Hello Dear Reader,
Are you waiting to hear the 2017 Pantone Colour of the Year?
It is 'Greenery'
green as a gum leaf...
green as grass,
on a bright, sunshiny day..
and green as the leaves on our young Jacaranda tree, which has belatedly decided to bloom for the second consecutive year.
No, I didn't see it coming either.
Whoever heard of a colour called 'greenery'??
Remember the Great Agapanthus Massacre of a few weeks ago, when we cut them all back to the ground in the interests of snake safety?
Well, you can't keep those suckers down...
look at the stems shooting up, and two blue blooms have arrived today.
We love a hardy plant at the Cardinal Nest.
Love these mini gardenias which bloom for Christmas..
Look at the Obama girls, two beautiful young ladies now....
only little girls eight years ago when they came to the White House.
And Michelle looks younger and younger..
What a great Christmas card.
I made a Christmas cake.
Tomorrow we may make a boiled Christmas pudding.
The Canadians are still here, having a lovely time.
Have a great pre-Christmas week..
