The plum blossom has survived the rain and wind we’ve had all week, and this morning I noticed the neighbour’s clematis has sent a tendril over the fence with these two flowers attached.

I picked our remaining grapefruit this morning, and found this little creature on a leaf. Not welcome near my vegetable garden, I found it a new home amongst the ferns and Pittosporum in the farthest corner of the yard.
