One-liner Wednesday – dreaming of things to come

The love of gardening is a seed once sown that never dies.

Gertrude Jekyll

… and I’m looking forward to spending more time in my greenhouse in 2023.

There are a couple of major decisions to be made this week that affect me and my learning system. The powers that be (upper management for integration) are deciding which system to choose. As the company buying my company has the weightier vote I can guess how it’s going to go.

Little do they know I’m dreaming of plant pots, seeds, garden redesigns and life outside of corporate employment!

In the meantime, I need to hitch my poker face into position and give nothing away!

SoCS – the early bird…

… catches a cold while walking the pup early this morning!

Would you believe we have a hosepipe ban!

I’m a morning person by nature but I have to admit to not matching Pup’s enthusiasm for this morning’s walkies. It was more of a deluge than a downpour.

Mr D was far too excited by the soggy doggy walk. He loves putting on his wellies and splashing through muddy puddles, much to Pup’s amusement. We started out with a Golden Lab but by the time we returned we had filthy wellies and Chocolate Lab!

It takes almost as long as the walk to clean her down and dry her!

I can do without mornings like that.
