Away

These flowers were fully closed when they were bought. The balcony plant was much smaller a few months ago and it is showing signs of the end of its life. Mostly cruelly, they have both gone down the rubbish chute because we are away on holidays to Perth and both would be dead by the time we return.


There was still some food in the fridge, so my breakfast/brunch was cereal with half a banana, 1/3 of a tub of youghurt, 1/2 an avocado and a chew on the last of roast lamb still on the bone.

See you all in a bit.

  1. Put your pots out on the balcony when you go away. The plants will die anyhow if there is a total drought, but if any rain falls at all, they will be lapping it up :)

    Have a great time.

  2. You threw away that lovely white impatiens? You could have dropped it off at my place on your way across to Perth. (*~*)
    what is that other tiny plant next to it? Looks like a succulent of some sort.

  3. Have fun. And I am not ruthless enough to dispose of that impatiens...

  11. Andrew, Whoops I missed your previous Cornwall train post. You must have put two posts up on Tues, so only the 'Away' post keeps showing up in my blog link.
    Ah and you missed all the news of the Queen's 90th Birthday.
    About keeping certain indoor plants alive and thriving while going away on holiday. I often lay a damp cloth in the sink, then sit the plant on top of the cloth and leave one of the taps dripping but just very faintly. I find that it keeps it going...just about.

    Have a great time in Perth. The journey route looks so similar to the trip from Paddington London heading out West to Cornwall.
    Hoping to put up a post with this year's planned Cornwall trips plus a post on the new King's Cross train station.
    Dee.
