It’s amazing how much can change in a week. We went away on holiday and returned 7 days later to find the salad leaves were starting to appear on the windowsill. Now I’ve discovered that I can grow salad leaves indoors all year round (according to my seed packet) it may mean that my collection of vintage lovelies will have to be rehoused somewhere else in the kitchen to make room for more pots.
Meanwhile, in the garden the buds on my Camellia had opened. I planted this just before I went into labour 4 years ago. The two things may or may not have been connected, but I always advise a spot of gardening to heavily pregnant friends.
Happy birthday Camellia, and happy birthday CJ.
