    you’re so right, that isn’t much of a pleasent way to start the morning.
    glad it’s not a regular occurance, hope it wasn’t too disstressing.
    visiting via ww. love you to stop by and say hello.

    There is something magical about a carpet of Jacaranda flowers. We have lots in Brisbane however I can’t get my Agapanthus to flower. I know they are super hardy, so it must be me!

    I don’t know why, but my email subscription of your blog seems to be running a day late!! I love Jacarandas – but the association up here for ANYONE who has ever studied in Brisbane is exams…

    My hippies have just finished flowering, and the frangipannis are going full tilt at the moment – it does get hot over summer and all but the alyssium hide from the sun, but the fringe seasons get a lot of compensation.

    As to the car – needs new seat covers…? I can’t stand the selfishness of such an act – where do some people get off?
