stamps

In the post

I had another promotional card from Bloms Bulbs this morning. I suppose they save money by not sending a catalogue unless you ask for one. I found I had quite a collection of the cards as I can't bear to throw them away. Look at this gorgeous one from two years ago. I love the weirdness of arums, arisaemas and related plants but the only one I've been able to grow is Dracunculus vulgaris, the Stink Lily. Believe me, it smells just as bad as its name suggests.

Also in the post was a parcel of Puffin books from eBay which contained as a sleeper Jam Tomorrow by Monica Redlich. I've been wanting to read this for ages, so goody!
