My love affair is a long-standing one.
(thanks, Lucy, for the reason to have a cupboard full of jam jars, knowing one day I would find a use for them x)
I'm not fussy about the colour... the more the merrier.
At this time of year, I can indulge myself completely.
I have to have them surrounding me.
Even when they are dying, they still fill me with joy.
The ones in my garden are growing fast, ready for their fanfare of colour to lift my spirits.
My spirits are in desperate need of lifting.
