Weekend in the garden

Another beautiful Perth weekend! And we specifically made sure we didn’t have any commitments on Sunday. So, we spent some time in the backyard with the kids actually getting in the really cold pool!

It was good to see that our Frangipani tree has started to grow some leaves and the start of some flowers. We were getting worried that it was about to die because the trunk was getting a weird sappy texture. Amazing what a bit of watering does 🙂

Then off to the rose bushes. No flowers and upon further inspection, it seems they were covered with aphids!

Our kids had a great time collecting ladybugs, which we asked them to place onto the rose bushes.
