Sunday January 11 2009


Well Grandad and Grandma you are probably wondering where the girls are. Put it this way, teenage girls are difficult to photograph. The props have to be in place and they have to be wearing the correct clothes. And of course any skin blemish rules them out for at least a few days.... So back into the garden for me and my daily photo.

I love this plant which is also called the Lobster Claw. I have a large cluster growing behind the garbage bins and they flower despite no watering. I love the patterns in this photo but if you have never seen this beautiful flower the unclipped version is below.

Have a wonderful day!
