Nov26 canon 012 (1024x682)Today was gloomy.  It was a combination of gloomy mood on my part and gloomy weather.  Gloomy times two equals gloomier.  So in an attempt to brighten proceedings I will attempt to list the gloomless events of the day:

1.  Noticing that Sparmannia africana is at last attempting to bloom;
2.  Watching Robbie the robin having a very thorough and splashy bath;
3.  Being the proud recipient of an exuberant greeting from Joshie the Handsome;
4.  Wearing my new hat with ear warming flaps;
5.  Planting Tulip “Early Harvest”, those little bundles of early spring joy;
6.  It didn’t rain.

Will that do?

  1. The Sparmannia africana is very pretty. It’s been my experience that very gloomy days are often followed immediately by quite bright days. Hope your tomorrow is one of those. 🙂

  2. Well that’s November for you. Gloomy. Early Harvest is a good choice of tulip. It is a little gem.
    What about a picture of your new hat with flaps? Then I might show you my transylvanian shepherd’s hat.
