I'm in the process of switching computers and keep finding unpublished drafts, which I'm popping up on their correct date as I come across them. They're tagged 'better late than never' - so if you get some random updates over the next little while, that's why.
Here's an orange poppy from the weekend, my friend gave me a punnet of seedlings in the middle of winter. They were planted outside my bedroom window and I've been watching the buds. The weather's been a bit wild as they start to unfurl, which provides a great excuse to cut each one for inside, to be gazed upon tenderly. I'd love a snooze on those petals. Oh, to be Thumbelina.
