Could be a very pretty arrangementt Victoria.  

The theatre!  It's the traditional way isn't it?  Too fussy for me but I have seen some delightful displays

My brother ...at last after persistent calls for him to do so...finally visited my mum in hospital.  Apparently for 10 mins.  He told hospital staff we,had not told him about her being in hospital and proceeded to demand he is kept informed.  Staff have been quick this evening to tell me nobody likes or believes him.  He was put  firmly in his  place.  That will be his moment of duty but it doesnt matter......my mum has people who  care.

She was lively, happy,and full of mischief tonight .  We made sure she would have plenty to laugh at.  Can't change the confusion though alas 

No excuse

Good news fidget......pleased for you

So hot esp this afternoon.  Painted my chimney......drove me potty! 

Saw my mum in hospital,this evening. when a friend saw her this afternoon it sounded like my,mum was at death's door......bit of a Job's comforter.  However, my mum was lively, happy and ok.  Yes, she is confused and that won't go away  but it was a fun visit.  

My dog's birthday tomorrow ...11 years old .  I have been told to get him a card....what?   A card?   I understand the goodies but I guess I will have to get a card for some peace

Like your style Steve...chocolate waffle ! 

Busy morn and contemplating something in the  garden.  So hot I think I'll treat myself to cream apple turnover bought earlier ...oh!  And a lager   There are a couple of areas I can improve on for next year.  Got a load of echinaceas, about 30 I think,  in small pots so might grow in bigger groups.  And one or two plants will be  better elsewhere.  don't want to meddle too much cos, by amd large, it's all looked pretty good

Eryngiums are dying down now;   Just normal.  they seem to do this  earlier than a lot of other perennials but it is nearing autumn time .  Got couple of different vsrieties and they are all "dead" looking.  I cut off dying foliage and await new growth in spring. 

(is that avatar a good likeness ?)
