I’m pleased to report that the visiting moorhen is still here. I didn’t see him at all yesterday, but he made an appearance after lunch today, so that’s OK.

The other good news is about my Xmas cactus. I wrote earlier in the year about how it had suffered in the winter, in fact I almost lost it.

Today, although there is no sign of any flowers, there are plenty of new, healthy, green leaves, and I feel it is only a matter of time before the flowers will arrive.

Needless to say it is still indoors as I don’t want to risk losing it again.
