I watched a honeybee on some crocuses on the terrace yesterday morning

Maybe he has health problems and is in pain - that can make normal people very bad tempered. Maybe he's just been disappointed by his life and feels the need to take it out on other people.

I'd feel pity for him. There must be something that isn't right.

I agree - something is wrong.  Maybe he's had awful neighbours in the past

Smile and be pleasant.  It's very difficult to be horrid to someone who's being nice to you.  Perhaps he'll relax a little when he finds out that you're a nice person and determined to be a good neighbour

You may never be best friends, but at least you'll be able to hold your head up and know that you've not done anything unreasonable

Lovely Fishy   I've got a large clump making itself at home in the Wilderness - absolutely covered with flowers at the moment.  I love them

Good morning folks - thanks everyone for your kind thoughts

It's a lovely morning here - the sun is rising over frosty trees and the sky is bright blue.  Temp last night went down to -0.6C and is still there at the moment.

Nut, I think the one we have here is a Suspensa  - it  will be interesting to compare the two

Thank you Lily.

The Lovely Home phoned me about 8pm saying he'd suddenly gone downhill - I phoned my brother then OH and I drove down to Southwold, but it's an hour's drive from here and Pa died about 8.20 - one of the senior carers had been sitting with him holding his hand and talking to him and he just slipped away He'd been fine earlier, enjoyed his soup for supper and the staff had talked with him about stuff in the local paper, then suddenly went pale and .......

Brother and I are both so relieved that he's out of pain - his legs aren't cramping and twitching now and he won't see Ma get any worse. He's been ready to go for such a long time...

Brother and I will see Ma tomorrow morning and try to explain what's happened.  She'd been quite confused earlier and had asked to go to bed early, so she's not aware of events.
