I've been so busy that I've almost forgotten that I have this blog, lol. I've just about finished most of the work in the garden if one can say it's ever finished. Still odds and ends to do but not a lot of heavy work. I can't complain about the weather although we did have a hard frost last night and some annuals that I had planted, I know, I know, far too early to do that here but one does get excited about getting them in the ground, anyway they were wiped out last night. Thankfully I had most of them still in the flats in the greenhouse and they with stood the frost well.

I've had a bit of a problem with my pictures lately, after they are taken off the camera. All due to a big heavy orange cat stomping across the key board while I was in irfanView looking at pictures I'd just taken off. Either then or when I was taking pictures off camera. I'm going to have to send out a plea for help soon as I can't figure out how to fix it but I'm too tired at the moment to go into it all. Will have to wait for another post.

We did have some rain overnight a few nights ago so I took some pictures of the jewels on some of the plants.

Flutter today.

A friend told me about a garden sign her daughter saw in a shop. She told me what it said and I thought, I can do here it is!
