Yesterday evening there was an unexpected storm. The skies turned grey before opening and a barrage of hail stones pelted us on the street in London, where we were caught out. The temperature really dropped too and my first thoughts were of our delicate tomato and courgette plants at home. When we got back late I took the torch and went outside to see how they were holding up, terrified I’d find them collapsed and dead looking after the shock of it.
I was blown away by the little courgette which is not only alive in spite of its ailing health but it has flowered. it really lifted my spirits to see how tough our plants are, in spite of a few setbacks the little moments of joy really outweigh the difficulties.
