Excuse brevity. Am neck deep in Romance Australia online conference right now, and loving it :)
The first of the calendula have started to flower in the front garden.
Calendula left, Pepper the cat right
The front garden is the domain of The Cat Who Will Not Die. Her name is Pepper, she has been with me now for 17 years and is showing no sign of slowing down. She spends her days chatting to me through the kitchen window, treating the dog with the disdain he deserves, hiding under the steps from the kids and using the entire front garden as a toilet.
