Yay, it’s another Friday… One week closer to lighter days. Today, in my book is a good day. There’s sun shining in through the windows as the sun at last manages to creep high enough over the houses/hedge/fence at the back to allow sun into the house.
It’s always a breath of fresh air and makes me so incredibly happy; it’s difficult to put into words how I feel.
On a side note though, my ear infection took a turn for the worse a few days ago and I was in so much pain I couldn’t eat, and the pain from my ear seemed to be shooting down my back to the base of my spine and legs making me want to twitch them and whimper like a dog… You know how animals when in serious pain gnaw at their own body? Well, that’s how I felt.
So back to the doctors I went and now have some antibiotics (was on a spray with anti b in before). And today I am almost pain-free. This is good timing because I’m due to see Swan Lake tonight with my mum!
Sooooo, flowers??? Hrm. There aren’t many, but I did spot the sweet box in bloom next to the gate, as well as yet more bulbs emerging.
I also noticed Honeysuckle has new growth on it (not that it ever really lost its leaves)
It was frosty yesterday, so I popped out with ear muffs, scarf etc on…. It was bitterly cold and then suddenly warmed up and all the frost was gone??
Yes!!! Bloom on Hellebore ‘Tutu’!! I would do a little dance around the room, but I’m taking it easy…
So very happy to see a bud on it and hope to see more soon. I need to check on the others, so far only Niger have blooms/buds but I think I spotted another with a bud coming up.
So there we have it; not really blooms as such, but rules are there to be broken.
