Scented wonders

flower barrelNo time for gardening for another day: more chores.   But the end is in sight and I’m poised to cut flowers for the house. A favourite past time indeed.   The lilac is scenting the whole courtyard; the tulips are bursting out of the barrel.   And everywhere I look there’s blossom.

There’s strimming still to do this afternoon. But my batteries are running on empty. I even took a short rest by the pool (newly opened and just vacuumed) to gaze at lizards and wasps and birds.   But came indoors to scrub the kitchen tiles after a bit.
