are enjoying heading into fall. I prefer fall to winter for the color. Although the many shades of white in the mountain snows are pretty spectacular.
    Lovely flowers and words :-)
