Urban Windowsill Garden in London

Since moving to London a year ago, my “gardening” has been confined to the windowsill or occasionally a side table. The plants are suffering from radiator burn, overwatered but dry.

This is the morning scene. Farmer Ffin (on my computer above) is living in China with his grandparents. We hope he can immigrate to the UK later this year.  The windowsill gardenia buds and browns. The Rosemary hangs on. The plant on the left that I rescued from the hallway (not sure its genus and species…any help?) is bursting from its pail. 

The poinsettia distracts from the dirty windows.

Our plan is to soon move into a new flat with a patch of soil. : )

Stay tuned!

Because everyone loves a puppy doing yoga

Yes, this is a shameless ploy to get traffic through exploitation of my cute puppy, but I’m sure if Beaffin could understand computers he would be happy being a blog star. He is quite cute in the Bhujangasana position, don’t you think?beaffin in Bhujangasana position

His “warrior pose” recently made it on the “cutest puppy” blog here.
