Sunday 8 a.m.

I woke up very early this morning with the sound of battering rain against my window… I immediately thought of the plants, stretching their leaves to collect as much rainwater as possible, then switched back to a more self-centered thought : zut ! No basking in the sun today, my favourite passtime after lunch…

I decided to take my indoor plants out for a shower ; rainwater will clean their leaves and moisture their compost deeply and efficiently. With indoor pots, I like mixing small rooted specimens with bigger plants, and the problem is to keep on moisturizing just the surface to keep the little ones healthy, while the bigger plants are happy with just a weekly feed of water.
So there I was, early bird plotting around the terraces, moving pots, removing dead and dry bits.
