Morning Andy - wow, a photoluminescent pot !!  I admire your restraint on the plant buying front.  You obviously don't have the problem of plants mysteriously appearing in your boot (with the resulting, but nonetheless unexplained, dent in the bank balance).

Morning Daisy - back to work for me today, wish I had another day off !  Aim is to make it through to at least 11am without losing the current feeling of calmness and tranquility .....

LavenderLady - your garden is so pretty - and love the pink wisteria.

Marion - next year will be a treat.  Saw your letter in GW mag - love seeing my friends with their names in print!

And since we are sharing gargoyles - this one was a gift from OH - claimed he saw it, and thought of me .... ah!, what a softie
