It's spring in the southern hemisphere! The first day of September is the first day of spring in Australia - memories of warm sunny days and cooling breezes in Sydney. We're celebrating with a picture of a daffodil taken at our home in Maryland.
Spring in the tropics here in Fiji (and generally in the Tropics) enters with a whisper. We're really going to miss all those northern hemisphere plants and the dramatic changes with each season. The English might be known for their cottage gardens but the Americans know how to put on a real spring show with pots overflowing with a riot of colors, flowering trees aglow, and gardens bursting out with spring bulbs.
30,000. That's the number of hits on the Bristol Rose blog. Thanks for dropping in.
