Scrap your story challenge #6 Springtime

This weeks challenge at Scrap your story is all about Spring.
Feels strange we are entering Autumn....but I thought I would do a layout of flowers in my garden....well used to be in my garden!
The water restrictions in the drought, stopped me from planting lots of flowers and now the price of water is so expensive...and it hasn't rained, so I am just keeping my roses alive and will be planting native shrubs ( not the same as masses of flowers) and succulents.

I made these table decorations from the flowers in my garden for my 50th b'day. I have used hubbies penny inks from his bottle collection for vases.
A few close ups

Looking at these I just want to go crazy and go outside and start watering and planting...but I am still paying off the last water it won't be happening!
