Nothing much of interest has been happening around here. I know I have showed photos of these trees before, but the Buckinghamia (Ivory Curl) and the Euodia are both looking magnificent this summer
You probably need to click on this to reach its largest size, then you may see the lorikeet gorging itself. They have a wonderful time, but they are quite destructive, breaking off quite large branches sometimes. they also make a loud screeching noise, but we still love having them.
Now this Clivea should certainly not be flowering now, but I was so amazed I had to show you. I had to move them all after the tree fell over almost two years ago and this is the first flower since then.
I have actually been dong a bit of stitching, but I can't show you till the pages and birthday cards reach their destinations. I am so pathetically slow with hand stitching - only stab stitch, that is all I can manage with my stiff fingers - that I have taken about three times as long as I expected to finish them off. Now I hope to have a few days working on Lynda Monk's new book - it is so full of inspiration.
