Laptop blues..days 30 -

Ok, I'm still using the laptop and not really enjoying the experience.  We've also had illness in the family - (my mother-in-law broke her hip but is thankfully mending well), and I have fallen a little behind with my posting.  But, I have some time this evening and also the inclination so here's a bit of a catch up.

# 30/365  The bottle brush flowers  attract many, many bees and wasps as well as other insects. 

# 31/365 View from the office.  I'm very lucky to work in a place where there are many plants and flowers, lots of green space and trees.  This is a detail from a hanging basket  - one of a pair outside my office window.

# 32/365  Ah, tea........This is the only photograph I took on this particular day, which was a loooooong day and this mug of tea at about 9.30 p.m. was a lifesaver!  I used my favourite handpainted mug (there's a ladybird in relief on the other side) which my mum bought for me about 10 years ago for comfort.  No-one else is allowed to use it!

# 33/365   -  We seek him here, we seek him there

The mystery has been solved, the truth revealed, but no-one has been beheaded.  Imagine my delight when I identifed the tiny red wildflower as a scarlet pimpernel.  The link has some fabulous close up photographs of this lovely little flower and although we don't have it in abundance, I'm hopeful for next year!
