There are many joys waiting in the Spring garden. The most important one for me is sitting on a log watching it all go by.
There is Zen somewhere between chickens scratching at the ground and the hum of a city carried by the wind. Nectar feeding birds fight for the highest branches of the Banksia tree, while below, bees and flies swarm over bushes of lavender and stinging nettle.
Closest to where I sit is a four year old tree, a favorite. In place of white flowers are tiny green welts on stalks, which will swell over several months into the dark purple of a Stella Cherry.
In between those moments was the welcome task of of image gathering – here are some to share with you. From a lovely Melbourne Spring.
