Spring has arrived here down under. We have been busy in the garden, planting summer vegies and warm-loving annuals. The transition between winter and spring wasn't that dramatic. Though we had some frosty nights and really cold days, we only lost few plants like papayas and habanero chillies. Not feeling hard done by, as we were happy with our winter crop this year. In saying this, I have taken many photos of our vegetable garden and of my she-shed (for tea time). I feel a little slack because I haven't shared as much in my blog as in my Instagram. Now that I have my own desk in the spare room aka vintage room, I will be able to sit down and post as much as I can, phew (thanks to my DH). I am joining Bernideen for Tea in the garden

Apple blossoms are small but attract lots of attention
The versatile Calendula is so prolific, it spreads its seeds in every corner of the garden
Well, almost tea time
This $1.00 garage sale find cactus is covered with flowers
These red cabbage are too slow-growing, winter left them to spring
These Bokchoy are so impatient, must think we are so slow in picking that they have gone to seed
We still have a row of cauliflower, I hope the white cabbage butterflies won't discover them

And the star of the day: Mr Lincoln
