The Sweet Promise of Springtime

A morning walk around my garden on the last day of July

So many signs of promise and a colourful Springtime ahead

I'd love to get out and play in my garden, but it's just too cold, and I have lots of sewing to do inside by the fire.

It is amazing just how many things can flower in our cold winter gardens......but I'm with you, it's a bit too cold to be out there today.

Great crisp clear photos. I am loving your Spring flowers.
I have spent many days last week crocheting by ~ the air conditiiner. We had a heat wave.
It was however gorgeous comfy gardening weather today.

You have so many beautiful flowers in your garden. I only have a few grevilleas but they do flower nearly all the time.

It is hard not to wish spring would hurry up, but summer can dawdle. Fickle wishes. Talk this weekend!

Lovely selection. Is that dark mauve a fritillai?
Probably spelt wrongly!
