I now have one Mother in Law’s Cushion (Echinocactus grusonii) of my own 🙂 I was at the flower shop yesterday to buy flowers for to give to my cousin as I visited her yesterday. I saw these Mother in Law’s Cushion plants in the window. 8 € ! Last week or was it the week before I bought 3 green plants for 5,90. I didn’t take me many seconds to decide to buy it 🙂 After all eight euro is not that much.
Today at Citymarket they had plenty Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis). I saw most people had one or two plants in their shopping trolley. I looked at the price. Only 1.50. I took one. The Rosemary is not a herb I’m used to. If I’m not going to use it for seasoning it still looks so nice on my kitchen counter.
Yesterday I was visiting my cousin living in Borgå. We actually don’t meet very often. Last time was 7 years ago. She arranged a cousin reunion for four of us. We are about the same age. I’m the youngest, 70 and the others 71,73 and 74. The other two I have not seen for a long. long time. It was such a nice day. We also looked through old photos. There was one with us all four taken in early 1950’s. I had no idea I was in the picture as I can’t even recall the event. But they all were 100% sure about it. Looking closer I had to agree they are right. It’s me to the right 🙂
