Day 29 – Roses Are Red…

Violets are blue, Sugar is sweet, And so are you.. Thus the rhyme goes – apparently it dates back to 1590 !

My wife loves roses, and red happens to match the decor of our kitchen, so they are a pretty common sight there. Sadly we don’t seem to be very good at growing them in the garden, but there’s always the florists or supermarket…

Day 25 – To Boldly Grow…

I’m not a fan of house plants – actually I really dislike them… However, at Christmas, my 90 year old aunt gave us an Amaryllis bulb, and it seemed to be the decent thing to do to plant it and see what happened. Well, against the odds, it did grow, and this is the second flush of flowers from it – pretty impressive from something so unloved…
