What can I bring indoors?

It is nice to wander in the garden in the spring and bring a few items indoors so that we can enjoy them there as well.

This clematis is in full bloom and all too soon it will be gone but we are enjoying the moment.

At first I thought I would not be able to find enough to bring indoors but all too soon my basket was full.

I love the magnificent specimen of the waratah flower.  

I lived in New South Wales, Australia for over 30 years and this bright red flower is the State Flower.  I had always thought the New Zealand climate would not be warm enough for these grand flowers so was very surprised to see a waratah tree already established in our garden when we came here.  As an added bonus one of our neighbours had planted several on the border between our properties, so along with the birds, we get to enjoy this lovely flower year after year.
