Trip to Cambridge University Botanical Garden 11th October

Some wood-turners like to use green wood - it depends on the way they work.   Some bowls made from green wood are more like sculptures - I've seen some amazing ones, with splits and knots forming part of the bowl.

Hospital still don't know where he is - they're going to look in some places where he might be    as he can't walk he's wherever they've put him - think Bro is getting annoyed!

Wow, what a sunset!

Thanks Mrs G.  It's usually me that's chasing across country when he gets taken to hospital, but as I can't drive at the moment Bro has had to abandon agri-business for the moment and do the parent stuff. 

Bro has just phoned - the hospital still don't know where he is - they're doing a check of some places where he might be and will ring Bro back!  Well, as the poor chap can't walk, he's wherever they've put him!!!!!!!!!

Fishy - it will be such a relief for you all to have him home.  The camera thing in a couple of weeks sounds alarming, but we all know now that it sounds worse than it actually is, and we'll keep our fingers crossed that the outcome is positive ((hugs)).

As I've said on CBox, I heard earlier that Pa was taken to hospital to get a problem with his catheter sorted out.  Brother  phoned the hospital and tried to find out whether he was being admitted or was he all sorted and being sent back - all the hospital could say was that there was no person by that name in the hospital at the moment - they could not say whether he had been and gone, or whether he was waiting in an ambulance queue.  Brother is currently driving up the A12  to visit him, wherever he is.

Anyone seen a nearly 95 year old with a RAF moustache on a hospital trolley anywhere?

OH made a chicken pie for supper today (under supervision and with rough puff pastry I'd made a couple of weeks ago and put in the freezer).  It was superb and I'm very stuffed!

While I was picking the runner beans to go with the pie, I saw something unusual amongst the foliage ............... a large round shape ................. yet another branch of the monstrous rampaging squash has reached into the runner beans and yes - we have a squash - at the moment it's about the size of a large coconut (but round).  I don't suppose it'll have time to ripen, but you never know .......... watch this space!

You should've stood in the middle there and shouted Nut!  Dove! Panda! Snoodle!  and then rounded it all off with Topbird!   We'd have all come running!!!  

We had plenty of picnic to spare ....

 

Those are lovely penstemons
