The Garden Community for Garden Lovers

Since my last blog I have had so many PM`s


that I would like to thank you all so much for your very touching and supportive messages. A lot of time has been spent in the garden generally just pottering and tidying. I did much to my delight find four small fruit on the Chaenomeles `Pink Lady` which was planted early this year.

Sorry not a very good photo.

You can, however, just see the fruit.
Not a good year for us this year our eldest son fell off a ladder at work and broke bones in both ankles and his left arm the upside is they will all mend for which we are truly thankful.
As you can see he`s making light of his injuries, in fact he says he feels like a big kid with a new bike, but he also realizes he is very lucky.

As you can see we have plenty to do to keep our minds occupied and lots of support from friends and family.

Oh dear you are having a bad year! So glad your eldest is OK, or at least with mendable injuries, looks like he's enjoying himself on that scooter!

Your por son must have suffered a lot of pain with those injuries. Hopefully this will be the darkest hour before the dawn!. Are you planning to make quince jelly? I tried putting slices from just one into an apple pie to spice it up - delicious.

Louisa I think he is secretly enjoying the scooter, but just wait until those breaks start itching.
Will have to try that Steragram we have plenty of cooking apples. Not quite the darkest hour as his accident happened the week before our younger son died from Cancer, but concentrating on Lee`s injuries is making us focus our minds elsewhere.

Good to see he is recovering after such a dreadful fall, such a shock to break so many bones which can be so painful.

My heart goes out to you Stroller, you have obviously been having a very tough time all of you, I hope Lee isn't in too much pain, it sounds as though he is going to be out of action for a fair while....

He`s getting there slowly Drc.
Thanks for your message Lincs and I hope that you are on your way to getting the eyes and knees sorted.

Stroller, you are an inspiration to others, who might be facing a difficult time in our lives. I hope Lee makes a full recovery. Best wishes to you all x

I hope he makes a full recovery .Stroller..and I agree about the itching ! been there a few times in my childhood..and I remember the good old knitting needle as a reliever! I don't know if the plastering process is the same now,but it certainly helped :o)
Please keep us posted as to how he progresses..and I wish you all happier days ahead xx
