Blue sky, spring is just around the corner

After the rain, blue sky. Every thing is green and looking re-freshed. My Grandfather told me (when I was a wee child, some 70 years ago) that if there was enough blue in the sky to make a sailor boy a new pair of pants, the rain was over. I don't believe this, but its a good story.
Remember the Ox-tongue lillies with their strange looking red flowers ? This is how they got their name, the leaves look like a pair of tongues
And the Jonquils are in bloom, meaning that spring is around the corner. The pic. is a tad "fudgy" (not because of the photographer being a little wobbly) the breeze kept the blooms moving, so I couldn't get a clear shot. Many weeds in my garden still, I haven't been able to tend to it since I had my hip replacement, but, I did prune the 3 roses and cut back some of the penstemons, that is before my back caved in. Tomorrow is another day.

Lovely piccies! You must have been quick to catch the blue sky. One minute we have sunny weather and the next it's raining again. We have a few jonquils out too. :)

I saw the first few pink petals out on the big tree magnolia down in the Bot. Gardens from a bus today, and the tulip leaves are starting to peep through too in there.

This afternoon gave weak sunshine from the north west plus rain and clouds from the south east at the same time. Life Down Under!

Hi Olive. Glad to see you are back posting again. GB has just brought in the first of the jonquils from our garden. Spring is certainly on its way. We lived in South Australia about 25 years ago for a couple of years. You have just reminded me of those wet winters. OOooh cold wet winters. Brrr. Its good to see those blue skies again isn't it!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
