No time for gardening at the present as we're clearing out a lot from Dad's house and skipping so much. He needs a major reconstruction job done on his floors, and will need to move out for a while.

This morning before I went up to fill the skip, I took photos of my lovely Begonia purchase in Fota two years ago. Very windy all day and difficult getting photos outdoors. It's a reliable Begonia, and ever so pretty.

Aches and pains all over this evening and I'm now regretting having taken out our bath years ago.

I was imagining you with a skipping rope for a minute! That is a lovely Begonia.

Lovely Begonia, Jacinta.  I was helping an elderly friend clear out stuff yesterday; it's amazing what we accumulate over the years!  Hope the works go well for your Dad.

Lovely begonia. What a bother on your dad having to move out.

Don't regret the bath, Jacinta - five minutes under a shower so hot it nearly lifts your skin has the same effect LOL
