Holmwood, Greenhouse, Work Attitude
Saturday, 17 Mar 12 Partly Sunny 9°C / 48°F
I should be in bed at the moment, but I’m not feeling tired. I’m still mulling over what was said by my colleagues in the pub on Friday. I do need to buck my ideas up at work and take more responsibility. There’s a lot more to those feelings, but for now, essentially, I need to be more focussed at work.
Tom and I had a lovely day out yesterday in Surrey. We took the train down to Holmwood, via Tulse Hill and Sutton. The atmospheric mist descended just as we walked into the dense deciduous woodland, giving me some fantastic photo opportunities. Fog always adds depth to a soft landscape, never failing to hide or show the right things.
I’m really getting into mosses and lichens, but haven’t even scratched the surface of their science. They’re something I’d like to get into, and I aim to know as much about them as I do about fungi, which is at least a scratch!
Tulips are rising on the list of passions currently. They’re so dazzling and diverse.
Today I repotted a lot of things, and caught up with everything that needed attention in the greenhouse and the 5×3m plot, so no guilt at all!
