White petal skirts and hot fuschia stamen.

Pollen crystals, like sugar, falling.

Flowers, Sugar and Spice


What a pretty picture she paints in her pink and white frock!

Dressed up so girly, sugar and spice.

Crystals of pollen clutched so tightly, afraid to fall, yet falling anyway.


White satin petals, silky and smooth.

Looking so perfect,

sugar and spice.






My patio baskets of Christmas Cactus, have all decided to bloom.

I’ve left them alone, unfussed with. And they’ve decided to bloom as is, where they are. Hardy little plants.  I’m amazed they haven’t all died in the severe Perth drought and heat the past summer. Lucky me!
