These are a few pictures I took for Val in her small almost courtyard garden. Now almost a year since she left hospital after a period of around ten months, convalesce. What she has achieved in twelve months I think remarkable in many ways but here we will deal with her passion for flowers grown and cared for by her which come second only to Alfie and Dolly.


Apologies for showing two twice are worth a second look anyway
Hope you approve Val. lol

Lovely selection of colourful plants Val ... I think the one Stera is asking about is a Hoya ... delicious perfume to it. Val, how are your cats coping in this hot weather? Mine barely ventures out during the day now ...

This garden must give so much pleasure to Val and is a real credit to her.

Thank you all but the credit must go to Brian, who has been a good friend to me these last few years especially when I was ill . Without him you would not see those lovely pictures, for I could not do it ! Thank you Brian ! X

You are so right Brian, Val has done a fantastic job in her garden. Val you too are right, Brian has made life a lot easier for you by sharing his time and skill with a camera to allow you to share your garden with all your Goy friends. You are both a great advert for the friendly group of members here on Goy. Well done both of you.
