Punkdoc, how about showing her this morning's posts on Forkers? Sometimes it's easier to tell someone how you feel in writing, rather than getting into awkward (British!) conversations where you each skirt around the subject. I guess she'll be really touched to have confirmed to her, how much you care and are thinking about her. And she might really love one of the suggestions given, with luck...
Lovely possums, Pat. Looking at your posts is always very educational... don't suppose I'll ever visit Australia but you definitely give me a flavour of what it's like to live (and garden) there.
Yesterday's "sofa day" was very therapeutic. My cough is less, temperature normal and energy levels increasing... plus I watched some DVDs which have been waiting around for such an opportunity. Today I must do just a little in the way of useful jobs but intend to pace myself.
Glad to see you, DD! Hopefully your gardening friend might bring some divisions or cuttings to get you started. Great to hear that Charlie will have a congenial companion for his holidays, too.
Wow, Dacha! What excellent name-dropping! We too admired Rostropovich as well as Jacqueline du Pre. (I was lucky enough to hear her performing when I was a teenager and she was a young student.) My cousin is a cellist so we had a bit of a family interest in the instrument.
I'm with Obelixx on the Lithops man. Real hair, terrible haircut. Too wrapped up in his lovely plants to go to the barber perhaps.
