Last week I had a great conversation with a garden designer – all about Chelsea, guerilla gardening, using gardening as part of an art / activism project (The Pansy Project). We even discussed park planting those lovley startling clashing colour combos – these pics I think taken in Soho Square in London last visit. She said that this kind of planting is really the most unsustainable way to plant but I love the mad lush results. I’m 3 days into a course of antibiotics for an infection. And feel truly rubbish. When I turned down a meal out tonight I realised that things were serious. Hence looking at lush lovely colour – tis a comfort. I shall now retire to bed with crochet and undemanding iplayer and await my next dose.
Ooh a wee mantra for 2014? Picture on Leith Walk painted beside The Brass Monkey Pub
Hogmanay Greetings from Paris!
One thing I love are the lights and the decorations. We need as many lights as possible to off set the gloom of midwinter. Some days its been getting dark about 2pm. These pics from Lovecrumbs. I love how they have gilded leaves and put them up. Sorry the pics are a bit rubbish.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): "Now that you don't have to be perfect, you
can be good," says a character in John Steinbeck's novel *East of Eden. I suggest that you make this your rallying cry in 2014, Virgo. In fact, why not begin right now, wherever you are? Say "Now that I don't have tobe perfect, I can be good." Free yourself of the pressure to be the polished, ultimate embodiment of everything you'd ever hoped you would be. That will allow you to relax into being more content with the intriguing creation you have already become. You may be surprised by how much mojo this affords you.

If only my table was as bare! Its piled high with ribbon, paper, sticky tape, tablet wrapped up and a jug of freesias perched horribly near the edge. They were a Christmas treat to myself as I love the smell. Hope things are winding down and you are all able to enjoy the next few days.
