I love spring. It’s absolutely my favourite time of year. The weather is starting to warm up and the bulbs are out, the plum and cherry trees are blossoming their little hearts out, the willows are wearing pale green lace. It’s just such a pretty time, I thought I’d share it with you all out there in Blogland.
I had a wander through the Orange Botanical Gardens yesterday, just for you.
Crabapples: red above, and white below
Not sure what these are, but they are pretty.
I love tulips. I used to loathe them and all they stood for (I grew up in Bowral, so tulips meant being inundated with camera toting tourists for two weeks every year), but since we moved away I’ve forgiven them for past crimes, and we are good friends now.
These are Grape Hyacinths growing wild in my backyard, overlooking a bowl of Heirloom 12ply superwash merino in shades 760 (red), 787 (navy) and 799 (pea green), destined for Baby Surprise Greatness. The colours aren’t very accurate – it seems the morning sun is a bit much for the yarn (although the grass and hyacinths are right on the money). The bowl is a hand-thrown lovely from Carcoar Pottery.
This ball of Tofutsies followed me home. It wants to be Christmas socks for someone.
And last, but by no means least, it is 10.14am on Saturday and I am 257 people away from my Ravelry invite! I will be there any minute, baby!
