Chelsea Flower Show




Well I've sown the seeds that I got. Not convinced the auriculas don't need freezing to break dormancy, but I've given it a go. Who knows it may be next Spring before they come up.

The house is a complete shambles, books from the dining room bookcase are stacked everywhere. It will be tomorrow before I can start sorting the place out. I had hoped to paint the room before putting everything back, but the body it not willing. I walked a lot in London, and my foot problem, caused by chemo damaging nerve endings has flared again. I've been awake the last two night with really bad pain in my right foot and golf ball like swelling on on it. So I'll come back to it later in the year. Getting better at accepting my limitations, just keep chipping away at things and you get there eventually.

These are two Chelsea pictures, one is of the fantastic Kirstenboch stand from RSA.
They were trying to show how fire plays a unique part in helping germination of these amazing plants. The other is of the Cancer Research Garden, by far the best garden IMHO, Dan Pearson in the Observer also like it. The circles represent the links and switchbacks that occur in researching the disease.

I have never been to Chelsea - the flower thing I mean - and am very envious. Take it easy and rest your foot.

Thanks all. I'm on the mend, though still feeling tired. Tomorrow night is my first readimng from Heart Notes, looking forward to that!

Meanwhile dealing with stroppy teenagers and my MIL has had a fall is being X rayed as I write. She may need to come done here to recover. Son leaves for USA next -one in, one out. Hey ho!

Don't try to do too much, toots. And rest that foot.
