Whoever or whatever is in charge of universal happenings has obviously decided that there has been too much darkness in the world recently and that we need an extra bit of colour and cheer !!

I like the way he-she-it thinks :-)

Love to all

I have seen camelias and mimosas in flower this week and in my own garden I still have nasturtiums in flower. Apparently it won't be a disaster if the cold weather hits as spring flowering plants etc which are flowering early will go into stasis. I guess nature is more resiliant than we think...

My soil is turning to sand and my farmer neighbour is replacing his cows with camels!!! As someone said on my previous post on this subject -, the farmers know!!!! Personally I'll just keep planting brocolli to keep feeding my caterpillars, at least someone will be happy :)
