Don’t judge a garden from your kitchen window

We’ve had two days of beautiful rain (which makes a pleasant change from ice), yet from our kitchen window, the garden looks sad. Well perhaps not sad, but quiet and withdrawn.

…but I stepped out from the cave this morning with a cup of tea and took a wander …

We always tend to think that the little Japanese maple is at her best in autumn

but I’m wondering if that’s so

because when you catch her with no clothes on

when she’s just stepped out from a shower

wearing nothing but a pair of earrings …

ooo la la!

But the thing is, she’s hidden from our kitchen window because the crepe myrtle steals the show…

and it’s pretty hard to compete with this

Still … take some time this weekend to look in the shadows

You might see something that you least expect.

Have a happy one. Stay warm xx

          Aah, it’s winter down under. Am now staying in Malaysia, hot & humid all year long, and plenty of rain.
