An apple a day...

By NDODS    
A very good day to you all ePz.

Thank you so very much for all your caring messages, comments and votes following my upload showing my new place of residence here at the Queen Alexandra Hospital Home in Worthing.

I intended to make the best of the weather today and get down to the beach to capture some images, but like all good plans sadly it never happened. I suffered a rather bad seizure which resulted in me being wiped out for most of the day. I did however manage to capture a couple of images of this little chap enjoying a discarded apple core in the garden this afternoon.

I hope that you all have a great day, for me its a Physiotherapy Session followed by some painting or reading. Maybe if the sun gets out I might have the opportunity to get out with my camera.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin
