Hi Everyone,  Thanks for all you good wishes re Hubby.  The op went OK they have repaired a tear in his retina that has only just become apparent and reattached the section that was adrift.  They also did the cataract in that  eye at the same time.  He now has to lie flat for 24 hours (at least 50mins out of every hour).  Then for the next 7 days he has to stay upright so that means sleeping sitting up with 3 pillows.   Tommorow we have to go back so they can check their handiwork. 

Hope the move went OK Wonky.

Glad the horseriding session was OK DD. 

The weather was wonderful again today, we are so lucky to be enjoying so much sun at the moment.

Evening all, Sorry you are still feeling crook Pat hope you final  scan goes OK.  Been reading back but now I'm on a new page and can't remember what went on. 

I know someone's dog is poorly so hope he heals OK. Hope everyone else is OK.

I was on nanna duty today and had to drive to firstborns at 7.00 am  I have to say it was the most beautiful journey, the moon was still out and everywhere had a pink glow.  The mist was threading through the fields and trees, just sorry I didn't have the time to stop for longer and admire the view.

Off to bed in a minute as have to be up early again to take hubby to hospital for his second op.

Is this unusual

Have had a response from Woolmans re the bicoloured chrysanth.  They have not seen this particular gene mutation before.  They didn't mention wanting to do anything so I'm going to have a go at propogating it myself.

Lovely photos everyone. I replanted the front garden pots the weekend.  This is what I went for, two of the same under the bay window.

Secondborn walked out to the theme tune from Romancing the Stone, everyone loved it and knew exactly what it was from the very first note.

Fidget, thats exactly what Firstborn had for her wedding, both lovely pieces of music and they worked really well.  Secondborn sang Eva Cassidy's Songbird while they signed the register.

Afternoon all,  Beautiful sunny day here, been out and watered the pots, don't like to do it in the evening as the nights get colder. 

Finally, my canna Durban has flowered, thought I wasn't going to see any flowers, feel quite privilleged that both of them flowered in the first year, especially as I've never grown them before. When it's open properly I'll post a piccy.

Been to see mum and she looks more like her old self, so really pleased, and relieved.  Just got to get hubby through Wednesday now.

Have absolutely no idea why that picture made you giggle Hosta

I bet Wonky is shattered Dove especially starting a new job at the same time.

Slept like a log so didn't see the moon.  Typical any other night and I'd be wide awake.
