Amongst all the doom and gloom in my life, I'm glad to say that there is a little bit of sunshine breaking through. I took these photos of the first spring bulbs starting to bloom. Since our winter is basically mild, compared to those in the Northern Hemisphere, a lot of things that go to sleep in the winter wake up a bit earlier. So as you can see in the pictures, the rose bush is still asleep, as are the rest of them in the garden, but these lovely little daffodils have just started to bloom. In the background you can also see a lone jonquil that has popped up. There are more starting to build buds and I reckon they will be out in another week or so. All over the rest of our garden there are bunches of daffodils and jonquils that are starting to pop up and will also be in bloom in the coming weeks. The only other bulbs that have yet to make an appearance are the tulips but we usually don't see them until late September early October. So I say bring on Spring and enjoy the sunshine. Enjoy...
The daffodil laughs at the mighty rose that is afraid to come out of hibernation. If you look close, you can also see the lone jonquil in the back.
