I have a little stash of test tubes, once given to me by a friend who worked in a lab (nearly 20 years ago!) Because I keep everything, I can now use a couple of these for rooting plants.
I have had my angel-wing begonia for many years and am always snipping off bits to grow into new plants. The original cutting was given to me by Di, a wonderful friend with a brilliant sense of humour and excellent bridge-playing skills, who has – very very sadly – since moved to a higher plane. I still think of her often, and still laugh about the joke she told at our first bridge get-together, about the rabbi and the prawn. It’s a killer (and clean), but has to be heard, not read. Sorry.
And hanging from the burglar bars in the kitchen, it’s nicer than the view of the paving slabs. It’s a bit overcast here today THANKS BE (yesterday was a scorcher, still recovering).
Back soon x
