Going for a chest Xray with one of my sons at lunchtime.  Still breathless and have persistent backache that is driving me to tears.  I have been awake since 1 am so feeling very weary.

Three of the family have spent all day gardening.  My pelargoniums are all in, lots of pruning done.  Potatoes harvested.  Companion for my chest Xray tomorrow with transport booked.  Hooray!!!  It has been glorious gardening weather today.  Splendid garlic brought from the Isle of Wight and Hibiscus Tbags to lower my BP!!!  I feel like the children have become my parents now!

Hi Flumpy. Wet here too.  I am very breathless this morning so doing nothing strenuous  Have not got my new medication yet so cannot blame anything !  Family coming this afternoon so will get them to put my tender plants under cover as it is definitely colder this morning.  Glad you like my pics.  I think a gentle amble round the garden does me the world of good just looking and snapping.

A chill in the air this morning.  I will get my pelardoniums in when it warms up.

Went up my garden with my camera for a breath of fresh air.  Sun is shining brightly.  The acer is one I grew from a two leaved seedling I weeded at the Botanic Garden.  Its parent had very dark burgundy leaves.

My family are rallying round.  a few can alter their work schedules if I need transport and a companion.  Do not feel so isolated now.  A bit breathless this morning but persevered.  I think it took twenty minutes to get dressed!

.Breathing normally again!  Pouring with rain outside and very windy so I am glad i took the early appointment from the doctor when he rang me last night after the email he had from the doctor at the Care centre.  He offered me a later one so I would not have to get up early   I am totally amazed at the care ad attention i am having and very very grateful.

Made it home from the doctor's who apologised for bringing me out.  I must have been in such a state.  My artial fibrillation was very bad.  Start new medication prescribed by the care centre today but doctor said it could affect my sugar so wants blood tests after i have been on it a week.  All go but I have picked up the branches blown off my trees in the garden by the terrific wind we had last night.  I bet it will take me half an hour to stop my racing heart now!

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.
