It’s freezing, Inuit

Hippeastrum flower spikeIt’s been a week since I last posted. So you’d expect me to have been busy at the allotment, not photographing Hippeastra.

There’s tons to do there, after all; digging, weeding, manuring – even a bit of harvesting (parsnips, carrots and Jerusalem artichokes).

Sadly, though, I’ve done bugger-all. It’s not because I’ve been busy… although I have. Truth is, I’ve been too bloody lazy. The weather’s been so fiendishly cold that all I’ve wanted to do is eat and sleep.

There’s something about scraping ice off your car in the morning that puts you in a dim frame of mind for outdoor activities. It’s weather for eskimos, not gardeners.

    So well put Soilman! And your post title is inspired 😀

    Me too. At least I have to go out to walk the dog. Otherwise I’d never go out. Eat, sleep – and order seeds…
