Spring is in the Air!!!

We had a long winter this year. And very cold too.

But it's OK now. The trees have started to produce young shoots and there are flowers everywhere.

The nectarine tree at Nanna's garden is in full bloom now. We hope for a good harvest. Or else, we'll go attack one of those PYO orchards in Bilpin...

The nectarine blooms up close. The fruits will come around November.

The flowering nectarine tree in all its full glory.

Aaahh...picture-postcard purrrfect...I love the blue sky too.

Oh, next Sunday, Oct 3rd will be the start of daylight saving time where we'll have to hasten the clock by an hour. Does that mean I'll have to wake up earlier? purrrr...meow!

Wan Sharif said...

Salam CiS,
Somehow my comment on Printemp have disappeared elsewhere..
Now Ayoh Wang feel rather nasty.. ha, ha..
Yes.. I read it somewhere that cat have different number of toes .. 5 in-front 4 at the back or vice-versa.. now that reminds me that the background picture for CiS block shows paws of 4 toes..
Ya lah.. itu gambar bukan gambar bekas kaki kucing ..Non?!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Ayoh Wang,
Spring is so pretty in our suburb and am so glad it reminds you of France...somehow. Anyway, last time I checked, I do have five in front and four at the back. So, you're right in your observation of the felines. Brad and I painstakingly paint our back soles to make those prints. Glad you like them. har har har ....purrr....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Your Highness,
Banana trees? So sorry...we don't have that in our backyard. purrr....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Au and Target,
Oh yeah....the joy of spring is indeed a welcome before summer comes. purrr....meow!

Dear Kitties-In-Sydney,
What beautiful pictures! I still find it strange to welcome Spring in Sept - Oct. As for DST, you won't have to wake up early, because you are Management Cats! You get to wake up and come in as late as you please!

Al-Manar said...

Is spring really that beautiful? No, not really if your concern is the daily pollen counts in the paper and the sneezes! I have had enough of that. And now I even worry when my mango trees are in full bloom - Aaa chuuu

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Ilham,
Yeah...anything for an extra cuddle with Mama.... purrr...meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

CO78,
Management cat? Nope. I'm Chairman of the Board. I even hire and fire....purrrr....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Dear Pakcik,
Aahhh...poor you. Guess you'll be one of those wearing a face mask when spring time comes a-calling, eh? Hmmm....here's a box of claratyne for you. purrrr....meow!

Pat said...

Beautiful pix, Kitty Kat! Just like you :)

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Pat,
Oooh...I'm blushing! Malu.... purrr....meow!

Sandy said...

Arrgghh I hate hay fever !! Pretty pics though , do cats get hay fever too?

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Tante Sandy,
I don't know about hay fever but there is such as a thing called cat flu... I love frolicking among the flowers in spring....purrr....meow!

TK said...

We'll have musim banjir soon! There'll be 1st wave, 2nd wave...Don't forget to post the photos of the fruits!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

TK Sensei,
The fruits? Still a loooong way away...itupun kalau bunga tak rosak... purrr...meow!
