I'm just sitting watching flowers in the rain.

Kind of.

If I look really hard I can see the tree tops from my office window and the jobs adverts on my computer screen. Deciding that its time I find a career I WANT to do rather than a job I'm not that bad at but leaves my mind numb.

Neatness.....a swear word in the garden?

I like neat. I like straight lines, sharp edges, right angles, things in threes or fours to create triangles and squares, and a general nice uniformity that would pass an ISO 9001 inspection with the paperwork twice signed and neatly clipped in a folder.

I wonder if this is why I prefer vegetable plants to pretty flowers? They lend themselves so much more naturally to lines.

(I'm the kind of person who irons socks so they look more neat in the drawer).

All my tomatoes are outside and the greenhouse will be getting dismantled very soon (supposedly). Looks like I might nip over to Aldi to see if they still have any of those plastic frames to put things in with impending chilly weather. Mine is designated for my chilli collection. 

Feeling very sorry for myself this morning & starting to wonder about finding a job I can work from job if needed. Anyone need a pillow tester? I have very high standards. 

How Safe is Your Garden?

Mike you've not failed anything. You found a need for this information and then found that if we actually look its there. Job done.

Now if you need a job to do start practicing your signature to sign OLs copy of your gardening manual when you get that published!

That's odd! I got an email near instantly. If it doesn't go through or you don't hear anything send me a PM Mrs.G & I'll order you some and we can meet up to exchange! I'm sure between us, KEF, and the rest of us S.Yorkshire bunch if your order did appear unexpectedly we'd be able to "loose" the extra 48!

Lavenders ordered but I can't see anywhere that says when they'll be delivered!
