Lyn - none of this is down to you - ignore the thoughtless comments.  Fingers crossed your Mum improves soon. Difficult times.

My heart goes out to all those with worries about friends and parents - being there for them is so important .... Friendship and Families - what life's about really.

Dove - rather a lot of slugs in our grass, and i am shortsighted without my contacts in ....so will stick with the wet slippers.  Hope arm (and other bruises) showing signs of improvement - new splint sounds good.  Jealous of West Acre trip - it is a lovely atmospheric garden.  I'll be taking Chicklet to York for the day on Sat - going by train, so will wave at you all as we fly by Peterborough

Morning

Its starting to be dark when my alarm goes off ..... that is a bad thing

Just been for an early morning stroll round the garden (partly because its just dawned on me I won't be able to do that for much longer) - all looking good in the morning mist.  But i now have wet slippers

Panda - heathers doing fine (am remembering to water) and others are either potted up for a winter in the GH, or in the ground.  Just off to give my halo another polish .  But then i haven't been gadding off to weddings and the oxo tower.  Hope all is good chez panda ...
