Really getting down to it,Shirley...well done...like your hat too,!

Good grief Anget, that was a quick response! I detest wearing a sunhat but have to since having a couple of skin cancers removed. If only we had known about the effects of too much sun on the skin back in our younger days, eh?

Julia, another early riser on-line! I have been awake half the night as Michael has the chesty cough and cold I had last week. It's our 43rd wedding anniversary today, so "In sickness and in health" comes to mind! We shall be staying at home today . . . :o(

Ah,that's a shame,Shirley...please pass on my congratulations and ,of course,to you as well.
I can see that beautiful new path will come alive when the Gazanias flower.

congrats on your anniversary and the gazanias will be beautiful once in flower.

Thank you Julia, I have just eaten my lunch alone as M has no appetite right now. I also planted some Zinnias and am hoping they don't become slug and/or snail fodder!

Sbg, many thanks. Our wedding day was much like today, warm and sunny . . . :o)

That is a lovely picture.
Happy anniversary.

Thank you both . . . Michael has gone to bed early as he's still feeling poorly . . . :o(

Lovely pic, Shirley! Happy belated wedding anniversary! I do love your hat too! Very stylish looking.
Hope Michael is doing ok? Bless him.

Thank you Kate, not a hope of wearing a sun hat today as the rain is still falling. Good for the garden though. I rang for a triage phone call with our GP earlier today and Michael is now on a course of Amoxycillin for a suspected chest infection. A chest X-ray has been requested so that should be next week. Hopefully he will be feeling lots better by then.

Happy anniversary Shirley, and love the picture ... I’m glad to see you have some comfortable chairs at hand for when you’ve done the planting!

Thank you Sheila, tomorrow is our son's 12th wedding anniversary, doesn't seem possible! I don't often sit down in those chairs - really should do though . . . :o)

Good to here he is now on some antibiotics, Shirley! Hopefully the CXR will be appointed earlier in the coming week! 🤞

Thanks Kate, all done by triage over the phone. Strange times we live in right now ...
