Clari ... hope it's a good one
Amberspy ... four days off sounds good (but what would I know, since I retired I've been busier than ever) .
Obelixx - I've suggested to the Sydney gardener that it's not a suitable tree for a container, but s/he disagrees http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/tools-and-techniques/transplanting-a-mature-jacaranda---help-needed/996857.html#latest
Wonky tells me that she's able to pace herself at work, as the Estate Manager now gives her a list of jobs to be done in the next few days and trusts her to get on with them, and has also told her to spend a couple of hours at one type of job then a couple at another so she's not using the same muscles etc all the time e.g. Wonky has been given the job of training the climbing roses in the walled garden properly, rather than as they are at the moment, shooting upwards like a rocket, but as a lot of the time her arms are above her head when she's doing that, she's been told to alternate it with pricking out in the greenhouse, or weeding or mowing on the ride-on
I've just put the sprinkler on the broad beans ............. the pods are growing and need moisture ... can't wait for the rain that may come tomorrow.
