Going, going……. August 20, 2009

Last day here.  Tomorrow I will be getting up ass-early to haul my sorry carcass out to Heathrow airport (at least it isn’t Gatwick which is even further) to get onto an airplane to go to Dusseldorf.  I’m flying Lufthansa all the way there and United on the way home.  I am so excited that I am practically vibrating!  Which, is not such a good thing when one is trying to KNIT LACE!!!  

Anyway, my bags are packed and triple weighed and waiting in the entryway.

However, I’m a little sad to be going as well.  I’m going to be missing the bulk of my first Autumn here and I have a lot of plants that are looking very nice and are beginning to bloom.

My streptocarpus has one or two blossoms open and smells fantastic.

My dipladenia hasn’t yet stopped blooming.

I moved nearly everything that I don’t want to freeze back into the conservatory so it sort of looks like conservatories in the movies do.

I have finally figured out how to make the passion vine happy.

 

The best litter box screen EVER!

I have lots of happy flowers on the windowsills.

And I finally got the african violets sorted out!
