My favourite season began officially on Tuesday.
A special friend from Cape Town asked for pictures of flowers, so here they are.
This winter has been very dry but these plants seem to tolerate the drought.
I don't remember seeing so many of these last year when my neighbours took me walking along beautiful routes that I didn't know existed so near to home.
A close up.
Fig trees sprouting leaves and fruit!
Bees happily visiting blooms.
Mimosa tree high on a hill
Lavender in my garden
Soon my enormous orange tree will smell heavenly, covered in orange blossom. Can't wait!
