Fleurs

Georgie rang ce matin and asked if anything's sprouted up in the jardin while we were away in Paxos. Told her that the weeds seem to be doing remarkably well. Also, a few orangey thingies, which I presume aren't weeds. Tried to describe them but the best I could come up with was "orangey coloured with pointy bits" which wasn't much help. Then she asked if any blue flowers had appeared. To be honest I didn't know, so I went for a quick lap of the estate. Spotted some blue thingies down by the compost pile. Interesting down there because a few spuds I chucked out weeks ago, instead of rotting down, appear to have made themselves at home and started growing. And mighty impressive they look too. Anyway, I was unable to give Georgie a description of the blue thingies because, by the time I'd got back indoors, I'd forgotten what the damned things looked like. So she asked for some photos...
