I spent most of the day working on office stuff. I finished one project and sent in the completed work. Then, I started on a new project. I also completed my time sheet for this week, showing medical time off taken to go to my doctors' appointments and taking vacation time off tomorrow and Friday to prepare for the almsgiving.
I also attended to my medical insurance renewal for next year.
In the afternoon, I took a lunch break to go for a walk and then, strolled around the front garden, a bit. One of the plants, an arrowhead vine, that is being grown in a pot but was placed in the front flower bed to fill in a bare spot had fallen over and I went to straighten it up. But it kept falling over, so I moved it up on to the step leading to the front door, and moved the pot of succulents down a step:
I found I had to tug a bit to get the pot off the flower bed - apparently, one of the vines had rooted itself to the soil! That piece of vine broke off and I left it in the ground to grow.

Hopefully, it will fill in that bare spot!
My red climbing rose is doing well after all that rain we had; it had another flower and several buds:

The three jade plants by the edge of the garden are beginning to flower:

Not to be outdone, the aloe along the wall is also sending out a flower stalk:

I had stuck a piece of euphorbia in the side of the pot with the arrowhead vine and it has grown there quite happily! I think, after the excitement of the almsgiving is over, I will ask my gardener to replant it somewhere else in the garden.
