“I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.”

I’m a little late with the annual ‘Spring ritual’ of posting a series of flower photos from my garden – partly because here in south Western Australia we had a particularly long, cold winter. The rain that came with it in abundance has given us a truly wonderful Spring, with wildflowers in bloom that hadn’t been seen for years. The photos below are a little sample of the ‘glory of the garden’ this year, accompanied by some favourite quotes about flowers. Enjoy! 🙂

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable. ~ Joseph Addison
