It's the middle of Springtime Downunder ... and here in my the north-east Oz garden there's lots of great colour right now. Almost every day there's another fantastic Oriental Lily bursting into bloom ... this is the first time I've grown them and I just adore their stunning colours and their perfume!
The Courtyard Garden is the place I'm spending all my free time over the semester break ... the colour out there is fantastic. The heady perfume of those Oriental Lilies wafts around on the breeze. There are butterflies fluttering around everywhere. It's the perfect spot to sit back ... and relax!
Springtime is a time when my husband and I do a lot of cleaning-up around our property ... picking up loads of discarded palm tree fronds, trimming back a lot of foliage and pulling out weeds in the outdoor garden beds. Some of this garden rubbish is used for mulching and some is thrown on the firepit. Over the last few weekends we've been doing a whole lot of cleaning up and the pile on the firepit was enormous! It was time for a bonfire ... our grandchildren who have been visiting during the school holidays sat mesmerised by the sight! There's just something about huge flames leaping into the sky!!!!!
