Good morning all  

Wet but mild here and quite still - birds are singing.  I've been booking train tickets for OH and moi to go to London and meet up with foodie friends for a Dim Sum lunch next month - tonight we will book hotel so we can stay the night and meet up with a friend for a catch up  She's also a friend of a famous garden designer and sometimes she gets to see the 'secret' gardens of the rich and famous!!!  

Had intended to book earlier so we could take advantage of £5 train tickets, but daren't book until Pa was safely back where he's supposed to be - of course, no £5 tickets left now 

Verdun - pats and gentle strokes for Spike - hope it's not too horrid for him.

..............Just had upset daughter on the phone - their much-loved pusscat is poorly - went to the emergency vet today and spent £150 on scan and painkillers - local vet tomorrow for bloodtests   


Poor pusscat didn't make it - kidney failure 

Sorrow was a white cat with three legs who adopted them by taking up residence in their garden shed - when the snows came they took her in and she's been with them quite a few years now .... they'll really miss her.

What is this ornamental tree please?
