Never mind the rain

    1. It’s pelting down today. Poor Hibiscus … looking decidedly bedraggled, her denim in a sorry state. So glad I got to photograph her when she’d only suffered a short burst of rain on her beautiful petals ๐Ÿ™‚ xxxx


    1. I love the fact that the variety is actually called Denim Revolution. My other Hibiscus picture (soon to be posted) is of a variety called White Lightning. That’s very pretty, too, with maroon in its centre.

  1. Hi Sarah,
    I just saw this in my writing group newsletter and thought of you. If anyone can come up with a fun techie haiku, it’s you!
    2. Again open worldwide, this comp from ThinkGeek is for techie haiku. Surely if itโ€™s funny, as most entries are, then itโ€™s a senryu? Either way, you could win a $50 ThinkGeek voucher. If a friend or relative does your tech support, as in my case, then giving them the voucher would be a great way to say thank you. Or, you know, you could actually pay them, though that seems a bit extreme. After all, theyโ€™re IT people and weโ€™re writers. They have all the money already.

    1. I do quite a lot of my own tech support, but when I’m really stumped, I call on my brilliant computer repair person, Amanda, who refurbished and installed my amazing desktop PC. I see the voucher is in dollars. Not sure if the voucher is valid in the UK. Will check this out, though, Naomi. It sounds fun. Thanks.

      1. I know how that goes! Sometimes it takes a whole day of pacing, groaning, running to the kitchen for a cup of coffee, before I can settle back into writing–especially if it’s an assigned theme.

      2. I’m having that trouble at the moment, trying to write a guest post for one of my other blogging friends. She’s been waiting two or three months now, I think, and I’ve got a complete mental block about it. She’s very patient, though, and is willing to wait until 2017!
