Gardens of Delight

Spring has sprung
with a vengeance and Melbourne is full of breathtaking
surprises everywhere I turn.

The garden around our house is full of exciting little surprises every day. Matt and I don't want to get the lawn mowed because we don't want to kill any of the pretty flowers that are coming sprouting from the lawn (they're freesias I think. We also have Calla Lillies and the gardens around have nerines, daffodils, early cheer and jonquils. There are bulbs that I can't name in our front beds that look a little bit like kangaroo paws but came up so quickly.

Our vegetable garden has gone crazy and the peas grew so big that they toppled over their support in some strong wind. We harvest herbs on a daily basis and the garden provides all our leafy greens for salads and sandwiches.

We are very proud to present our first broccoli and are keeping our fingers crossed that we get it before any bugs find it and eat it! Our sugar snap peas and broad beans are covered in flowers and soon we'll have them coming out our ears.

Life is good:)
