Warning… I’ll be saying something that will offend 95% of everyone ever.
I hate autumn.
I want the pretty pink blossoms of spring back. I’m not a fan of Autumn leaves.
That’s all for now.
Please still love me. 💗🤦🏼♀️🙊🤫🧜🏼♀️🌸✨💕
Fresh hedge trims 😍
Growing up I hated gardening ,maybe it was because every holidays and weekend I was dragged along with mum to work in gardens or made to help in our mammoth gardens at home .
But now my garden is my happy place and I owe so much to mum for everything she taught me over the years❤️ #nzgardener#countrygarden#springblossoms#buxushedge
"Dogwood" by William Johnson
Dog days doggone dog-tired dogwork of summer,
mowing the grass we're all coming to
the dog tags of you, me, I, we, stashed in a box,
doghouse throwaways. Even the namesake
tree whose blossoms some call Jesus-flowers
for the rust-grooved tips of the petals
as if nails now removed had indented
the shape of a cross, betrays my mood
how all those springs ago
seeing our tree nailed with bloody after bloody
crucifix I said this beauty's no foo-foo
and sure enough my dog-weary dearie
mowing today, the spring long gone,
I brush a limb on whose tired leaves mites amble
the edible thoroughfares and as if to confirm it,
our neighbor's mutt runs along the fence yapping
dogwood dogwood dogwood as the mower chugs on,
our train leaving for the city beneath the grass.
With the arrival of spring the blossom posts on insta have been plentiful. I have just one more, a special blossom that is eagerly awaited here and has just arrived.
This is Prunus "Ukon", at the top of my favourites list. This sublime blossom is pale creamy green with a pink blush, just so beautiful with the new bronze green foliage on this gorgeous tree.
The gently ruffled flowers are understated and elegant. As is often the case, the subtle speaks the loudest.

"The young leaves is shootin' on the trees,
The air is like a long, cool swig o' beer,
The bonzer smell of flow'rs is on the breeze,
An' 'ere's me, 'ere
Jist moochin' round like some pore, barmy coot,
Of 'ope an' joy, an' forchin
C J Dennis, A Spring Song
