where have I been.


hello everyone and those who still remember me. I have been absent for ages, not that I havnt though about you and your gardens, but I have been so so busy with my rescue dogs, it has taken over my life. I have some sad news my beautiful larrydog has lymphoma of the tonsils, diagnosed in nove. vet said 6 weeks, but he has somehow got a new lease of life and is very very happy, and running and jumping, I declined chemo. not the sort of dog you can do that too. he is on homeopathic remedies, not a cure but support, and he wears crystals, and the spirit doctors are looking after him.

well what a winter we have had, I luckily havnt lost anything but I am sure you wont all have that good news. I will go through all the photos later when I have a bit of time, I have 2 dogs coming over from rom. so I to get them to their homes.

My garden is a wreck, not that beautiful thing that won a prize again last year, no time to prune roses, everything is blown over. yuk but will get it back soon I hope. well, I hope all my old friends are all./ I will post some pics when I have them. see you all soon.

Hello Patricia..

Nice to hear from you. Sounds like you're busy with the rescue dogs ... very many needing help.

You'll have time to straighten out your garden when the weather gets warmer.

That's sad news about your Larrydog, but I hope he has a good amount of quality time left, which you can enjoy together.

thank you seaburngirl, I have got so involved in Romanian rescue very soon I shall take a step back. It is such a terrible place for animals and it does affect your whole life, nothing becomes important only getting out as many dogs as possible. so trying to reduce now. xx

Sorry to hear about Larrydog, he sounds happy and knows he's loved and sometimes thats the best medicine there is.
No need to worry about having a show garden when its all wet and soggy, it won't take long to get it sorted when the weather picks up and it seems you are doing a far more important job at the moment, well done you.......

You are welcome, a lot of peeps do not agree, but if they really knew what actually went on there they would not make such comments.
