He's been! Not Santa - Jack! He had hoped to come earlier in the week but today was the day.
My (solar powered) nodding flower died recently after over two years faithful nodding so Jack decided to remedy the situation. He brought me not just a nodding flower but also a joggling monkey.
He worked like a Trojan tidying the garden. We had the first of the cauliflowers, this blushing beauty. The outside of the curd was a lovely pinky shade which disappeared on cooking. I've never had much success with caulis but I've got three this year. I shall pick the other two very soon as they may bolt.
We some lovely runner beans and potatoes from the garden with faggots for lunch. I've got loads of beans to freeze as well. I'm eating cherry tomatoes like sweets!

And before he left Jack picked these two lovely bunches of flowers.
Truly he brought jokiness and he left joy.
