I'm a succulent aficionado.

Stop and smell the blossoms
If you live near Gregory Hills, walk around the neighbourhood and discover the beauty of spring blossoms.

Here are some areas where I found some sweet blossoms. Catch a sight of these flowers before they're gone, as they don't last long. One street on Marcellin Park had white blossoms the other week and when I came back this week, there were no flowers, instead, green leaves had sprouted.

Crab apple trees line Lancaster Street with whitish-pink blossoms. In ten years' time, these would grow wider and will fill the streets with pink beauty. I can't wait!

Outside the fence of the Dog Park along Narrabeen Street, there are forest pansy trees with purple-pink blossoms and a European plum with white greenish flowers. There is also one similar to the latter at Butler Street.

Don't expect a large sakura event like in Japan. Gregory Hills is a fairly new suburb with trees roughly 7 years old. But if you look closer into these trees, you'll appreciate their beauty. Remember to stop and smell the flowers.

Some streets may only have one or two trees, but what a joy to find different species every time!

Tea trees are shrubs with tiny pink flowers found at the upper edge of La Valla Park.

There are plenty of bees feasting on these flower gardens, so watch out if you're allergic.

If you get lucky, you might find colourful birds in the park. I've seen some at the Dog Park, Thomas Donovan Park and La Valla Park. They will make their presence made known. Just look up when you hear one.

Take the family and the dog out for a walk. Don't forget to bring your masks and practice social distancing.
