Thanks For Asking

This is my favourite place in the world right now. My back yard measures just 14'x14' and has two trees in it, three climbing roses, black bamboo and oh, lots of other stuff too. When the roses are in bloom and the trees are in full leaf I like to just sit under the canopy and drink in the colour and fragrance. It's almost possible to forget that I'm surrounded by bricks and concrete in this enclosed little place and I love it!

As my regular readers may be aware, I've been having health issues for some time now. Well, I've recently been diagnosed diabetic and hypertensive and both these conditions are now being managed so I'm hoping I'll find my energy levels picking up a bit now. I'm very grateful to everyone who has shown concern, offered advice and generally gone out of their way to let me know I'm not on my own. You all rock.

    i truly love the idea of a 14 x 14 garden, enclosed and overflowing. i want to visit next time i cross the pond, and there will be a next time. i hope you are feeling better. if i were you, i'd feel better by making victor do more modeling. he is the best! much love xxx

  2. I'm so sorry to hear you're not on top form just now. I hope that you will be feeling better very soon.
    Big Hug

  3. hi fran, i hope you'll soon be feeling more energetic :o) i developed diabetes in 2000, it's frustrating until you get the meds right, then you can generally 'forget' about it and live your life...
