Spring Blooms

Spring has arrived and I just can't help but reach for my camera when surrounded by blooms. All this in the gardens surrounding our house!


 Wattle (from earlier in the season)



One of our bees on a lavender flower

Cropped closely, the bee's pollen baskets are visible on its leg along with its proboscis (tongue) and individual hairs on its legs and body

Cherry blossoms



 Pear blossoms

 The fig is already fruiting even though the buds have only just opened!

Camellias in shades of pink, red and white




Rhododendron flowers

 Apple blossoms
