FIRST DAY OF SPRING

It was the first day of Spring here in Melbourne today and the weather was a mix of fair and wet, cool and warm, blue skies and cloud! Nevertheless, a walk around the neighbourhood and in the garden didn't disappoint as lots of flowers and trees were blooming. Can you identify all of these wonderful flowers?

  1. Beautiful range of flowers in your spring world. On my Mornington Peninsula, there seems to be a slow rousing from a long winter sleep. I am struggling to get good photos. The weather is crazy.

    1. That's a broad bean plant! The young leaves are edible and taste good in fresh salads, while of course the green broad beans can be cooked for a vegetable and if they mature and dry, they make a great pulse dish.
