It's not groundbreaking news that the espresso martini is everyone's go-to cocktail.
According to CGA by NielsenIQ's cocktail tracker, it's one of the top 10 cocktails in the U.S. and has been growing for years now. The hashtag #espressomartini has 556 million views on TikTok.

This is that time of year when we take cuttings of our beloved plants. These are the indoor plants that grew too big over the summer months, the perennials we would like to increase in numbers rather than dividing, or from bringing in an entire annual plant from outside.
Valentine’s Day has just passed, and if you were lucky, someone you love gave you roses to celebrate the occasion. All the romance and fragrance in the air bring to mind one of history’s great love stories-that of Napoleon and Josephine. Naturally the whole tale is full of roses.

I’m sure you can imagine that I go through secateurs like anything. Not because I loose them but because I use them all day, every day in all sorts of weather and they just stop working eventually and you can’t get them repaired. If I’m lucky they’ll last 6-9 months.
The garden is a bit like a class of school children. When the teacher is around they all behave perfectly, but if the teacher is away and a supply teacher comes in, then they mess about…..I know because I was a kid once.
