Probably the prettiest season in Perth is Spring. Bud burst is fast in this lovely city and it’s a short but wonderful time in the garden. I’ve just returned home from three weeks in the US (more to come on that) and everything has jumped into action, even the ground feels a little warmer as I reach in to pull out a few weeds. Roses are full of promise and covered in buds already, my wisteria is in bloom and the Liquid Amber over the pool is in full leaf now. Our mandarin tree is covered in blossom promising a bumper crop.
