It's the one time of the year when I can take time out completely with no flower concerns and although I was assuming I'd just be hunkering down at home and getting on with planning and sorting, something rather wonderful has just happened. Completely out of the blue some friends have asked me to join them as their guest on a trip around the Moluccas. It seems to involve a schooner, nature and volcanos.
So on my birthday I shall be in Papua New Guinea. Now that's not something I was ever expecting to say!
