The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Read the label first ...

Today I bought three fuchsia plants from Aldi - special offer and cheap.

Really lovely looking plants - well developed and bushy. The intent was to plant in small containers and leave on the patio over the summer, then moving them to a greenhouse to over winter.

I've transferred them to slightly larger ceramic pots - so far so good.

Only then did I read the label and discover that the spread will be 6' x 6' - far too big for the pots and the patio.

Hopefully they will become pot bound and stay small but in future I'll have to remember to read the labels first.

A lesson well learnt - like all lessons in life ...

As one says this side of the Pennines. 'There is no such thing as owt for nowt.'

Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
