Its spring in Melbourne and I thought I would take a few photographs of flowering ornamentals.  These are African Daisies and as tough as old boots, but don't they look great.
Clivia are a striking plant, shade loving and drought tolerant, though they have benefited from our rather cool wet winter this year.
Spanish bluebells grow freely under our Apricot tree.  They contrast well with the Clivia in the background.
This Californian Lilac is sweet smelling and beautiful in spring.  It attracts pollinators more than any other plant in my garden.
I usually give the lawn a top dressing of sieved homemade compost every 3 months, and its due now.  I don't think it needs it yet though, so I'll skip it this time.
