As we enter the final month of Winter here, there is much beginning to happen which leads me to ponder the Spring to come. The days are longer now, the sky is a clear and cloudless blue and the air has the touch of a new season's warmth. Many plants are offering up a promise of emerging goodness that we'll enjoy as the season turns.
The beginnings of a strawberry in the centre of its sweet white flower.
A small, bright green snow pea will grow bigger with time.
Flower clusters are forming on our avocado tree!!
Carrot-topped Queen Anne's Lace is popping up everywhere with self-seeded randomness.
Waxy, pink curls spring forth on a native Grevillea.
Blueberry blooms hint at the delicious blue fruit to come.
A cluster of unripe cherry tomatoes will soon blush red.
A bean plant sends out a tiny tendril, aiming skywards.
A hint of vibrant blue in the tightly formed bud of a cornflower.
What is emerging in your garden right now? Are you feeling the hint of the new season to come?
