Spring has sprung

... well and truly. (For those northerners who are puzzled that it's spring here, check out the effect of axial tilt on a planet's seasons.) Most of the blossom has gone from our garden by now because I am slack at doing the photo thing (and Flickr has changed how to embed photos, thanks very much, Flickr), but the garden still smells amazing. All photos taken 2-3 weeks ago, but there you go. Oh, and we do have kowhai in our garden, as shown in the icon. :-)

Blossom downhill

Our back garden, running down the hill. The steps by the wonky pagoda lead to another bit I call the secret garden.

Is this an apple tree by the steps? I'm not very up on that sort of thing. The big tree I thought might be cherry but now has red leaves (huh?)
I now think is plum.

The secret garden, even more private and secluded than the rest. It'll be lovely and cool in there in summer.

The blossom below the fence is on Isis Street.

Jasmin was sitting beautifully like a Bast statue but crouched down as soon as I got my phone out. Typical.

Then the other two turned up. :-) Also posted on Dreamwidth, with comment count unavailable comments.
