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?
