But I'm not the type to give up without a fight and I love a challenge.
In the garden of the house where I work they have some Love In A Mist growing. I like this plant, it reminds me of my Mum as we had some in our garden when I was a kid and it was always my favourite, so I have taken some bulbs and also a little cutting from the Bay tree and am trying again to cultivate some greenery.
Not sure whether it's me or the plants that need luck but wish us both some anyway.
I brought the cuttings home at the week-end so yesterday afternoon I went to the local DIY store to get some pots and compost to plant them.
I found some really nice little pots to get them started in. There was a broken terracotta pot on the ground, I thought I'd take it as I could use it instead of stones in the bottom of the pots for drainage. I checked with the man in charge of the gardening section who said it was fine, then piled the pieces up and put them in the bottom of the shopping cart.
I get to the checkout and the girl looks in the cart at this ......
"Did you know that pot was broken ?"
Noooooo......You're fucking kidding me right ?
Yeah it's a make your own pot kit - you just glue them together
How many GCSEs do you need to work here then.
Ten out of ten for observation.
It's a modern art pot. (Surrealism at it's best).
How stupid ?
Talk about state the fucking obvious.
I'm very tempted to wait until she's working again and see if I can get a refund.
|This is what Love In A Mist is supposed to look like, if I get anything other then brown stalks I will be suitably impressed.|
Oh fuck ! Did I just write a post about flowers ?
Shoot me if I do it again.
