To me there is nothing quite as satisfying as giving somebody a seedling, or plant that you have grown. It feels me with immense pleasure that I have firstly been able to grow it, and secondly that it might bring that person joy.
So far this year I have gifted several tomato plants, some chitted potatoes, and I shall be soon giving friends courgettes and spare sweetcorn. I have also been able to divide my prayer plant (Calathea amabilis) into several new plants which have since gone to friends. These make excellent house plants, require little water and attention. They boast lush foliage which is a pretty asset to any room.
My recent absence in the blogging world stems from my return to placement this past week. I thought I would have more time this weekend, but Saturday morning gave rise to an impromptu visit to Edinburgh! We were only there for 20 hours delivering a friend’s car to them, and it was my first ever visit. I must say from the little I saw, what a beautiful city it is, and I really hope to go again soon.
I share with you a few photos 🙂
I am not sure what the flower is in the last photo, but it was lovely in the dappled light…. Does anybody have any suggestions?
Happy Planting 🙂
