Choose life. Life is wonderful.

 Another week has rolled on yet again.The weather has been beautiful. It is going to be our warmest winter on record. Our last summer was the hottest summer on record and we had out hottest day on record. It certainly makes you think about climate change.

Spring is almost here - only 4 days to go. The ornamental plum trees on my neighbour's footpath are in full bloom.

My native rock orchids or Dendrobium speciosum are also blooming.

I still have Jasper. He is very happy to lie on me whenever he can. Here he is below lying on my hip on the lounge. He is great company and I am going to miss him when he goes. The main difficulty is that I don't have a yard suitable for dogs and this causes a few problems.

P:-) is spending a lot of time in my back room getting the part where the ceiling and walls join perfect. Instead of putting up a cornice he is doing it square set which means it is just going to be at 90 degrees.

It is taking him a long time but he is doing a great job.
