Enjoy your visits with grandchildren LilyP and Liri - sometimes its the impromptu visits that are the best 

Busy week at work this week.  But we have Anne Swithinbank coming to talk at garden club this week and I am determined not to miss it .....even if I have to go with my laptop in tow 

Hope the swallow is now soaring high again 🌀πŸŒ₯β›…οΈπŸŒ€

Just back from a day in the New Forest with my sisters.  We got Dad down the stairs and out for a bit of  fresh air. Went to Beaulieu and raised a glass of bubbly to Mum, who would have been 80 this Tuesday.  Think she would have approved of our party 🎈 πŸ₯‚ πŸŽ‚

Dad also got back up the stairs afterwards much progress is being made

Never been Liri, but just googled and it looks beautiful 

Had a long lie in  .....its been a busy week.  Grey but not raining so I’m heading out to the garden - I have foxgloves to plant, tomatoes to clear and tenders to get under cover.  Can’t believe its that time of year already 

Great to hear your news DD - what are your plans for the garden?

Down to visit Dad this evening - my sister saw him at the weekend and apparently more progress is being made   

Glad your daughter is out of hospital Joyce - hope she gets better quickly now.

Only 38 more sleeps until our big trip

We got married on 15th October, on a gloriously sunny day.  Pretty much every one of our 23 anniversaries since then have seen warm sunshine β˜€οΈ I am hopeful for a good month.  Having said that, today is not a good start β˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈ

Off out to Screwfix Live in a minute (Mr C really knows how to treat a girl ) ......hope everyone else has a similarly fulfilling day

Thanks guys 

Well done Argyrantheum   Beautiful display, very worthy of an award πŸ₯‡πŸ†

Papi Jo - the white anemone is Honorine Joubert, and the pink one is Prinz Heinrich.  Wouldn’t be without them at this time of year
