Although it is indoor weather today I can see from my windows some flowering delights.
Now 18 months old (in my garden ) the Vireya rhododendron at the front door is looking very happy and healthy. Its called Dawn Chorus. I had one at the orchard that did brilliantly so knew I liked it.
On the other side of the house the Zygocactus is coming into flower. I was doing some research on it and it is now reclassified as Schlumbergera. I know in the Northern Hemisphere you call it Christmas cactus. ( I hope I can remember its new name! ) Its many years old and is happily repotted in a terracotta pot..
In July our Patchwork and Quilting group is having an Exhibition. As I have lots of felt still I have been making Christmas decorations for the Sales Table. It doesn't really show here but they need something shiny to look any good. ( thread or beads or baubles ) I have more cut out . They are my hand sewing project at the moment.
I will show you this for a laugh. The all time largest feijoa I have seen
Back to the kitchen now where I am making bread and have made a date loaf. Its chilly ( & wet ) enough outside to day to appreciate the heat from the oven.
