A walk in the garden

After the hectic lead up to Christmas, and 2 days of not doing much else but eat drink and be merry – always lots of laughter when our family gets together – it was time to relax a little bit.  While the sun was out this morning, I got stuck into weeding my flower garden. Lots of work to do there, I’ll be back at it tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after into the new year 🙂

Let’s take a walk around some of the flowers that are at their best just now.  I remember some years ago, one of my daughters said to me after a shopping trip to the plant nursery “Not another blue flower Mum”.  Now there seems to be very little blue as other colours are taking over.

(The draft and the preview of this post don’t exactly look the same, and the wordpress editor isn’t behaving like it should, so I hope the garden looks ok despite the mixup of the pictures. )
