Looking through my photos, it seems I have a lot of orange, from sunsets to flowers to buildings, and I have so many more wonderful photos with that little bit of orange that catches the eye, and brightens up the scene.

My flowers this week, again from my garden, are the lovely colourful and sweet smelling
socks stocks. I was away for a few days and when I got back my garden was looking great with everything in full bloom, it seems my garden thrives on neglect!
I have displayed my flowers in an unusual jug, decorated with birds and elephants, and with elephants climbing up the handle of the jug. I got this jug many years ago from a dear friend. Her house was full of knick knacks and beautiful bits and pieces, as her late husband had been a merchant seaman who travelled all over the world, and always brought back some exotic gift from his travels.

On a visit to Turkey, we went on a tour of Ancient Ephesus, where there are incredible Greek and Roman ruins. Ephesus was founded over 3000 years ago, and it was a major trading capital of the Roman Empire. Hidden among the ruins, in the dry and dusty heat, despite all the thousands and thousands that walk this way each week, this little plant brought a welcome touch of colour to the old stones.
