I’ve had a mostly quiet, and relaxing, time over the past couple of weeks for which I’m thankful as I often find this time of year difficult to cope with.
A present to myself was a packet of Chrysanthemum ‘Crazy Daisy’ seeds. Among the other various useful presents and prizes I opened one package on Christmas Day morning to find that it included a large colourful woolly slug which had me laughing out loud.
The chocolate biscuits that I mentioned recently didn’t last long as I ate them whilst enjoying reading Alan Bradley’s fourth Flavia de Luce book.
Most days have been mild but overcast and often wet, which can get a bit dispiriting. A few sunny ones would have been welcome for my occasional walks round the plot. As it is I’ve spent much of the time armchair gardening and watching the antics of various birds out front.
Happy New Year…Flighty xx
