I usually run with a theme. Winter is still here, but the garden is showing signs that regardless of our calendars spring is not far away. Health issues have meant that the garden has been neglected and it has got away from me, but these emerging blooms have spurred me on to do a bit. And a lot of work is needed.
One of our camellias is coming out and the others are heavy with bud. If the birds leave those buds alone we will have a beautiful display later.
This tuberous begonia flowers all year round. Which is wonderful.
One at least of our orchids has come into bud too. Yay.
In other news Batty is rapidly becoming the six million dollar cat. He had two visits to the vet last week with a persistent (but intermittent) cough and wheeze. Hopefully his treatment will work this time. If not he will be going back to the specialist. Poor, poor Batty (though we seem to be more worried than he is). I also have some scary symptoms which hopefully I will get a diagnosis/treatment plan for in the coming weeks.
I hope you find beauty and brightness in your week.
