Around about the place

The passionfruit vine that just keeps on giving - we have so much passionfruit around the house right now. Passionfruit on yoghurt, in cereal, on its own...passionfruit cake is next, I think.

I am pleased that this little rose I planted when we moved in has picked up so prettily. Maybe one day it will rival its big sisters planted by my grandma...

Is this a weed? I have no idea. I kind of like it!

The lone fig. I am hoping one day to have a fig tree as big as my parents one (where this little guy came from) - theirs is about 10 feet high. I think I can, I think I can...

A beautiful, beautiful rose from the bush my grandma planted in 1948.

It has become quite a bit cooler here over the last few days, with a few reasonable showers of rain. Apparently it will warm up again this weekend, but the garden is loving a little respite from summer.

Have a lovely weekend.

I was just down your way...well, not quite Melbourne but in Geelong and it was very fresh, particularly coming from 36c in Sydney!

Beautiful photos!

Absolutely gorgeous,
a glimpse of days ripe with flowers and fruit!

The light has changed here,
March burst through the gate
with cold Russian air masses following in its steps.
It will get gradually warmer,
true spring should be here by weekend!

@ Wurst Semmel -

Thanks :) Yes, Geelong can get chilly. I was in Sydney about a fortnight is so humid there! Reminded me of Singapore.

@ Merisi -

Thank you :) Vienna sounds beautiful, as ever.
