Today I planned a walk this afternoon, no perhaps a car journey to the nearby town. I wanted to tank up on photographic material, and in general to tank up on everything. It has been a dull day, and now to complete the picture, it is raining which lead to the fact that I am now still at home and watching the rain fall. I am now supposed to write about something vivid, but I am not in a vivid mood, more a miserable mood. Of course I could forget the whole thing and read a book, but I am not in the mood. Even my imagination is not very vivid at the moment. However, where there is a will there is a way, so when you do not have or see vivid, then organise vivid.
The only news I have is that after almost two months of development, my avocado experiment, the second one, not only has a root, but a small stalk. Avocados are not very vivid and also not very photogenic, but I applied my creative talent and found a small torchlight. This was the solution to non-vivid. I illuminated my egg cup and took a photo.
Note the root growing at the bottom of the avocado. I will now have to go into action and plant the whole thing. I already have a developing avocado which is now quite tall and has 10 large pointed leaves, with new leaves sprouting at the top. As soon as the weather is warmer I will shift it to the porch and replant it in a bigger pot. I will then transfer this new aspiring avocado bush to the original pot. This is so exciting, it is food for my vivid imagination. I am looking forward to the first harvest.
And that is all I have to say on this subject on a non-vivid dull day where nothing is happening.
Although I still have vivid memories of the apple tart that Mr. Swiss baked yesterday. It was delicious as always, and I will be enjoying the remainder this evening.
