Empty windowsills

empty windowsillMay is the season of empty windowsills. Every surface in the house that’s within reach of daylight has been crammed full of plant pots and seed trays for weeks. Now these hundreds of young plants and seedlings have been given away in just one morning, placed into grateful hands at Growing Newsome’s annual Plant Swap. A gift shared between growers, happy both to give and to receive. And I am left only with empty windowsills, a smile, my favourite tomatoes, two small cosmos seedlings, the plants that I’ve kept for friends, and an urge to sow lots more seeds.

Sometimes empty isn’t really empty at all.
