Worth the wait.
Wonderful to find a vase the colour of eucalyptus leaves.
William, James and Diana: thankyou for your comments. My computer's still a bit dicey at the moment, so I'll leave it at that for now, and hope I can resume normal activity - and checking your own wonderful blogs _ - shortly!
beautiful pic - happy new year and I wish you 2012 with minimal IT problems (and health and happiness, the usual). cheers Faisal from cm
Very nice Mr F - will you be posting a photo every six months? Or not quite so regularly? Well worth waiting for mind! D
