The rain that came through Australia about 2 weeks before spring was so very needed. This week the whole landscape is responding and the countryside looks fantastic. The mango trees have their flowers forming and the blueberries are starting to turn that dark purple colour. The citrus are covered in flowers and so are the peaches and plums. Also the mulberry trees leaves look very healthy and some mulberries look like they will start to turn black. The passion fruit vines seem to have doubled in size since the rain.
All in all we are very excited about spring in 2007. The conditions are perfect to help the plants that suffered from this years big frosts get back on their trunks.
