Pickle helps with the photos.....

Winter is slowly turning to spring here in south eastern Tasmania. I am seeing apricot, almond and other blossoms, grape hyacinths, daffodils and all sorts of flowers I have never seen before. Everyday new buds are revealing their inner beauty and fresh green leaves are shyly peeking out from dormancy, into the changeable spring weather. There are too many photos for one post to upload so I will divide it into two......

.... belies its minute size!
image This japonica was first to bloom and it seems its show is never ending image The daphne's scent is as outrageously sweet as is the intense blue of the grape hyacinths
image ...and still more blue of something-wort, I think. imageimagePickle was ever helpful with selecting which plants to photograph! 
image The hellebores are such a delight under the trees image Leukodendrons are some of my favourites

I'm amazed that spring has come to southern Tassie earlier than the Mt. Lofty Ranges. (?) Lovely pictures.
