Not a word you’ll hear from me very often, but I was doing it this afternoon. We even went to the garden centre and bought some flowers (pansies, for ultimate comedy) and herbs.

My gran was a keen gardener – flowers and fruit & veg – but I’ve never been. I’ve picked up a bit from her, but I have a bad way with them. Basically, they die at my hands.

So we’ll only have to see how it goes. I have loads of seed packets but they all need planting April-time which is no good now.

But at least those herb pots that I bought 15 years ago are now in use 😉
