of spring being sprung!

I’m on a much needed home holiday this week hooray.

On Saturday my mother in law and i went and visited the local tulip farm (yes, there are tulips in Australia, lots of them actually! – my home town and my new home town ie here both have tulip festivals at this time of year – funny that I left one to end up in the other, 1200km’s apart). My MIL turns 90 this year and was born in the area but had never been into the tulip field – only looked over the fence as the locals do… and I figured it was about time I went and had a squiz too!

Spring has also sprung in our garden… below are a couple of pics from one section – our mad self seeding pansies which are taking over, and the results of a $10 random bag of tulip bulbs Mr Tasmania bought at a statewide agricultural fair earlier this year.

  1. Wow that looks great, so colourful! I can’t get my head round bulbs in full bloom at this time of year, as we are heading into winter this side of the world! I hope you post lots of flower photos, I will need the colour to see me through the winter (you can stop about mid-May next year :D).

  2. hope on overto my flickr page Mrs Tasmania Jackie there’s more over there – and yes, I will probably post more – I’m just annoyed that my back was giving me so much grief earlier as my daffodils were AWESOME this year and I”ve totally missed getting any photos 🙁

  3. Like what Jackie said. Added to that comment my head was struggling with seeing Lincolnshire transported to the other side of the world.
