Daffodils in the morning

Last weekend, my dad gave me some miniature daffodils. And hurray, they are blooming and adding some cheer to the front windowsill.


These will later go in the garden to join their cousins out there. Not a great deal of evidence of the latter right now but it would be a pity if they all came at once, wouldn’t it?

Anyway, from being so often at the front windowsill to tend the flowers and vegetables growing and blooming there, I have had ample opportunity to observe the sun on that side of the house. I’ve discovered in any case that the front is North-East facing, which means it is already getting about two hours of sun a day, maybe more at the edge furthest from the house.

That bodes well for growing in the now lawn-less patch. Still thinking about what I’m actually going to do, though.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
