Bugger all this politics - it's annoying after a while! Right now I'm taking real pleasure from watching the flowers in our garden coming into bloom. The Bougainvillea in the first picture which was planted a couple of months ago shed all its blooms as it adjusted but is now doing really well - behind it is a Jasmine which you can't really see in the picture but smells divine.
The flower in the second picture is a Bower Vine or Pandorea - I planted 3 varieties and they'll mask the ugly wall at the end of the garden in the course of time. I've surprised myself by getting a real thrill with each new blossom - the garden is tremendously relaxing and has become an extra room over the summer - you're more than welcome to drop by.
Taking pleasure in small things
Brownie point if you can guess the reason for the title btw....
