Anyway I digress, I was downloading my camera and noticed that I've been taking quite a lot of pictures looking out from inside. Maybe because it's too smoky and awful to be outside. Who knows. Below we see a hollyhock outside the sunroom window, camera focused on the window. Which it can do because the window is so dirty. I think with the smoke and haze, cleaning windows might be a very short term improvement. I'm inclined not to bother.
Earth Garden that this might make the house less pleasant in summer by cutting off the air flow. But then again, it is lovely and shady. And it's still pleasant to lie on the couch and watch the birds. Grace is in her stretchie suit, playing with her tricycle and squashing plums with her feet. Noice.
And last but not least, the view through the scullery window. A couple of years ago we planted jerusalem artichokes and tree dahlia along the side of the house. In summer it provides a lovely alternative view to the rather ugly house next door. And you get to watch insect dramas while you do the dishes. Alas over winter, I also made some hanging baskets with cactus in them which I now can't see. I think I might have to selectively prune the greenery back.
Oh, look at the time. Bed is calling. Tomorrow maybe I'll spill my guts about the meaning of Christmas. Or not. Perhaps I should go to the gym instead because my attendance is slipping once again and G is starting to make cruel jokes about my membership.
