Identification is Closer
Some time back I sowed some seeds from the mysterious capsules shown in this blog entry :
A weedy looking “thang” has been hanging around in the pot. I didn’t know if it was from seeds that had blown in there or if it was from the seeds I planted until the other day when I saw this green lantern dangling near the chives. A little bit more research and I should eventually find out this plant’s name. It makes an inconspicuous yellow flower.
Funny thing—while re-reading my previous entry on this subject, I noticed the coincidence that my friend’s neufbox has again been zapped by lightning (the storms we had on Saturday). She was the 10th person to show up in the company’s local office with that problem. It’s so much easier to go to a local office than to try to deal with a helpline. “They” have their set procedures and cannot deal with situations outside of their norm such as not being able to use a mobile in front of a computer because there is no signal in the house. Our granite walls here in Brittany protect us in more ways than one.
