The magnolias and cherry blossoms are in bloom here in Melbourne – isn’t that supposed to herald the end of winter and the onset of spring? Seems a good enough excuse for all the fashion stores who are beginning to advertise their flirty, breezy spring outfits.

Then how come there is HAIL forecast for tomorrow?

Time for some garden posts from my trip away. It was such an eye opener for me, to be in countries that clearly had no idea what a drought is. And even in hot Madrid, there was plenty of greenery in the city centre which we didn’t really leave in our 40 hours in the city.

We spent an afternoon at the Botanical Gardens and wandered through their gorgeous dahlia collection. Dahlias as big as your hand – BIGGER! In the most scrumptious of colour combinations, or explosions rather:
