Spring is almost over in Oz but I still get a lot of spring inspired stories to tell. Aside from crazy weather where you can experience different seasons in one day (see similar post here), different blooms are visible wherever there is soil found. Honestly, even if you've left a little dirt unintentionally in a pot, after a few weeks you can see a little weed with a flower blooming happily. Must be a happy time for both gardeners and the plants because of the abundant sunshine in the morning then watered by the rain in the afternoon. Too little maintenance needed indeed. This post features two common plants in my street, the Azalea and the Dandelion.
Here I was standing on what looks like a grotto of Azalea flowers. As you can see there are two kinds of Azaleas, white with pink spots and pink with deep pink spots. Though this beauty is very attractive yet the bees were no way near it since it is toxic both its leaves and nectar. And no, I didn’t let my baby play with this one.
I chose to wear a bodycon dress with flowers of different colours. The problem with bodycon dresses (short for body concious) is it creases easily maybe unless it's a Herve Leger dress. On the other hand, I just have to be confident about myself although I really need to pull it down when it rides up from constant moving. But I basically love the floral print of this dress and the massive coolness it provides when the sun is up. Don this with a cardigan in the afternoon then it will solve the changing weather of the day.
Next in feature is the Dandelion which my toddler more than likely considers it as a flower but I’m sure his dad would think it as a weed. You see, this boy loves picking flowers, I bet if he could only talk now he would thank his dad for not mowing the lawn yet. His eyes grew literally bigger when I took him out and he saw little yellow flowers everywhere. He picked from one flower to another almost racing with the bee. No worries, I made sure no bee was near him :).
Took a pic of him walking in the street, this serves as the continuation of my first blog entry when I was worried of him not walking yet, read it here. He walked shortly after that post though it took me longer for a follow up story. It just shows no need to worry about anything since it will happen when the right time comes :).
Finally, walking side by side outside with his nephew, Ivan. Ahhh, cute little fellas.
