These gorgeous blue anemone are blooming in my garden.
Yay for spring!
The bloom above is a double variety, whilst the others are single.
Apart from their stunning colour and simplicity, I adore the frilly leaf arrangement around their stems, like a ruffly collar.
I have orange ranuncs in the same bed but they haven't made an appearance yet.
It's always a little odd reading the northern hemisphere blogs to see them moving into autumn. Whilst I do love autumn I am very pleased we've moving into spring here in Aus.
That means summer wont be too far away!
And because they're blooming up a riot all over the backyard (and the colour matches the anemones), here are some beautiful Grape Hyacinths.
I think sometimes I give the impression (through my images) that my garden is always lush, not to mention vast. It's neither really. I just tend to do closeups so I don't have to show you the the unwanted slab of concrete, the dodgy, falling-down lean-to and so on. I think our block is about 750 sq metres with Molly's Maison right in the middle. It's a nice size, not too much garden to maintain and still quite a lot of lawn for Molly.
One day I might be brave and show you guys some of the dodgier bits :)
Well, TGIF. I'm hoping to do a bit of pottering about and get a bit of crafty action happening this weekend.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend too.
