Steven and I, as I've told you in years before, are late,

But the flowers we couldn't find anywhere this year were
Nasturtiums, which are one of my favourites. Seriously
we've been to 5 or 6 garden centres looking for these

Thank you Cathy at the store, and her siamese companion
cat, Marley for making us very happy. May the planting begin.
Have a loving your life day.
