So, the sun came out. I took a few shots. Dumped them on the computer and decided that I had one or two subjects that deserved a bit more work. Rather than do it right there and then - I started to work on the hideous pile of receipts in advance of handing everything off to our sainted accountant for our Income Tax. As I've mentioned before, my personal idea of hell would be me in a room with an adding machine and an endless stack of receipts that needed totalling.
So, long and short of it - didn't get back outside to do a couple of do-overs - but I found the perfect representation of what happens when I spend too much time on my computer doing numbers.....look how the brain cells are falling away from the central core. The two hemispheres are virtually indistinguishable.
I remember this moment well. The adding machine total and the Excel spreadsheet totals didn't agree - no matter how hard I smacked them.
And then I realized that all my brains had fallen out my ears and that the sun had gone down and it was time to open that bottle of wine that I was saving for Friday.....
Much better now.
And so, here are a few more bits from the garden - the Limelight hydrangea - notice how thin the flowers are compared with PeeGee below. Still very pretty.
