A surprise from an ugly plant
The house is abuzz with activity today as the golf course is flooded (Barwon Valley club is near the river and becomes a lake periodically and this is a surprise after the drought), so Peceli is on one computer writing about the coming of the lotu to Nadroga, Junior has pulled up the lino in the bathroom as we are seriously into renovating at present, and I have been going bonkers typing up lists on Excel. Then I walked out to tidy up the potplants and discovered one of the ugly cactus plants has flowered brilliantly. So I drew it before it faded or someone stole it, etc. I used watercolour pencils, and a bit of whiteout. I've been throwing out lots of geraniums that look elderly and some of the cactus that are half-eaten by bugs.
