Only a week (ish) since I was entertaining you and here I am again!
Not a lot is happening around here as the rain is still hanging around. That’s fine by me as my herbs are doing well.
But the major overhauls have had to be put on hold until things dry out a bit.
Remember last week I said I was hopeful of masses of crimson flowers on the Megaskepasma eryth…etc? Well…
Blimey!That was quick!
Erm…no. I scrambled up the back fence and took this shot of Bob the Builder’s bush. Hey! It’s not cheating if you tell the truth.
And this morning i discovered this…
Let’s see who can guess what it is. Try not to be too rude. MURIEL!
Our internet/phone change-over is all set now.It took a while and required someone to be here to answer the ‘phone and I have still to compose a non-dorky message. I favour something like: “If your call is important, leave a message and if I think it’s important I’ll call you back.” But The Man says I can’t do that. Wanna bet?
We were enjoying an afternoon glass of wine the other day when I spotted a moth between the window and the wire screen. It was a bit tricky, but I managed to flap a tea towel and drive it down to where I could reach it and release it. There was no time to get a camera (despite having at least two fully-charged!) so I let it go.What was it? Mr or Mrs Dysphania, parent of the Yellow Fellows. Here’s one from the internet

And now it’s lunchtime !
I know the lovely Scarlet staged a Sunday Music coup last week and she can still host that (unless Mago wants it back!)
But I’d like to leave you with some “local” flavour. Just close your eyes and imagine you’re one of the first Europeans to hear this sound. Would it have given you the willies? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLu9GmV2vF0
