We've just had the windows, gable, portico and door painted on our house (after four years here!). I just love the slightly wild red we painted the door and I was tickled today to see a geranium cutting that I pinched from a friend's garden six months ago, and popped into a pot on the front verandah has flowered for the first time to match, the forest pansy cercis tree in our tiny front garden is leafing out in harmony too! p.s. My old camera always struggled with this shade of purply red. What a nice surprise to see this one capture it perfectly. p.p.s. I was so touched by the deep goodness of the couple who carried another's child when I saw them interviewed. They are very so honest and thoughtful in the face of an unimaginable trial.
