I had to get out there and deal with some things today, but there's still a certain amount of absolutely everything frozen solid in the garden. I put the apple in its new pot, and Harlequin tried to climb up it. It was cute, but kind of alarming. Pots get colder than ground, but there are still tiny shoots growing everywhere. Snowdrops too! I thought that they had all been outcompeted by angry weeds. The beans I fleeced still look pretty much alive; but then, so does at least one tiny bean shoot that I didn't. Didn't get to the propagater, too bad. Cold weather makes me slow.
Friends around yesterday to play Primordial soup. After someone asked, I also made some Primordial Soup (with a late cometary bombardment), and a brain jelly, because I don't use the brain jellymould often enough, and it wouldn't have been Darwin Day without roast velociraptor. Not quite the full-on Darwin Feast, but we made it to mammals by dint of cheese and biscuits.
A slower week on 365 days of house
Stripped another load of wallpaper.
Exploratory removal of paint on stairs skirting (appears to have some strange black and brown greasy stuff underneath).
Transferred icky water-pot into mini blueberry patch.
Tidied and sorted pots and sacks in the shed.
Positioned and planted apple tree.
Planted up Service Bush.
Disposed of the sad relic of the olive tree and the pepper plants and their pots.
Rearranged shelves in the cold cupboard so I now have a chilling shelf.
