Hello Forkers - February 2018

Posted: Yesterday at 10:10

Just arrived back in Adelaide about an hour ago.  She says she is looking forward to opening her wardrobe and having more than 5 tops to choose from   Not sure travelling light is really her thing   But she had the best time, and she’ll never forget it.  Uni and lectures start on Monday   ......Summer holidays are over.

Technology gives us such wonderful ways of staying in touch ......makes all the difference.  Are you tempted to follow in her footsteps?  Cannas grown like that must be a sight to see

Wow, what a spot Hosta   She must be having an amazing time

Beautiful double rainbow Pat   and wonderful view.  

Good luck with the pond liner LG - remember we want before and after pictures.  And yes, I am feeling a bit cheeky, but the thought of missing her 21st got too much for me .

Frosty here too, but am going to get out there once it thaws - I have a jungle that needs taming

Glad you had a special anniversary Dove.

Fingers crossed for Mr Lizzie’s op today 

Nearly the weekend - yay.  This one I plan to spend some time starting the great spring cleanup in the garden - think I might need to wrap up warm

Beautful picture Pat  Chicklet doesn’t come home til July (and only gets back to Australia this weekend, having spent the last 6 weeks travelling round all sorts of exotic places .....apparently Fiji must be added to my list of places to visit .  She’s just finshing up in New Zealand at the moment - she’s had an amazing time).  I couldn’t bear to miss her 21st birthday though, hence the rather impulsive purchase of a ticket for 14 Sleeps time was a mad moment 

Glad Mum was in good spirits Liri - another big birthday 🍰 

Happy for my estate to be taxed when I’m no longer here to need it - hopefully the Chicklets will be able to fend for themselves by then.  I’m certainly not expecting anything from my Dad - would much rather he uses as much as he can whilst he’s here to enjoy it

Will be getting on a plane again myself soon - so will get to see Pat’s yellowing leaves myself 🍁 

Seeds are germinating on the windowsill ......oh the excitement
