I swear I write, but the weather is lovely today and it is a public holiday, so I popped out and bought some gorgeous flowers.
I hope the photo shows you the astonishing green colour of the carnations, but I have a feeling it bleached out. Oh well, you’ll just have to trust me. It’s an astonishing colour, so I’ve snipped off the bottom of the carnation stems and I’m hoping to strike the cuttings.
And since I was in the garden taking photos, here are my daikon. They look scarily like weeds.
The tomatoes are going well, though the fruit doesn’t want to ripen. You can just see the blurry orange colour through the leaves.
You’d think the disaster with the okra would have taught me not to try to grow things out of season, but no. Here is my new Chinese gooseberry plant.
I started Brodie and Sophie’s story — the one that is going to be a full length novel. Eek! — but realised I’d been too nice to them again; i.e. not enough conflict. So I’ve thrown out the false start, sat down and brainstormed some heart breaking life events for my poor couple, and I’m all ready to go, go, go … tomorrow! 🙂
