It is still windy and we had very little rain but early this morning the sun was out and I wandered around with Max and my camera taking photos of what I think will be very fleeting flowers in the garden.
I really wish we had lovely long spring weather but it is always interspersed with wind and heat which makes things go off so quickly and before I know it I will be lugging hoses around.
The peacocks are calling, lizards are on the pots, how I would love for them to be bright green like the ones we saw in Italy.
My lemon tree is laden and the geranium maderense is flowering with its huge purple heads of flower. The redbottle brush is flowering and attracting the honey eaters, the crab apple is out as is the old persian lilac and I even found a flower on a small azalea.
Then we went in for a walk along the road at the bottom of the Bluff, we havent been there for ages but it was a bit more sheltered from the wind, sea and clouds and rocks. Magic.
Take it all while I can.
