We went off to the Moville Garden Centre this afternoon. We had seen the sign in a previous walk, so we knew it was down a lane off the next street over. We did not know how far down the lane it was, but we decided to find out. I wanted to get a bag of compost (dirt) and some herbs.
We walked down the lane and around the curve and were greeted by some sheep--Karen O, they send greetings to you and Ramses :-)
We put the dirt in our backpacks and the guy put our herbs in a tray to which he added a handle and off we went home.
We dropped off our stuff and then went out for a walk. It was warm and close today, but there is always a good breeze coming off the sea on the shore walk--at least when we are heading away from town! On the way back the breeze is at our backs and it feels significantly warmer!
The water was blue and green today.
A quick glance might lead you to think that this little tree is dead, but it ain't dead yet!
The best place for these plants seems like it is the window in the landing, so I have put them out there for now even though that is the farthest point from the kitchen. We have a window over the sink that would be great, except that it does not get sun. I kept a container of garlic in the sitting room with the few houseplants we have there and I stuck the chocolate mint in a bedroom--both rooms are on the sunny side of the building. I will just keep an eye on everything and see how it goes, moving stuff around as necessary.
