There is blossom on the trees in our garden, daffodils flowering and tulip heads opening up.
In New Zealand the native Kowhai tree flowers in Spring as well.
The flowers are bright yellow and attract native birds like the Tui, Bellbird and the New Zealand pigeon Kereru.
When we became New Zealand citizens not long ago,we received a Kowhai tree as a gift.
We have two Kowhai trees in our garden and they are in flower now.
I did a watercolour painting for a card of the Kohwai flower and a pencil sketch, what will became a painting as well.
I am part of Sunday Sketches
