If you’ve never experienced the joy of accomplishing more than you can imagine, plant a garden. – Robert Brault

One of the few entertainments I kept up from lockdown is the continual planting without purpose. I will plant for the sheer joy and entertainment of watching something grow. If it takes off I will move it into the garden or plant it on the nature strip out the front.

I've had to give away my idea of chickens because of the lead all over Sydney but these little gems, as not really eaten (or never producing enough to really eat more than a tiny bite - and from a pot so not in contaminated soil) bring a smile to my face as they begin to flower.

As I'm a little careless with the seasonal rules, I am feeling this is a sign Spring is coming...given the chill still in the air at times, I'll take what I can get.

What are the signs for you that the season is changing?

  1. Sadly while we are renting there is less desire to do up someone elses garden but I am looking forward to growing roses again.

  2. Spring is coming? Oh, you live on the other side of the world. Here it is summer and fall will come soon. Beautiful litte plants - we don´t have a garden but a greening place.
    All the best -Violetta

  3. Now at our new home in Connecticut USA the sunset is now creeping southward. It will be almost due west of our best vantage point on the first day of autumn. I expect that the tree leaves with begin to change to bright fall colors

  4. So very nice. If the San Francisco Bay Area, the weather gets better in September and October. Weird but it is way it is. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

  5. ...I love the Nasturtium, they remind my of of my grandmother. Thanks for hosting the party.

  6. Don't you just love Spring in the garden, Lydia? :-)

  7. Seeing new roots and blooms are wonderful!. I don't do very well as far as gardening is concerned. But I see progress; I used to have a black thumb. :D

    As for the season -- its still very hot and dry in our part of California. Can't wait for cooler weather!

    Thank you so much for hosting, Lydia. :)
