..... today, with the shortest day of the whole year. It's a grey miserable one, too, although it's quite mild.
As expected, yesterday's saga with the new water heater needed a second visit from the plumber to replace the control board of the new tank since it wasn't working at all. He wasn't surprised, saying it's not uncommon for them to be faulty! Let's hope it lasts, now.
This camellia was bought for very little at a local supermarket, as it had been neglected and it was looking quite poorly. Nursed back to health, it's now looking really strong, and this is the first time it's flowered for Christmas. There are plenty of buds, too, so hopefully it will give some colour through the winter months ahead.
