Yes - the Sock has nurtured and given birth to some seedlings from the 'Masterpiece' Lupins she bought last year after seeing them in Cleve West's garden which 'medalled'* at Chelsea last year.
OK most of you do this all the time - but the Sock doesn't grow much from seed so it is still an incredible excitement to do so from seeds she has harvested herself and kept in the fridge over the winter.
Will they come true to colour? Will they flower this year? Will some of them survive the journey to Fat Rascal's house in France where they have been promised a place in her new 'red bed'. Will the original lupins from last year ever re-shoot from the one living root? Will the new greenhouse arrive just in time to save the world?
Or will the whole wonderful dream be sabotaged by snails the minute they go out into the garden?
*medalled is ghastly sports speak for achieving a medal as in "Did you medal at Chelsea, dahling?" It is bad but not as bad as "this is a big ask"!
