Spring is such a transformative season here at the farm, and we are all pretty excited to see the new blooms coming through.
Often seen as the promise of spring, snowdrops were the first buds to show up. Following them, and to really kick off the season, the daffodils appeared and have stood through some of the recent frosty nights and harsh snowy days.
The ever-popular cherry blossom trees have been flourishing for the past couple of weeks and are always a delight bringing some beautiful blush colours to our surroundings. Before long though, the fresh grass ends up blanketed by the pink petals, ushering in a new collection of blooming plants.
Tulips and rhododendrons will be out showcasing some bright, cheerful colours, as well as giving off wonderful aromas and bringing our gardens to life soon enough. Then the gypsophila, and our creatively named "White Garden" will add some more depth to the flower gardens, and highlight the peaking of springtime.
It's not only budding flowers and trees that announces spring at Wānaka Lavender Farm. The little lambs that join our farm family at this time of year are also indicative of new beginnings and the sweetness of the season ahead.
