On my side of the world spring is really getting into its stride. I've been away for a week
of our school spring holiday and seen some beautiful gardens, one of my favourite coastlines, and a lighthouse - of which more later.
For now I want to post some photos I took an hour ago in my own garden. I love dwarf Japanese maples, and just as they have stunning autumnal colours, they also have lovely foliage in the spring, albeit in less intense shades. Here are 5 of my little trees:
As well, the wisteria is out,
the jasmine has begun sending its sweet smell around the garden:
the pink leaves of the 'Toon' tree (cedrela sinensis) are sprouting
and Mr A has planted 36 precious tomato plants, each one carefully protected against predations by the resident cat and dog ;)
You can bury a lot of troubles digging in the dirt.
