New seeds and old technology

The postman brought me a nice surprise on Saturday, my seeds from the RHS seed share arrived. This is always a lift at this time of year when you find out if you got what you asked for of what substitutes you have got. The next step is to sort out what you need to do with them, unlike seed you buy there are no instructions on the packet, instead you look them up in the Germination guide. This means you end up with piles that need stratication, and piles that need sowing at different times. You also need to look up the varieties and make notes of the size and requirements of the adult plant (assuming they germinate).




They other thing that happened over the weekend was actually due to blogging. One of the things that running my 2 blogs has done is that has has re-kindled my passion for photography. Since we moved I have been so busy with the house etc that I haven't been out taking pictures, as often as I should, and when I have it has been all digital stuff with my Nikon SLR.
Anyway I made a decision yesterday whilst shopping in Cambridge, I bought some 35mmFILM.....remember that?? I have decided to take my lovely Leica M6 out of retirement and prove to myself I can still take real pictures. I know I will end up having to scan the results so I can show them to you and the results aren't instant but what the heck!
