Green Shoots and green birds.
Todays posting is all about celebrating the first day of spring at the fibro majestic, one of the great things about living in the Blue Mountains is the the real awareness of the changing seasons, we really do have 4 distinct seasons here.
Forget the economy, this project is all about green shoots for me, and at this time of year I can't help but be reminded of that everyday. I am constantly discovering new buds and flowers starting to appear in the garden of fibro majestic and the birds have started visiting.
All the different coloured Camellias have been out for a few weeks now and those familiar with the Blue Mountains will know the row of Cherry Trees down the wide nature strip in the village of Leura and the beautiful display of pale pink flowers soon to appear. I also have one of these trees in my garden, it's enormous (8-10metres high), and a main central feature. Over the past week or so I have been watching as this grand old lady of the garden start to awaken from her winter slumber.
