In the Kettles’ garden

While I was staying up with Ma Kettle last week, I spent some time wandering the garden. With Spring on its way, there are plenty of new shoots, new flowers and new growth on nearly every plant.

It’s such a pretty colour; I tried to take a pic of the actual flower, but it hasn’t turned out that well…….

It’s a glorious Spring day here in Melbourne town, and on my walk this morning it was a bittersweet feeling to find that the blossom of a week ago is rapidly disappearing to be replaced by leaves. It’s so quick, isn’t it, that transition from blossom to leaves – blink and you miss it! Mind you, just add aqua, which is the colour of the sky today, and you have my fav colours; aqua, pink, green, with a dash of white.
