This is a lovely time of year in the garden here.
Our scraggy old cactus didn’t disappoint and there were a couple of flowers left when we got home. They only last 24 hours. Typical of most cacti the flower is stunning.
The star jasmine was in full bloom too.
For me, it is wise to get out in the garden early in the morning or after sun down in the evening. Usually, at this time of the evening is when I am preparing dinner, so I have pledged to get out there for an hour early in the morning each day – well those days when I am not going out socializing.
This morning I was a little late getting into it due to the fact that our beloved Bella had to have her annual haircut. Poor Bella is about 12 years old now and her back legs are a bit dicky with arthritis. A bit of a handful to get in and out of the car. She wasn’t too keen on going in for her salon treatment either. Kept heading for the front door of the place!

My friend, Shirley, is back from her little sojourn ‘down at the farm’ and she brought me back some floral gifts. Thank you Shirley – she knows how much I love flowers. She also gave me some cuttings to put in our garden.
