    1. Yes! There was a nice share on Facebook of a little girl in a tutu and the caption read something like ‘dance like this every day before you leave the house’. Loses in the telling, Anabel- I think it was a Sandra Bullock kwote πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  1. Thank you for bringing some color in my day, Jo! Our surroundings have been pretty brown and grey, desert-y, with a sprinkle of blue. But, that’s it. Apart from the usual sunset and sunrise colors. Still, pink and purple will remain absent for a long while… πŸ™‚

    1. It’s like an English Spring day here today and I’m chasing my washing in and out, Frank. Can’t wander far in case it rains again πŸ™„β˜”πŸŒ¬οΈπŸ’•. Might have to make some custard soon as we’re out of cake πŸ€£πŸ’•

  2. What beautiful soft pinks Jo – not sure what the flowers are called (think from Jude’s comment a tropical hydrangea)?! Brightens up the day! Gloomy here but we really needed the rain due to the terrible bushfires near Perth so it is a huge blessing. It makes a change to have to hunt out jumpers and warmer clothes! Monsieur got me some lovely soft pink roses and a desert rose-coloured banksia today – the arrangement is so beautiful and reminds me a bit of the colours in your photo. We know a local florist who had spare flowers available as a wedding had to be cancelled due to the snap lockdown. Feel very sorry for the bride and groom and their families but she was selling the flowers off at a discount so they are now in vase on my kitchen table.Take care and hope you have a lovely weekend xx πŸ™‚

      1. Yes very sad for the couple in question 😦 Our florist said that she had one wedding that had to be cancelled on Friday (which is the one I got the flowers from) but the one yesterday could go ahead. It’s such a lottery at present!

  3. Pretty. My first thought is that it is a Hydrangea, but surely the wrong time of year? And then I read it is a tree. So I am flummoxed. Need a wider view photo of it to put it into context.

      1. Pink ball tree 🀣

        Seriously that’s all I can remember when I’ve looked up in the past! Hopefully Jude will know its proper name. Is this one in the castle gardens?

      2. Becky’s right. Dombeya wallichii is the Latin name. Also known as the tropical hydrangea, so I wasn’t totally wrong. The plant produces beautiful pink clusters of hydrangea-like fragrant flowers that last for over 1 month. You live where I want to…
