Good evening all.
I tried to post this morning, while on the train between Leeds and Newcastle, but I see it's not there... signal was a bit iffy. Went to visit Mum, plus sister, and older niece as a bonus - she lives in Beijing and I hadn't seen her for 10 years or so. It was great to catch up, though a bit of a worry that she's had to have a cataract operation at the age of 39. Mum was very yonderly, but pleased to see me, even though she didn't really know who I was...
Not a lot of watering done here either; retentive soil, shady garden, high rainfall. Only stuff in pots, new plantings and veg get extra water. I think I'd trade the inconvenience for a garden with a bit more sun though, to be honest.
