14/11/2016 The birds are back :-)

Maximum temperature 11C, minimum 3C.  28 km/h NE wind.  1 mm of rain measured this morning.
The Christmas cactus is early but I am delighted to see it in all its glory...

  2. I remember in your last post you were anxious to see the Super Moon. I don't know whether the sky was clear enough where you are but I saw it here, and I gotta tell you it looked like any other full moon to me.

    1. Thanks David that cheers me up a bit as we still have a total cloud cover. No rain for months and then it picks now to be cloudy!!! Have a great week Diane

  3. Beautiful Christmas cactus. I had a baby plant but it died due to lack of water. Beautiful birds images. Have a great week!

    1. Thanks Nancy it is looking better this year that ever. Seems to be since I moved it into the bathroom, guess it is enjoying the steam from the shower! Have a good day Diane

  4. Your gorgeous Christmas cactus isn't the only thing early about the holidays. The stores here are already bringing it on.

    1. Not a lot in the stores here but I bet the UK is full of it. They seems to start there at the beginning of October!! Take care Diane
