Spring is Sprunging

I went for a walk today and was amazed at how many plants and trees are in leaf or flower. We’ve had a pretty mild winter (so far, it’s going down to 15C with rain on Monday) and Spring is obviously on its way.

The hawthorn’s May blossom is out, as are the flowers on the orange tree in the communal garden. Hibiscus blossoms are popping out again and the arum lilies in our neighbour’s garden are flowering. Wild fennel is springing up all over the place. Our yellow winter jasmine is in full flower. Our bougainvilleas and passion flower vine have new leaves coming through, as has our jade plant. Some of our Veldt daisies are out. Our bottlebrush has been out as has our grevillea bush. And our cyclamens in the pot in Cyclamen, front gardenthe corner of our garden are also flowering very prettily. Oh, and our freesias have just sent out new leaves so, hopefully, we’ll be seeing the plants in flower shortly.

I particularly love the hawthorn blossom – its scent takes me back to my childhood when my friend and I would go for a long walk to the part at the end of the West Cliff pedestrian area in Ramsgate, south-east England and enjoy the scent of the hawthorn hedges when they were in blossom in spring.

Below are more photos of Spring in North Cyprus!

    • I must admit, Carol, that what I really miss about not living in England are the snowdrops, daffodils, bluebells and crocuses. When we lived in the north-east of Scotland in 2003, I loved walking in a park which was thick with bluebells, absolutely lovely. Except for the cold weather 😀

      • Thanks, Carol. If it’s the post about snow, I sent it to her, got it from a friend in America. Luckily Cher’s got a sense of humour. Sent it to another Canadian friend who got all snarky and lofty about Canada and snow. No sense of humour!
