I’m writing this from my manager’s dining room because I’m in Wellington at the moment! It’s been a really lovely trip so far, even if it did start out really bumpy :) Our landing yesterday was a true ‘Wellington’ landing — very shaky with the plane swaying its wingtips from side to side at an alarming rate.
Apparently if a pilot can land a plane in Wellington on a windy day, they can pretty much land the plane anywhere!
It was cold and rainy yesterday, just like in Christchurch, but today was absolutely stunning — the sun was shining and the wind was very well-behaved. I can’t complain, really! And there are two resident kitties here that are very friendly, too.
My manager’s husband is the awesome guy I bought my raised garden beds from, and when I got here there was a new model for me to see! It’s actually inspired by one my step-dad built my Mom many years ago.
If I had room for one of these in our front yard, I would so get one!
Pretty nifty, don’t you think? There’s nine compartments in all to plant in — the main one up top, and four each on the lower levels. I think heaps of strawberries would look great in one of these for someone!
Or perhaps different lettuces in each part, or a mix of herbs and other plants like they have here. There are tomatoes in the top of this one with basil, parsley, chives, and thyme in the smaller compartments, along with a couple of small courgette plants and a capsicum plant.
If only I had more room. It’s hard not to want more plants in your garden. This I know.
I called Ben today and he swears he watered everything! We shall see when I get home, lol. I do miss him & the kitties.
Do you ever wish you had more room for plants in your garden?
