Spring is just around the corner

A lovely day today in the hills surrounding Adelaide, a little cold though. The plum trees are about to burst into bloom and it looks as if we will have heaps of plums by Christmas time.
The jonquils are blooming along the driveway, the Erlicheer variety are a little later than the common type.
Yellow jonquils and the Paperwhites (last blog) are the first to bloom so these are a tad 'past it'
The Almond trees, very neglected, are flowering, although we never get any nuts from these trees because the parrots always get them while they are still un-ripe.
I managed to hobble up the driveway to take these photos, so my mobility must be getting better. Hooray, at last, for that.

Well done getting up your driveway. I so appreciate your lovely photos.

Here we are in the middle of a fine spell that will last at least until Wednesday. And the sun is high enough in the sky that it shines down on "our" bed in the afternoon, to that cat's delight.

Enjoy the scent from your jonquils,

care and huggles, Michelle and Zebbycat, xxx and purrrrrumbles

I can never tell the difference between the different types of jonquils, (apart from colour that is) spring is certainly just around the corner.
