Welcome back to the blogging world! I've missed you. My company sent me to a seminar last week, so I am way behind on my blog reading. Sorry there is such a long list for an allotment. I hope you can find some volunteer opportunities. I don't know what I would do if I couldn't garden.

Sorry to be posting so much... Just catching up with you.
That pink orchid right there is easy. I was given one by my neighbor from the old house. I was quite scared to have an orchid, afraid I wouldn't know how to care for it. But it has bloomed twice since, and still alive after 3 years. All I do is water it, and feed a little Baby Bio per week in summer.
