Something cheerful...

... to counter the wild weather we are experiencing at the moment. At least the gusty winds brought heaps of rain, too. We had 59mm in the rain gauge this morning. Nice!

This is a pink rosemary hedge in the orchard. It attracts tons of bees and hopefully they will be busy pollinating all flowers on the fruit trees once they are out.The blue rosemary is just outside the garden shed and a lot of it ends up in our kitchen for cooking.
The white rosemary should have a more prominent place, really. It is a bit hidden behind the (small) lemon tree.
All of these attract tons of bees. It's lovely to see them all buzzing around and enjoying the flowers.

Looks lovely, bet it smells great too, some of my rosemary hasn't flowered yet, the bees are still enjoying what has flowered.
