Spring is here

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.

 Colourful fields

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!
