Updated to add Jane’s link
Clock on steroids.Again!.
Just when I think I can see through a gap in the mountain of work….C’est la vie
But, I am ready for Jane’s floriforous frolic! Actually, I scooped some beautiful lilies the other day, as a little treat for us, to celebrate the fixing of the fridge.(see previous post) And then, knowing how quickly flowers can wilt here, even in winter, I took some photos. No, I don’t think that’s cheating. I call that smart! And a jolly good thing, too, as a couple of tearaways snapped a stem, rounding the corner into the home straight…Anyway, here are my flowers in the house for this month.
Yes, yellow lilies.With some yellow roses, too. I was told, years ago, that yellow roses mean infidelity, jealousy and rejection, in the language of love. But some sources say the yellow rose means friendship.I don’t hold with any of that nonsense! I like the colour and it goes with the decor, so there! I added some jasmine and some greenery and stood the vase in a blue ceramic planter.
And the orchid, still going strong 6 weeks later. Because I can!
Huge thanks to all those who have applied the brakes to Global Warming.I am
pleased compelled to report that winter has hit us. You thought it was always hot and sunny in the tropics? Oh! Give your head a shake!
Hah! Jane has not yet set Mr.Linky for this month.Serves me right, I suppose, for trying to be on time. But this is where it all happens and as soon as I know I’ll update this post.
