Good morning everyone...I have to report that I am feeling 90% better and looking forward to our trip to the UK. We leave later today so not sure how much free time I will have to view your images...apologies up front.
Today's images were taken in the same garden as the strelizia from yesterday. There were flowers in various stages of growth, so I thought I would show you their life cycle.
Not sure when I will log on again...maybe a few days time when we are settled in London before leaving for Nottingham on the 9th.
Have a great weekend...GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin look forward to meeting a few of you
P.S ....We are visiting the UK to watch 3 of The Ashes cricket tests (my husband is Australian) so we will be at Nottingham for test 1, Lords London for test 2 and Manchester for the 3rd test.
