Sunday in Spring


Freezing temperatures, cold winds and sheer bloody mindedness mean I spent the afternoon on the balcony potting plants – repotting my chilis hoping they will do well and grow, planting pansies, and generally getting ready for summer, which now that I am chilled to the bone is very clearly a long way off. I have little to show for my pains other than pansies in a pot, Mediterranean herbs (5 types of thyme, they all looked really pretty, so I got the whole lot), some oregano, strawberries and something called a Pepino, which was on sale for about 1 dollar, and so I got it, but now I realize I have to keep it inside until the weather gets better so it’s taking up indoor space, also something known as a big sage  (lantana camara) – same story, low price, cute plant, needs to wait for the weather to improve, so it’s indoors.
