Bloom Day, But There's Nobody Here But
That's right, 10 cats and one small dog were not enough so now I've added a few chooks to the mix as well. They are Australorp chickens and hail from the land of Oz originally. There's 3 of them; Kylie (the blue one) and Possum and Skippy, the black grrls. Pretty, aren't they and great egg producers or so I'm told. They arrived chez Bliss last Saturday and are settling in nicely. Hopefully they will start laying eggs soon.
Jasminum nudiflorum, it's called nudiflorum because it flowers on bare branches. This baby has been in flower since last November.
When I started the Bliss garden my aim was to have flowers in the garden all year round and so far I've managed that for the last 5 years. Flowers all year round are a joy and they are particularly precious at this time of year.
Happy Bloom Day!
