not my usual blog but thought you may like to see it,my next door neighbour celebrated her 99th birthday a couple of days ago and asked me to take a picture of her flower bouquet she had from her son .she loves Jamie and of course he had to get in on the act.she lives on her own with some help from council care,and i am only a second away.I have her and her Late husband to thank for selling me the land that is now my garden some forty years ago,selling is not quite the right word it was almost a gift when they new at that time i had very little money.she is one hundred per cent with although not very strong.

Congratulations to your neighbour on her 99th. How great it is to reach that age and still be independant enough to live in your own home with support from the authorities and a good neighbour. Marvellous :~)))
