Big and yellow

December cometh, with associated frost and nippiness. I was out at 6.30 to go to work in the dark, scraping the ice of the car with the heating turned up to max. It feels like Summer was a long time ago, but whilst flicknig through the photos on my phone, I came across this:

Ah . . . bask in it's sunniness. A quick reminder that it was quite nice around here just a few months ago.

This is relevant to the blog because it was the result of the fecund growth of the Tropicarium I regaled you with a while ago: http://gravelfarm.blogspot.com/2008/11/growth-medium.html

More bulletins as events warrant!


  1. Ah, sweet success! I grew a couple of sunflowers once. The Bluejays promptly plucked the seeds and planted them in various places in my anal-rententive neighbor's obsessively cultivated gardens. I enjoyed that.

  2. That's really nice. Sunflowers and purple lilies are my favorite flowers.


  3. Suddenly I feel all summery. It's cold in SW1 and I resent the intrusion of cold into my otherwise warm disposition. Could you post a picture of a coal fire (but without the Victorian chimney sweep)and then I'd feel toasty warm.


  4. lol - well this pic seems to have done the trick. I think Douglas has discovered covert therapy for his neighbour.

    I need to whittle a victorian coal fire for Mafame DeF. then . . .

Otherwise, have a go. S'fun.
