Yes Ryan, we do have beautiful flowers, every season has superb offerings...
My husband is gloating a bit but says it was a remarkable days play. Sadly we miss a lot of the days play as it only starts at 1.30am here. Fortunately we are there in Australia for the next 4 tests...he does say anything can still happen in this test with 3 days to go.
