Spring is really in full swing here and we have been watching this blossom tree just 2 doors along from us quite quickly come into bloom over this past week. Just when I thought it had finished coming out the next day it would look even more beautiful.
It is quite a large tree but I have no idea what sort of tree it is but a good one to play under for the neighbourhood kids when in the heat of summer it provides some welcome shade.
As you can see I took a few photos of it on Saturday which was a nice warm spring day, perfect for being outside in the garden.
These 'Clivia' flowers dotted around our backyard garden are providing a lovely splash of warm colour everywhere.
A delicate blue Japanese iris just coming into flower. These plants love the shade so last year I transplanted a whole bunch of these underneath the tall redwood trees at the back of our property.
Pink and red Azalea's flowering underneath our loaded Lemon tree.
A Magnolia bloom

These tiny camera shy flowers were given to us from my late father-in-law and I think they are a native little orchid. Whatever they are I like them for their sweet size and colour.
What's flowering in your garden this season?
