Summer is arriving - I think

Today is officially the first day of spring. There is still a lot of dew in the mornings and these mushrooms are popping up everywhere. I have never seen such a lot together in one bunch. These are small, the biggest being maybe half an inch in diameter. New shoots are appearing on most of the bushes.
Hibiscus blooms for most of the year and new buds are coming out too.
The honeysuckle is in full bloom and I love to stand and smell the fragrance they give off.
The Clivias are almost at their best.
Soon the whole bush will be covered with these beautiful flowers.
