Esther's garden

Pots dripping with lobelia, geraniums, gazania. A cat rolling on the bright patio. The sudden kerfuffle of pigeons flapping their wings. A dark red rose hiding at the back of the hedge. Freshly boiled home grown potatoes for lunch. Being told the name of that acid orange flower, and having to ask again ten minutes later. Monbretia.
