Good morning all G'day Pat
I've just heard from brother - he's in Alice Springs heading for Uluru - apparently it's 'quite hot' ... he's heading for Tassie next week.
Edd - that's so sweet - love Saint-Saens Try him with Britten's Young Person's Guide next? When I was very little I was very keen on Prokofiev's Lieutenant Kijé (I loved the story as well as the music) and Peter & the Wolf of course. Also some of the music for Coppelia - there's some very accessible stuff out there for youngsters. My son says he always feels 'funny inside' when he hears Greig's Peer Gynt Suite - I used to play it a lot when I was pregnant with him
Hosta, hope all goes well today ((hugs))
I usually have no problem in growing Morning Glory - I grow it up tepees of bamboo canes - I've even known it self-seed in my last garden which was a north-facing inner city 'yard'. The trick is not to plant it out too early or the leaves turn white and it's stunted.
