Alfie had fun throwing and catching a plant pot with a seed tray, May 24th.

Alfie asked me to take this photo and now I like it very much. It captures something of the happy life of the garden child, or perhaps it just reminds me of the happiness in the moment it was taken?

 It might have filled out more if I didn't keep dividing plants to grow more elsewhere.

Poppies, June 3rd.

The living room in spring, most are vegetable plants but lots of flowers from seed too, March 8th.

 I was short of small pots so I searched high and low, I eventually found 70 filled with Crassula ovata (Jade Plant / Money Plant) upstairs, Zoe (now 14 yrs) propagated them a few years ago, in response Zoe counted my plants, 690 on that particular day in February in the living room. As those went out to the tunnel and garden there were more in March and again in April!
