Bring on Spring..

Less than a week to the official start of Spring..

Today I'm spraying the dreaded Bindi Eye that's trying to overtake our lawn..

Getting rid of the last of the winter weeds..

The weather has been so nice lately and I can't wait for my garden to start blooming..

Here's some roses from last Spring that I collected from my front garden...

They smelt SOOOOOO good..

Oh yeah, remember I was on the search for a new bed.

Well we decided on an ensemble and bed head ..

I've found a great one at a local Auction yesterday ..

I'll get the before and afters up soon..

I'm SO excited..


  1. Qué bonitas rosas, Tara ! Y el aroma te durará bastantes dias. Disfruta !
    Un abrazo.

  2. Beautiful roses, is that purply one blue moon?? Its still too cold for ours to flower yet, i am trying to be patient!

  3. It's so amazing to me that Spring is starting for you and Fall is just about to begin for me! I am really looking forward to seeing your new bed!!

  4. Your roses look gorgeous especially in front of the leadlight window. I miss having a flower garden but I don't miss all the weeding etc that goes with it!

  5. Beautiful pic Tara, a lovely spring reminder. Can't wait to see this new bed, well done!!

  6. Isn't it just amazing that we are so far away from one another that our seasons cross over.
    I know you are looking forward to spring and I am looking forward to fall.
    Your roses are so lovely. I think I can smell their lovely fragrance across the seas!

    I am also looking forward to seeing your new bed.


  7. So pretty!!
    Thanks for you visit today, you put a big smile on my face!

  8. Hi Tara,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment so I could find your lovely blog. I am pleased to read that in your profile comment you mention that you have two lovely teeneage boys. Despite your earlier post about them causing high blood pressure, as a mum of two little boys, it's nice to know that even as teenagers you still consider them lovely!
