The first tulip
In Australia they say to plants tulips around Mother’s Day. This year that was the 10th of May. It just so happens that this pots of tulips will probably be flowering perfectly on Father’s Day. Here that is September the 6th.
This tulip has just popped up. The timing is perfect. It’s the very start of Spring. I guess it has warmed up just enough.
and some blossom from the fruit tree
The fruit trees are also just starting to blossom. Every year it seems to me that just when the trees are at their showiest, it rains. For us that’s a blessing, but it always seems to knock the blossom off. Apparently we get most of our rain here in Spring, so that would explain it.
This is my peach tree.
