Hello flumpy1. The basil had damping off disease (too cold in my kitchen through the winter) but one teeny plant survived hence the kisscurl. I cannot take credit for the window boxes - they belong to my friend who has a tiny garden. The purple flowers are hyacinths. If you love perfumed flowers like sweet peas, hyacinths are for you, buy the bulbs in July and plant in September. Their perfume is wonderful.
Today I woke up to a very wet Bristol. After staying up late to watch "Pretty Woman" once more on TVand working really hard in the garden yesterday I fell asleep in minutes and only the radio alarm woke me at 7, plus still feeling the effects of loosing an hour last weekend! Still drizzling a bit outside so may do some seed sowing in the conservatory today. I brought a bag of seed compost indoors to warm up yesterday. Glad you like my toys!
