Honesty

How do you feel about honesty?

Well, honesty matters to me very much… 

Hence, my slight dismay upon sighting the following:


I hadn’t realised that honesty was part of the brassica family. But with so many leaves munched it must have been a good meal for the cabbage white caterpillars.

The one plant which germinated in the front garden seems, fortunately, to be intact, so I will see what happens there. It’s really the pretty seedheads I’m hoping for  – to be honest (no pun intended), I’d not even thought what the flowers would be like themselves. So, as with many other things in my garden, it’s a case of wait and see…..

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.
