Spring is here!!

This is a magnificent tree I saw on my recent trip to Melbourne. As you can see the limbs are really old and twisted. It was in a park setting very close to the centre of the city. I found Melbourne to be a very drab city as the buildings are very old (I do like that tho) but as they have very strict water restrictions in place most of the cars driving around were all covered with a layer of 'greyness' -I don't think that is a word but I think you will get the picture. I have some lovely photos of some beautiful old buildings that I will share with you later.

After wandering the city streets for some time we came across a market which had the most beautiful flowers - I really wanted to buy some but as we were only there for 3 nights I thought it was a bit silly.  It was just great to see the buckets and buckets of vibrant colours lined up. As today is the first day of spring here I am getting my 'spring fix' by looking as these photos.

Happy spring day!!

Beautiful pictures! I didn't know that about Melbourne...the grayness. I'd never buy a gray car to begin with!! ;-D

Hope you are enjoying your visit. I love the buckets of flowers!
