Birthday gift revealed

Rachael had her birthday yesterday...

Mr Stick (he who is responsible for prodding and getting ladies stitching on their UFO's over at Stitch & Stash on Tuesday) decided he wanted to send out another spy so he can see how many UFO projects she has and make sure she is making good progress on them. Miss Twiggy complete with her prodding stick arrived safely and is under strict instructions to report in each week on the forum with Rachaels progress as does Seymour who went to live with Barb. I know you all think i am bonkers and lost the plot, maybe think is the wrong word...some of you have met me and others know me well :-)

When sitting in my conservatory recently with lashing rain and high winds (every day this week so far), its been a pleasure to watch my cactus come into flower. These flowers are some 6" across and there are about 20 buds waiting to bloom on it. Such a shame its not in flower for the show, it might have won a prize, although i will take more pics and enter them into the photography category for other growers to see it.

Thanks for stopping by, i hope you are having a good week
