Spring- if you haven't got it, fake it

My Japanese apricot is in flower. Finally. Yeah! Big talk around here that the price of pickled plums will be through the roof this season as the late cold snap (still getting minus temperatures at night) will mean no Japanese apricots this year and that's what you use to make pickled plums. (Apricots into plums? Yup. Don't blame me, I didn't do the translation.) I am not panicking in even the slightest though as I probably have a lifetime's supply of pickled plums under my stairs. And if I should somehow manage to eat all that there's more in the old house...

Today I was trying to take some Spring pictures in the garden:

And Amy asked me what I was doing. I told her and she ran off and then came running back telling me she had a pretty flower for me to take a picture of:


"Wow, a camellia growing out of a fork in the trunk of the yama-something or other tree. That's unusual."

She looked at me for a while with her head on the side and said:

"It's not growing there, Mummy. I just put it there. Don't you know?"

I guess I been told, huh?
