Yesterday I decided to get in the Summer mood and make my cottage pretty. I went to Ikea - the 'scenic' route because I can never find the place in one attempt and always miss the junction - to get some pots and a few plants. Following meatballs for lunch (obviously) I chose some pretty plants with the help of my good friend Mary. When I got home I discovered that the green one, which I chose all by myself due to its pretty colour and succulent leaves, is in fact...plastic. My botanist father would be ashamed of me.
