I had tried to grow flowers to enliven the front of my house. The phlox and lobelias hadn't played ball. The nasturtiums had grown into sizeable plants but hadn't flowered yet! But then I came back from the Netherlands and what did I find? Nasturtium flowers! They had done it. Cool! And my mixed perennials had started to show a bit more variety too. Things are coming together! I like the nice colours in front of the house...
And something in the mixed bed, whatever it is. It looks good!
This blog started as a tool to keep my Dutch friends informed on my whereabouts when I moved abroad. It quickly also became an external memory for my own use. It largely failed as a stage for discussions on whatever is worth discussing. And it has become a way of sharing my scientific knowledge with a lay audience. And who knows, it could become even more! And whatever it is you are looking for among all this: welcome.
