Tuesday 26 April 2011: Lazy azalea
OK, so it's not a lazy azalea, it's a dead azalea, but I'm short on inspiration today...
I'm now out of the post-op recovery period, through the first set of bank holidays and officially on holiday - hurrah. But, I spent today sorting through and filing the build-up of paperwork in my office - boo.
The poor azalea died over winter, and I noticed it a month or so ago and decided it would make a good subject for a day when I had no good blip opportunity. Hubby's been tutting every time he looks at it and moved it at the weekend from the decking to the passage around the side of the house - leaving it at the halfway point between its former home and the bins. I took this, and the fact that our garden waste is due to be collected this week, as a hint that it was time for me to send the poor thing on its way to plant heaven - also known as Huntingdonshire District Council compost.
As much as I love living plants, I also have a fascination for the 'skeletons' that remain when they die. Even without life, they can still look quite beautiful.
I was very indecisive today, so hubby chose this version. The alternative is here.
