The botanical gardens are currently selling tomato plants.i got 6 different types, but there are hundreds of varieties to choose from. so many in fact it makes your head hurt. as recommended i won't be planting them out until after show day. the gardens are absolutely magnificent at the moment... look at this beauty. #botanicalgardens#spring#gardening#tasmania#nofilterrequired.
The trip home from the beach was slow as i kept demanding to stop, as i spotted yet another beautiful spring flower which just had to be photographed. adam and walter were definately not amused.#springflowers#bayoffires#tasmania
We awoke to rain on the roof. whilst the boys continued to sleep i read and let ann cleaves transport me to the shetland islands. once the rain settled and the boys awoke, we drove out to the beach. adam got the win of the day yet again, finding a big bellied sea horse. we haven't come across one of those before.#moodyspringweather#slowdays#bigbelliedseahorse#schoolholidays#bayoffires#tassie
Today saw us take on "the blue tier" mountain bike trail. there were a few hairy sections but it was super fun. thanks to ikey for being my paceman. we celebrated with lunch at the weldborough pub.#bluetiermbt.#spring#bluerun#tasmania.
Wedding bush (ricinocarpos pinifolius). my favourite plant in the north east of tassie and it's absolutely prolific at the moment. it holds sentimental value as it featured in my wedding bouquet. #weddingbush#bayoffires#spring#tasmania
Adam found this beautiful weedy sea dragon today at picnic rocks. this is the third of its kind we have found on the beaches around the north east of tassie. such a beautiful treasure. #weedyseadragon#bayoffires#flotsamandjetsum#spring#schoolholidays#tasmania
I love burning off. i have wasted at least three hours this afternoon and could have wasted at least three more. now that the weather is a little warmer and things have dried off it's a good time to prepare for summer. when you live in a wooden house surrounded by eucalypt trees and the fading scars of the 1967 fires are still evident,it's essential. #burningoff#piromaniac#spring#tasmania.
I think this is almost the last of the spring daffodils. thankyou to the previous owners who planted so many different varieties. sad to see them slowly dying off, but next comes the irises and peonies. the little daisy is courtesy of a friend's dear boy, picked for me last week and still going strong.#daffodils#spring#tasmania#daisycourtesyofharry.
Ever feel like there is a conspiracy against you? lately i feel like the pottery gods have it in for me. everything i make has cracked recently. determined i have continued on. nothing a few strategically placed succulents can't fix. #lifeofaamateurpotter#succulents#royalblue#spring#conspiracy#tasmania
Everywhere i look things are springing to life. about a week ago this cactus started sprouting the sweetest little pink flowers. my peas have just pushed through and i think i may get three figs this year. now waiting on the mixed bag of old seeds i planted in my garden bath. fingers crossed. #spring#gardening#suprises#tasmania#cactus
