Hello, I am getting very bad at writing in my journal I like to write every day or so but lately have not been doing so well,will have to try to get back to more entries.
The weather has been fabulous this week very hot for here and wall to wall sunshine. It has cooled down now but still sunny that's the main thing.
Three weeks ago I bent down to pull a little weed out of the garden and my knee clicked and since then I have been suffering terrible pain. Visited the doctor last week was given the usual pain relief and told to come back in 10 days if it was not any better. I got to yesterday (Thursday) and could stand it no longer so went to see him again. This time I was given anti-inflammatory tablets to take along with the pain killers and sent to the hospital for and x-ray. Today things seem to be a bit better not so sore so hope the new pills do something for me. Have not been out and about much due to the pain but last week we did manage our late spring visit Dundee Botanic Gardens.We had a lovely day the weather was sunny and warm and I managed to limp around for a while. The Rhododendrons and Magnolias are past, but the trees in the Arboretum were fantastic all dressed in there Spring green all fresh, they were at their very best. I had my trusty camera with me and here are some of the photo's we took, I say we as Stuart took some of them as I was a bit awkward with the knee.
Some lovely Himalayan Poppies.
This is in the Scottish seaside garden, lovely Thrift.
I loved this tree with the black cones. It is called a Sikkim Spruce
Monkey Puzzle Trees.
and up close and personal.
The long and winding path.
It was so peaceful in the gardens we hardly saw anybody all afternoon plenty of lovely seats to sit and admire the plants and trees we really had a grand day as we always do when we go back to our roots.
Till next time Love,
