Spring Growth

By Alternativeeden @markngaz

For all intentions I was hoping to snap a few more photos today for this blog post about some of the exciting spring growth happening in our garden this week. However the weather has turned from gloriously sunny and bright to gray and drizzly, not conducive to taking photos.

Still I'm glad it is rainy. I don't mind it being rainy on weekdays whilst at work. And besides, it's much better for the garden to have bouts of rainy days interspersed with sunny ones. I'll have to make do with the very few I managed to take last weekend... Spring Growth Loving the dainty new growth of Acacia pravissima. Mind you the old growth ain't too bad either. Spring Growth This climber took awhile to get going but this Holboellia coriacea looks like it's set to romp away this year, and put on a spectacular show of blooms too. Spring Growth All our tree ferns are showing signs of movement as well but the potted ones like this Cyathea cooperi are expectedly ahead. They did overwinter indoors. Spring Growth And Saxifraga stolonifera seems set to conquer a large area. Easy enough to pull them out where they are not wanted and how could one not love their bright spring colour? Next weekend is forecast to be sunny again, and better opportunity for taking more photos! Mark :-)
