The weather has been damp, showers rather than rain, the pressure and humidity changing as the showers came through but no wind, and no thunder.
I have been so busy posting pictures catching up on what started flowering while I was away that I thought I might not have any thing new for Bloom Day. A walk around the garden dispelled that idea. But first indoor plants – the orchids, Twin Little Pink was just beginning to bloom before I went and Twin Little Yellow opened its first flower while I was away.
