Packing dot com

Yes, we are off to Italy again.  Packing a small carry on case to last me three weeks, trying to include more going out clothes and less work wear as we have no big project planned for this visit.  Sock yarn is selected, paperbacks picked.
 Meantime, I've been working really hard in my Scottish garden, I have to say it's looking the best I've ever seen it so I'm a little reluctant to miss the spring activity but then I'm wondering about the sunflower and herb seeds I planted in Lazio.   I did think I would l grow less this year in Scotland but it seemed wrong to leave the veggie patch empty so I have planted potatoes, beans and peas, and what would a garden be without sweet peas, then there are the herbs and hanging baskets.  
The automatic watering system is set in the greenhouse, I got drenched this morning checking that all the pots were getting a drink.   
I always say I'll try to keep in touch, I will, I really will.


  1. How lovely, have a great time. I find it hard to leave my garden too!

  2. Good luck with the packing. We ended up filling the car, only just managing to fit Boo in. Have a great time.

  3. It must be weird having a foot in each camp (so to speak). Enjoy your trip. xxxxxx

  4. Have a great time in Italy. Hope you have your toenails varnished to flaunt them in your flip flops. Very jealous! Made some delicious focaccia bread using your olive oil this week. Here's to a good crop again this year.

  5. Hope you have a fabulous time!!!!! Ros
