April showers bring us flowers 2012

The noise of long hot dry days, has been broken by the clear signal of autumn. We can garden in shorts and T-shirt without desperately seeking shade. An Easter weekend which brought us a grateful soaking of 34 millimetres of rain.

Our Southern hemisphere mediterranean autumn, walks hand in hand with Northern gardeners delighting in spring. The garden is stretching gracefully. 

Lampranthus seedheads open in the rain

Walking on our Karoo Koppie I found flowers in a subtle range of colours. Wait, those should be a star-spangled lemon yellow in September! The vygie seedheads had opened in the rain.
