Well, Christmas is done and dusted and today is the start of a new year. I must admit we were tucked up in bed and fast asleep when the clock chimed twelve. We have not seen the new Year in for many a long year now, but we are happy for all those who do go off to parties.
I certainly hope the new Year brings you all the weather you want as well as good health and happiness.
This photo is deceptively large. It is a lovely little ground orchid from far north Queensland which I have just been given - a spathoglottis. I hope I don't manage to kill it as I think it is very pretty, and is not one of those orchids which look quite ugly when not blooming!
We have had about 40 ml rain which has made the days much pleasanter and has filled our tank again. Thank goodness the rain has been falling also in western Queensland in places which have not seen rain for over twelve months - not drought breaking yet, but a good start.
