The good .....

... two weeks ago my OH was 80 and we had two lovely sunny "garden party" days for about 50 family members and friends, John's sister and husband came from Spain for two weeks and we all enjoyed this special time.
The pebble owl was a gift and has pride of place in a border.

The bad ... a few days ago my back took a turn for the worse, so more pain and hardly any walking again, but ...

The beautiful ... I hobbled into the garden yesterday, early Autumn blooms are rich and vibrant, the gorgeous cream/lime/pink hydrangea, a birthday present, is doing well and as always flowers worked their magic therapy for me ... I'll soon be hobbling better!
