Mostly it is loss which teaches us about the worth of things.


CHEIRANTHUS Sugar Rush (Cheiranthus cheiri)

…and right now I’m enjoying the flowers of the Cheiranthus Sugar Rush (Cheiranthus cheiri) blooming on my apartment balcony.   We’re only 10 days into the current 6 week evening curfew and strict lockdown in Melbourne and I’m missing all my herbs and veggies I used to grow on my balcony.   I re-homed or planted out most of them when I temporarily moved house last month and with the lock-down and all the stores closed, I am missing their fragrant cheerful presence in my life.
