Spring has finally arrived here in the Western Cape, South Africa. As if Mother Nature flipped a switch, the days are warm and the sun is melting the snow of the far mountain pecks. The gardens are excited to get going and we can feel the rush of spring.
“Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love! ” – Sitting Bull
Here’s what’s blooming in Christine’s garden in September 2012
It’s wonderful to be able to walk around outside again, barefoot and warmed by the suns rays and admiring the plants as they wake up from their rest. Every day brings new surprises like the tiny first blooms of the Ipheon, the Azaleas loud statement in bright pink and the more subtle blooms of the many white flowers I have all over the garden. And I’m happy as a lark being able to rush off to nurseries to see whats new in store. Happy Days!
That’s it from Claremont in Cape Town, lets see whats happening in Barbie’s garden in Philly …
Here’s what’s blooming in Barbie’s garden in September 2012
This is my favourite time of the year! The fields are teeming with wild flowers and the farm fields are bright with Canola yellow! But the best part is that my little garden has finally woken from its deep sleep. The thrill of new sprouts and shoots and blossoms …. there are old bulbs that have come up again and looking as fresh as ever!! Buffy will guide you through the garden…
There is so much colour – I am surprised! I was never a big flower gardener, and now I am loving all the bright blooms! Guess we all evolve.
