A garden tour......almost Spring

Yesterday the Cancer Council of Australia held its annual Daffodil Day.  This bunch is brightening my home today in support of the Cancer Council.  Let's hope a cure is found for this awful disease soon.

We have been in the garden all day today.  It was beautiful.  If anything, taking part in the Carnival of Flowers Garden Competition ensures at least one huge clean up each year!!  I am so pleased with how it is all coming along again.

Bees by the hundred, busy in the lavender.

Twenty pots, ready to spread around the garden and the paved area.

The peas and the sweet peas are growing madly.  I am so looking forward to picking a large bunch of beautiful sweet peas to bring inside.

I am so enjoying the view into the vege patch.  Everything is looking so healthy and lush. 

I just love the beautiful furry Poppy heads ready to burst open.

Spring was definately in the air today.  It was a beautiful day, just a little cool in the breeze, but a wonderful day to be in the garden.
