 Hot soak in the bath would be ideal for you 😂😂....



 OH has suggested a massage ... so that when I wake up tomorrow I don't spend the first hour saying 'ooooh .... ahhhhhh .... ooomph ..... '  Romantic soul isn't he?

Yes, I've just heard the news about St Petersburg 


Pdoc - I'm tired and achy in a good way too 


The garden was sadly neglected last spring and we never really caught up, what with Ma dying and a young relative staying with us unexpectedly for quite a while ... consequently this winter I looked at the garden and felt quite depressed, wondering if I'd ever have the energy to do the things that were needed to get it looking ok again ............. then spring came along and gave a helping hand   It's looking considerably improved already

Obelixx - I agree - alchemilla mollis for the acid greeny-yellow.


The paler blue-grey is nepeta


could the darker blue be a dwarf Veronica spicata ?

Clari ........ a similar thing happened to me once ............ I didn't get either job as they said I was over qualified ............ but I'd been doing them both for twelve months on half the money   Apparently they thought I should be more ambitious for my career  ... never mind the fact that I had two elderly parents I was responsible for and had found that the work and I suited each other.  Neither of the two appointees stayed in the jobs long, and I was asked to re-apply .................... huh 


I hope whatever happens it's right for you ((hugs))   


and paint on a wall ............ that's a bit rash isn't it???  Don't overdo things now ......... 


I've been out there most of the morning weeding, watering and mulching ...... I managed to shorten a lovely strong shoot of my Clematis Venosa Violacea so I've turned it into a cutting ...... ages since I've taken a clematis cutting ... I usually layer them ...... internodal into gritty compost and then put in the shade ..... is that right?
