I’ve been blogless this week. There are various reasons, most of them associated with ennui and apathy. These things happen. To tied you over, here is a Inula hookeri thinking about flowering.
A window of relief from the rain. A relentlessly flowering Inula hookeri. A bee taking full advantage.
Outside it is blowing and blustering and sheeting rain. Hope this little chap from earlier today has found a port in this storm.
