In a fit of enthusiasm I had decided (on a bright Sunny day), I would have at least half an hour in the garden every day, whatever the weather. We woke up this morning to wet and cold, my husband had been “frozen” during the night, so the winter duvets have gone on.
So, I am a failure, I took the re-cyclables to the bins, and headed back indoors.
It may be damp outside, but I can sit and look at the Pumkins, I think they are more properly gourds or squashes, that I was given to bring home from Germany, they are on display with plastic acorns on a gold plate. (Camera needs new batteries) photos will have to follow.
I brought some home previously and they lasted nine months before rotting. We have an ex German-policeman friend who grows them by the thousand, he has a pile outside his house that people can take away. They go in for seasonal doorstep displays, when we arrived it was all little bowls of heather and cyclmen, when we left it was various size of pumkins. If we did doorstep displays here they would get stolen!
