Budding

I guess I've been rather out of touch with the garden and its seasons lately. When I did a big day of weeding on Sunday, I was surprised to find that the dwarf nectarine tree at the back of the garden is budding already. I love the tiny burst of pink against the grey-brown. I'd like to try for something like that in my dye pot. Dyeing isn't high on today's priorities, though. I have my budding home improvement projects to care for instead. The plans are nearly ready to go to Council. And I have to keep weeding through my accumulated craft and sewing collections to see what earns a place in my new studio.

Everything is blooming at the moment. Cherry blossoms are especially beautiful as well as a big ol' magnolia tree we pass on our way to kinder. Spring is certainly in the air!

Funny, I've seen the cherry blossom too, and admired the magnolias, but hadn't thought the nectarine would be so early. Shows how much I (don't) know about gardens, really.

yes it is definately begininng to look and feel like spring. :) I do love seeing all the buds coming out and the sudden burst of new growth... not so keen on the additional mowing though.
