A garden is the best medicine

Sounds good, Frank. Remember the (sadly no more) 'Strictly' forum?......You really had to be on your toes too post there.

Clarification time, Frank. The 'C' word I had in mind was 'CAKE', hence my remark 'prepare to be inundated'.   I quote: "Been getting texts all day from Daughters then a lovely surprise present from Betty's sent by my sister, a lovely cake which I can now eat thank goodness."

 Seems we're not the only ones hereabouts who can bake a cake and several have been known to whip them out on the slightest pretext.

PS. Betty's are exceedingly good cakes.

Took this picture ages ago (may even have posted one similar) I was playing around with a Swarovski crystal butterfly, trying by using a couple of LED lights to enhance those beautiful colours when light passes across its many facets.

PS. You do really need to enlarge this one.

Alan, please forgive me, I hadn't spotted your post when I replied to Frank.

Please accept my best wishes for a speedy recovery....I know (thankfully not from personal experience) the post op period can be very painful.

Good luck.

Frank, so sorry to hear you've been poorly and hope you will soon be fit and well again.

I know how much your garden means to you, so fully understand how much of a medicine/tonic it is for you......of course, I also know that you also have a loving and caring family that will take good care of you.

I started a 'Strictly' thread here the other day and I'm relying on you to add your valuable input.

Take care......hugs, (you said you didn't mind.)  

 

Discoloured skin n outdoor grown tomatoes

HD - Your photo post came through as I was posting my reply. Those in your pic do seem to be affected with blight and I don't think it would be advisable to eat any part of them.

A photo would help with an accurate diagnosis and I wouldn't be keen to eat any part of blighted tomatoes.

Having said that, it will be fine to eat those (un-blighted) ones that have split....this is usually associated with erratic watering.
