A letter that came before the flood---------------------
I've been meaning to email for the longest time. Actually, within weeks of my last email. Am happy to report that all of my plants are doing really well, in fact they're thriving.
All except one of the seeds you'd sent had sprouted. The Chinaberries probably got to about 10cm, whereas the Parasols just seemed to struggle. The Parasols very briefly had small leaves, but when they lost their leaves the stems never dried out or appeared entirely dead, they always remained green. So I was just waiting to see. But it was particularly concerning when the Chinaberries started to look like the Parasols. The last time I emailed, the Chinaberries were becoming rather ominious sticks. But then inexplicably, everything changed. And now, even the Parasols are doing well.
Have just snapped and attached a couple of images (Chinaberries are now 30cm tall). Know you'd like an image of us with them, but am sending these in the interim."
