in big cardboard boxes stuffed to the gills with garden-y goodness!
They say money can't buy you love, but it certainly can buy happiness and loads of it.
Last Saturday for slightly more than 20 euros I bought these plants for my garden.
Some were put into containers to enhance the enjoyment that is gardening. These plants above not only gladden the eye but the nose as well. I love scented plants and can never ever have enough of them. These little darlings are now comfortably ensconced in my potager on a little table right next to my Victorian greenhouse. So every time I pop in and out of the greenhouse my nose curls with delight and when I sit at the table I'm in danger of getting entirely too frivolous for my own good because the flower-y fragrance goes straight to my head, and in a big way. Who needs cocaine when you can have this? It may be equally addictive, but much better for your health and general well being, wouldn't you agree?
The other plants I popped in my new border to enable the resident gardener to a spot of spirit lifting from practically every room of the house. And some spirit lifting is required today as it's raining. Again!
In other news today: YE is
Sentimental, moi? Pull the other one! I'll have you know that I'm, according to the Jung-Briggs-Meyers typology, a Rationalist Mastermind. There, it's been scientifically proven that I'm a rationalist so it must be true. ;-)
I do hope that you have joined me in the sowing of the seeds of love, and love it is indeed, because what spells love more clearly than making this planet of ours even more beautiful with our environmental friendly gardens and sowing, growing and preparing the food for our loved ones with our own fair(ly mucky) hands?
Sowing the seeds of love is probably the most sensible and loving thing any one of us could ever do.
