Hi Everyone.
Since getting over the shock of being told that I had Bowel cancer, The garden has had to take a back seat.
But that was last August and having spent a few weeks in Hospital. Having the Lower part of my bowel and the cancer removed I am now well on the road to recovery.
A new grand son has arrived so I have had to protect the Pond. My lovely grapevine was killed by the wine weevil.
I changed all the soil Bought a new vine( which is growing at a rapid rate)
Purchased a lovely Wisteria. I’m now in the process of cleaning all my Containers and baskets ready for the summer bedding.
I still have to take things easy but should be able to complete all my new project. The major one being the total redesign of the front garden. I will post before during and after Photos so you can all see how things are progressing. well it’s good to be back on grow on you for 2014 even though half the year is nearly gone.

Hello Raymando.
Sorry to hear that you've been through such trauma. Doesn't life throw us a few curved balls in our time? Good to know that you're on the mend now and able to enjoy your garden once more. The arrival of your new grandson must be as good a tonic as any I could think of.

Always remember to keep your brain working Ray,
dont brood about what has happened. I know its easy
to talk but its important.
Thats why gardening is the most wonderful hobby.
Always something to remember, and think about what
needs doing next !
Keep up the good work.
