Note: Most of my rhodies are thick and hale, it’s just that this one is quietly hidden under a camellia tree and doesn’t see a speck of direct sun, hence its spindly, yet duck-friendly aspect. Can’t wait for the ducklets!

Update: Evidence of two ducklets detected.

Not only was there severe damage to the building, the bird’s nest was destroyed in the blaze, leaving the doo homeless – [that’ll teach the bugger not to drop a lighted cigarette!]
