Morning Peeps

Glad to see you back Lizzie - and good to hear you had such a lovely holiday.  Lovely pressies for OL - aren't we a funny lot - getting excited over gifts of tin baths.  I have one with 3 hostas in it - i love it.  Have a good/busy week with OH.

Pdoc - glad the garden worked a little bit of its magic - will be thinking of you this week. Difficult times.

Expecting a manic week of work this week (and then a quiet spell, relatively speaking) - so may only have time to lurk.  But watching your antics will keep me sane.

I've found it self seeds well ( but unwanted ones are easy to get rid of) - but you need it to self seed to get into all those nooks and crevices that you could never intentionally plant it in.  Now that it has got going it is a star in my stone walls

Something about watching the light fade that is magical.  Unfortunately I missed it this evening (a girls gotta hoover sometime).  Got the wine now though, might take it outside and listen to the owls.....Archie has inspired me
