Goodbye Winter. Hello Spring!

The scent of jasmine fills the air. Frangipani buds begin to swell on dry twiggy stems. Mozzies and midges descend at twilight to feast upon tasty bared skin. And parents of small children sigh with resignation as they are woken earlier and earlier each day. Yes folks, it can only mean one thing. Soon the streets will be lined with a purple carpet of jacaranda petals and kookaburras will be waking us up at 4.30am. Welcome to Springtime in Brisbane, where Winter has already been well and truly elbowed aside by the sprightly season of frivolity.

Of course, nothing says Spring like flowers and butterflies - so harness your inner Wordsworth and enjoy a frolic through this gorgeous garden of Springtime goodies :)

Spring *is* sprung. Belated pinch and a punch etc. Thanks for popping my daisy satchel up. Can't wait til the daisies are out in my garden with some better weather..
