Hello from a what has been lovely, sunny Wellington and on my birthday too! Yes, another year has gone by since the last one. Can I also suggest you look at the date? 3 x 7 = 21. How about that? Or is it just me that thought about it?
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!
