As we approach the shortest day, the weather remains mild here, with day time temperatures up to 16 or 17C, with nights around 12C. With the odd bits of rain as well, things continue to grow well out there. I’ve been able to get out and tidy a bit, but with so many pots now on the terrace, reaching the ones at the back (sorry curry plant and thyme). I really need a reorganisation somehow!

Greetings SoSers from a sunny Wellington, after many a rainy day this week. It has been wet and warm, the sort of weather that makes my hair frizz and things grow. I only have five more working days to go until three weeks of summer/Christmas holiday and I honestly can’t wait to be free of sitting at a computer all day.
