Yay Spring is here and we've actually had a few warm (ish) days lately which has been lovely after a very wet and cold winter. We don't have alot of flowers in our garden but I noticed yesterday that we actually had a quite a few flowers around the house so I thought I'd take some pics.
Daffodils from the Tauranga Farmers Market hubby and the girls went to yesterday morning.
Daphne - my favourite flower for its scent- I planted two plants last year so this is their first year flowering
Wild jasmine picked from the side of the road
Lavender and daisies from our garden
And this lovely line of trees is at a community garden just down the road from our place where people can buy lots and grow their own vegetables, herbs and flowers- a man there said one more week and these trees will be bursting with blossoms so will have to take another pic then!
This flower was in someone's plot- isn't it stunning- can anyone tell me the name of it?
and I made these little felt 'flowers' the other day after seeing a big vase of them in the Moochi store here in Tauranga- you just cut three hearts for each flower out of felt and stick them onto a twig- there's a tutorial on the Moochi blog I discovered via pinterest.
And here's a couple of lovely Spring themed art works from the artist Katie Daisy- I love her work. Check out her website or Etsy store and she's on Facebook too.
Love this 'Wonderful World' print too, especially after seeing this youtube clip I shared on my facebook page last night
Happy Spring (or Autumn for you northern hemisphere readers- love that season too!)
