I've got a bad attack of lazyitis so won't be counting flowers but today tulips, alstroemerias, chrysanthemums and lilies are looking lovely.     They may be plastic though to take to my mum in hospital........apparently plastic flowers are enjoyed in care home

As with all potential illnesses, etc., resist the temptation to google.  Ask the doctors for their advice.  The worry is usually  worse than the reality

lots of skin cancers about now and they are mostly treatable.  A friend had some quite deep cancers on her back and upper arm.  She says she's fine now.

Agree with Edd.  You can't just leave this as it is Philippa. you can't sympathise with your neighbours or make excuses for them.  You will regret not having a word with them.  Good luck
