Nasturtium Joy

English garden does not offer much joy in autumn, it is dark, wet and cold. However, one thing that makes me really happy on a daily basis are my nasturtium plants. Even now, in November, they are flowering and producing seeds. I am collecting them as they fall off the plant and letting them dry to make sure that we can grow some nasturtiums next year as well. It is the first time I have grown Nasturtium, but oh, what joy!

Meeting Tortoises

African spurred tortoises walking around in their little pen are definitely not a typical sight in England in middle of October, but in a reptile centre near National trust property Clandon Park it can very well be.

I could spend ages just looking at them. In fact lately I have been thinking about changing my career slightly and just be a tortoise shepherd somewhere in Galapagos, but this desire is slightly hindered by the fact that I speak absolutely no Spanish. Still, tortoises are one of the most amazing creatures on this Earth.
