Rainy day activity
For the past few days it has rained. It has rained so much that it constantly sounds like the final verse of the 12 Days of Christmas on our roof. And then it has rained some more. All of which means that it has not been ‘get out in the garden and do some work’ weather.
Needing something to do with my time other than spend it glued to the computer, I decided to make the most of some birthday presents I had been given – some wooden garden labels – and got around to writing some plant names on them in coloured pencil.
It will be helpful for me to get into the habit of labelling things as I often don’t and then don’t have a clue what is where. Mystery is all well and good but there are times when it’s very inconvenient. The pencil won’t last forever, but it won’t easily wash off either. Most of all, I like how they look and that’s important in my garden. Funky and useful. We could do with more of that round here.
