It's been really cold here the last few nights and yesterday afternoon at 5pm the thermometer in the greenhouse was showing -1C. Time to light the paraffin heater! I have to use a paraffin heater as the greenhouse is over 150ft from the house and has no electricity installed. Not that I mind having to use a paraffin heater - infact I love it, I just love the smell of paraffin! It's no hardship having to walk down the garden each morning to turn the heater off, as the smell wafts towards me as I get to about the pond. I don't know if the neighbours appreciate the subtle smell which must permeate into their gardens too, but they've never said anything. I know my friend Fran shares my love of this "unusual" smell, as does my Dad (who was once known to try and make toast with a paraffin blow torch!) but I wonder how many of the rest of you do too? I'm guessing it's probably abit like marmite - love it or hate it!
