|Aeonium arboreum 'atropurpureum'|
I just wanted to remind myself as I sit up late and write up endlessly - I'm doing it for the flowers. The Aeonium I really love and need to get a new one of, I gave mine away to a friend when I moved up here. I love them and they are gorgeous - I was trying my new camera out on this one a while back. Beautiful isn't it? It will do OK on the windowsill here but not in the garden.
I'm going to chance this in the garden, I love Iris and this type in particular - the colours are so vivid. I will definitly be getting a few of those for this years planting.
Rather to my surprise up here - this gorgeous plant festoons many a garden - looks far to delicate and pure to work up in my climate - but the fleshy flowers I guess seem to tolerate the climate - I'm going to treat myself to some of those as well. I do like this picture and am very chuffed I took it myself with my lovely camera (thank you db)
I'm going to do this after I've finally finished and written up - handed in - thrown away my laptop (OK maybe not throw it away - just don't sit writing at it for hours and hours) and I know that I've learnt now to just to read a book on a subject I'm interested in rather than study anymore.
Anyone, anywhere writing up - I salute you and hope its going OK. Now and again I need to remind myself that flowers do provide an income (they have for many years during study) and I need to have more faith in my ability to depend on them. I also need to remember to enjoy them very much once I'm finished.
