One thing, and another, and some pretty pictures

I was going to post about our trip to the Everglades which for me was one of the highlights of our trip to Florida, but I think I might wait until I've got the energy to do it justice.
I've spent most of the past few days singing in various rehearsals and concerts, with - as a sort of grand finale - a guest appearance at the school careers evening tonight, talking to 16-year-olds about journalism as a career. So I am in desperate need of a lie-down and a cup of tea. (No change there, then.)
However, my friend Heike came round on Monday to photograph Mario and Luigi - the hilarious results of which I hope to show you soon. Heike is a photographer and she's just started marketing a range of greetings cards, which include some fabulous flower images. Since Mother's Day, and Easter and so on, is all on the horizon, I thought you might like to see them.
She's selling through eBay (if you're based in the UK) and Etsy (for American customers) and you can have a look by clicking here and here. I love the parrot tulips shown here - they light a up a cold rainy March day like a fire. Heike also specialises in cats and dogs - hence the pictures of Mario and Luigi. Today, a pair of naughty little fridge raiders, tomorrow, who knows? Feline supermodels, smirking at me from the cover of Vogue, perhaps?

Looking forward to seeing the photos of Mario and Luigi. I'm sure they'll be fab based on those tulip photos :)

Very pretty photos. Your Everglades trip sounds interesting!
