Hi Wolf ... all is good down under ... nice fresh mornings as 6 degrees this morning on the river ... cold hands and frozen feet when out rowing :) but still most enjoyable going out under a dark stary night and watching the sun rise ... beautiful ;)

The simple things in life really are the most wonderful ... hope you are well and happy ... warm hugs from down under ;)

Thought we ought to pop down under and see what is growing in your garden little Racoon, but seems that this bloom is sadly long gone ~ but beautiful whilst it lasts :)) I like the shot and I love the composition ~ See ya soon little Racoon ~ GH

Hello little Grasshopper ... my Tibouchina is in flower again, but would you believe that with the heat we have been having that the flowers out at the moment, instead of being the size of the palm of my hand are now no bigger than a 20 cent piece ... they look so tiny ... I think my poor plant is under a bit of heat stress ... But today we have rain ... so good ;)

Hugs from Racoon ;)

scml ~ Hi di hi little Racoon I hope that this plant is now on the road to recovery and that life is treating you well. What is the rugrat up to these days? Spread her wings and flown? Happy hugs ~ GH

wakey wakey hibernating Racoon ~ Does thou need a Prince to place a kiss on your sleeping brow?

Mmmmmmm ... hello little Grasshopper ... so nice to hear from you ;) Yes all is well with me ... just been busy with work and other things so not getting online much lately ... how are you ... keeping well I hope ... We have had a very wet year, a couple of floods and lots of continuing rain ... kind of sick of it ... But we are going into autumn so cooler days ... yea ;) The rugrat and one of her sisters are heading over to Europe end of May ... have two year working visas ... so will be in London before long ... lucky little buggers ... I will miss them :( Catch ya soon from little Racoon ;)

Wow that Prince did the job in double quick time little grey eyed and perfectly formed Racoon :~)))) So the Rugrat and one Sister are coming to London ~ I hope they enjoy it and get to see lots of Europe too. Glad to read that you are well. Yes the weather seems set to frustrate us all, you with too much rain and us with too much snow ~ although at long last the weather is bit milder at 5 degrees now for example. They promise us even better temperatures by the end of the weekend. Apart from that and the recession life plods along. See ya soon little Racoon ~ I'm glad all is well for you ~ hugs GH
