Groot Pot, Mardi Gras and Big Bang (and interesting title... well maybe more bizarre)

Just cause I think he's adorable!

Look what a friend dropped off for me today.  This gorgeous creation was made by local artist Martin Jackson from  Unique Head Pots

Now to find the perfect thing to plant!

Thought I'd better do a final shot of my Mardi Gras before it goes dormant as well...

Pretty isn't she!

'Big Bang' is no slacker either :)

Random shots of (mostly) flowers

Graptopetalum rusbyi flowers

Just thought I would show off its beautiful flower. Typical graptopetalum this one....

Beautiful aren't they

In unrelated news, today I got confirmation of something I have long suspected.
The world is broken.
