I am utterly depressed today but I am sitting here on my wee sofa, looking at those gorgeous yellow tulips surrounded by 6 Valentines on the table; they have a little bit of the palest blue sky above them and on the dresser next to that table sits 2 seed trays - life and love and hope are all around me. May it seep into me as the day goes on.
*****Andrew planted leek seeds last night; he had been getting super anxious about the lack of sowing done so far, so now the new allotment year has offically started in our home. We chose good old 'Musselburgh' again and 'Lyon 2 Prizetaker' so fingers crossed. I shall now be staring at these darn trays intently, waiting for that first speck of green, think me not crazy, but I may even talk to them ~ you know, to encourage them to grow and poke their little heads up into this big bad world. Who knows, one of these could indeed be a prize taker, as this year I think the lotties are going to get more competitive ;)
