Violet




Spring has sprung and blossoms are blooming. Endless cliches could be used to describe the beauty of this season, but instead i'll let the garden do the talking.

1. Basil flower.
2. Some kind of cheap potted colour that I insisted upon on our last visit to the nursery.
3. Delphinium. The prettiest thing in the veg garden.
4. Chive flower. My favourite of all the flowering herbs. They look just like the trees in the Lorax.
5. Egg plant.
6. Buds on the apple tree.
7. Buds and spiders webs on the lemon tree.

    1. And the spiderwebs are gorgeous. (I have a soft spot for spiderwebs at the moment, because they are Oscar's latest fascination).
