Magic herbs!

I have to admit to being a tad lazy last year and not actually getting round to clearing the greenhouse of all the dead plants etc before the winter set in. A couple of weekends ago I finally got my finger out and had a good old tidy up and there in the midst of all the dead things were three pots with herb plants in. Amazingly despite being sat on the shelving unwatered for about three months they seemed to have some green growth amidst their branches so I moved their pots onto the soil beds, gave them a water and wondered if they would survive...

Fast forward to today and the answer seems to be 'yes', there are now even more green shoots and general 'life' about them, enough to warrant being repotted in fresh compost at the weekend anyway.

Ain't nature grand....

Seeing that you’re a green advocate (and blogger) I wanted to reach out and see if you were interested in an article that I recently have written. It's on the Olympics and the steps they're taking to go green and decrease the environmental impact that it has. While sports is something far from the topic of your blog, I think that you will find it interesting and informative, and not overwhelming on the sports content, besides a few facts on the last Olympics, it is primarily about the Olympics going Green.

I'm looking to spread awareness of the fact that even though the Olympic Games are fantastic and unifying, they are it's quite a carbon-rich event and are not that environmentally sound.
