Our long established cherry trees have burst into flower this week. The warmer weather has arrived and the garden is returning to life.

My work is keeping me trapped inside for the bulk of the day but, when I can in the late evening, I am outside.

Native Australian Flowers

Radiant native Australian flower

Megan had a surprise farewell lunch at work and brought home a beautiful native Australian flower arrangement. Having grown up on the other side of the planet, this arrangement was a delight to see and touch. Plants in Australia tend to be much more hardy; they have thicker and broader leaves to cope with the harsh sun and dry regions.
