"I most often find that happiness is right where I planted it."


A beautiful Spring day here at Kainga. The rain will return this week though. The roses may be a bit bare from the pruning that has taken place but there are plenty of blooms around the garden.


Crab apple blooms.

Dutch Iris
Daisies and  Grape Hyacinth Bulbs.

Spring time brings many treasures out in bloom.

Happy days.

It's so fun hearing you talk about spring, when we're on the opposite sides of the world, and thus, opposite calendars. Your lavender looks so beautiful, as does everything else. How refreshing!

Good Afternoon Bev, It is so lovely to see Spring flowers blooming in your garden, as my garden is now losing most of it's colour, as Autumn has arrived here in England.
I love lavender and yours looks particularly lovely. My Uncle Ted used to grow Stocks from seed and he would share the young plants with me, sadly he cannot garden anymore as he is unwell.
I love the hand towels you made with the little hearts. They are lovely.
Enjoy your warmer days.
Best Wishes
