My adventures in my garden 2017 part 2.

Our hospital is new and stunning is putting it mildly.  Interior design is all pastels and art on the walls!  Just what people not too ill to be in hospital want to keep going!  There are some very clever people building the new parts of Britain.  There were pastel chairs and electric glass pods to ferry you around.  I would like to have seen more indoor plants but no doubt that will come as emphasis is on lack of infection.

Love trycistris.  Just back from hospital where I had a chest Xray.  Have appointment for Oct.4th to see the heart failure team specialist.  The sun was shining the whole time and and I was most impressed with our lovely new hospital and how efficient it was.  No waiting about anywhere.  Feel better for just being out of the house even if it was only to the hospital!  Tomorrow is set to be a lovely warm day so i will treat myself to big bunches of flowers from my garden and decorate the house!

My son is taking me for a chest Xray later today .  My heart beating too fast woke me at 1am and could not get back to sleep so very weary this morning.  I expect the heart medication takes a few days to take effect.  I have poked my head out the back door to breathe in some fresh air but it is cold and drizzly.

Beautiful day so will take my chair outside and watch the birds Here is a collar dove stripping my pyracantha of its berries.  I hope they leave  the holly berries.  The rosehips have nearly all gone.  My new heart pills have just been delivered so have had my first one.  Here's hoping!  Oops looks like pics not being accepted at present!

Just back and been from pillar to post.  Thank goodness my son was with me.   Still not had an Xray but will wait till I feel rested before going for that.   So very tired now after all that travelling around.  Whatever do sick people do who do not have friends or family to help?

I too am a nettle lover, Kate. Nettle tea is delicious. You can buy the dried variety if you do not have your own source.
