No winter lasts forever; no Spring skips it's turn. - Hal Boland

 Gustav Mahler said 'Spring won't let me stay in this house any longer. I must get out and breathe the air deeply again!', and I would add, especially if near jasmine. I am roaming the neighourhood streets on the dog walk, following my nose. The air is full of fragrant floral notes, leading me down back streets in order to get the full impact.

I've gone from lamenting missing the David Jones Flower Show and the cherry blossom at Fagan Park to revelling in the random blooms that surround me.

A riot of colour on the inner city streets delivers a beauty I previously never paid enough attention to. An abundance of sweet fragrance brings a joy to my weary heart. It's a small pleasure but it's something.

Mix in the warmth of the sun on my face and I've got plenty to smile about. 

Sometimes that's enough.

For those of us in lockdown with a small radius, it has to be.

'Spring will come and so will happiness. Hold on. Life will get warmer." Anita Krizzan

  1. Spring is my favorite season of all seasons. We're getting ready for fall. Right now we're in another heatwave. I'm so ready for some cooler weather.

    Have a fabulous day, Lydia. ♥

  2. Lovely flowers! I love spring, too. Here autumn is coming and we are expecting colder days.

  3. Beautiful spring bloomers, enjoy the spring. Here in Finland we are in the autumn with colorful foliage.

  4. Beautiful flowers, I love all the pretty colours of the seasons :) Thanks for linking up.

  5. Bei uns in Europa klopft der Herbst schon zaghaft an die Türe. Die Sommerblumen zeigen sich aber noch in voller Blüte. Bei ihren reizenden Fotos stimme ich Gustav Mahlers Ausspruch von Herzen zu!

  6. Beautiful flowers. We are just going into Spring here and there are lots of new blooms in my garden, luckily my roses have kept growing through Winter.

  7. Beautiful photos and a glorious riot of colour. Here in the UK we are going into Autumn and my garden has lost nearly all it's bright colours - this blog post has certainly brightened my day!

  8. Such beautiful flowers. Thanks for hosting this great party.

  9. Hello, I'm new here and I come from the Netherlands and saw your link through a friend that I also follow and I think your blog is very beautiful. And I do not has really a favorite season but if I will be asked this is autumn and spring because then there are always new beautiful colors.

  10. What a lovely collection of flowers, Lydia! Melbourne is full of Spring flowers too, at the moment, and our garden looks fantastic (yes we have four different kinds of jasmine!).

  11. Perhaps the flower scent is what we miss during the long winter.
    Lovely flowers!

  12. Wow ! Beautiful blooms, I am glad you were able to spot these incredible beauties on your way. Thanks for sharing with garden Affair.
