Dry, warm day in Bristol but rain forecast for tonight.  Autumn colours are appearing so do not want wind to knock the leaves off the beautiful trees!

So do mine Flumpy.  That one is Joyce's.  I have flowers as well as fruit on my Japanese Quince at the moment so it is getting the seasons mixed up as well.

Awww Flumpy .  Not to worry.  i have lots of friends, family and the NHS looking after me!  Seeing the heart failure specialist next Wednesday.  Saving every breath i can by resting a lot.  Precious thing breath!  My spirits are lifted every morning when i look out my window at my acer and into my conservatory at my pelargoniums.  Slept through till 4am this morning when my pounding heart woke me but that is so much better than the 1am which has been the usual lately so should not feel so whacked today.

Amazing amount of colour and nearly October, Joyce.  long live global warmimg or climate change or whatever it is called nowadays!  Eight baby bluetits have just flown into my clematis montana thicket over the garage roof followed by a parent so looks like the nest is in there.

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!

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.
