Show and Tell with the pretty petals

And, for your Spring eye-ball delight, I give you.....

The cast-off cast-iron hand basin planted with pansies.

The vibrant blue of the Blue Pacific just outside the back door - it GROWLS with bees all over it humming in bliss.

And the bath tub underneath the plum tree dripping dizzily with blossom.

  1. What a beautiful garden, Jayne. I was hoping you would post some photos. The cast iron bath has a good spot. Finally, it is blossum time in Melbourne, but then it is also usually 'blow a gale' time too. Lovely photos.

  3. Love the Pacific Blue, they're quite prolific here in Adelaide too. Unless I'm confusing them with something that looks the same.

  4. Lo-ove the sink, and whatever variety of pansies those are. The bathtub is whimsical. Are you planning on putting a fountain up through the drainhole?

  5. Thanks all :)

    Yep, LiD, the blossoms would normally be all over the place by now lol.

    Red and River - the colours are so bright and eye catching, very vibrant after dull winter hues :)

    Thanks, Fen.

    No, Lavender, I'm keeping it for a good old soaking in Summer or a freezing dip in winter should the shower ever pack up lol. Hubby's promised to build some decking around it.

    Thanks, Elizabeth :)

  6. Jayne -- I take it that the bath tub pictured is the one you recently did your bathing in. What a lovely environment it has. -- barbara

  7. That's the one, Barbara!
    I could see the moon through the (then bare) branches of the plum tree lol.
