I started this post with a long rambling discourse about plants and flowers and bounteous beauty and blah, blah, blah, blah. Yawn. It's all been written before. I have a tendency to wax lyrical, and to be honest I don't have the talent for it!!
But here's the thing.
I am obsessed.
With planting seeds.
And growing them.
And potting on.
And planting out
And giving away.
I'll parade you round and point out this and that. I may thrust a plant or two - courgette anyone? Snapdragon? Dahlia? - into your hands. No, go on take it. I've got loads more. I just like planting seeds, you see. It's like magic. It gives me this satisfied full up happy feeling.
And as you back away, nervously clutching your plant, remember.......
It all started with a couple of packets of wild flowers seeds to plant with Olly.
