I wonder if I can train the lodger to water plants while I am away???

I bought two little vases for £1 in the charity shop. They were labelled as sherry glasses, but no stems? Anyway the lady behind the counter seemed quite aggrieved when she said they were cut glass and good value for £1, and I said that they were only pressed glass, but still useful for £1 as the sweet pea stems are getting shorter.

Sunny here, but not exactly a heatwave.

Sorry about your lilies, Bill. Glad to see you are back.

Holiday plans are going round in circles.

Passport application which was rejected the other day, has now gone in. Crossings out are allowed, but only if done as each letter in a box has to have a cross through it,not line through.!!!

Holiday trip and dive medical emergency evacuation insurance is now sorted. The people that the travel company recommended said they had never heard of them. Back to plan A.

Have got antimalarials. need to book in for jabs. Wonder where I can get some gilliweed for breathing underwater. It would be a lot easier than tanks.( see Lycanthrope/ werewolf thread)

Talkback: Bulb layering in a pot

A sink is just a big pot. Just leave the plug out for a drainage hole, and put plenty of crocks or large gravel in the bottom for drainage.
