Award Shortlist

Hoping to find time to take some new pics soon, even if only of some of the flowers that are beginning to come out in our garden now. In the meantime, here's one of the Echinops flowers that were growing in our garden last year. They've all come back up again so doesn't look as though we lost any of them to the hard winter.

Should be able to get out and about more soon as Phil's knee seems to be healing well after his knee replacement op. It was only three weeks ago today and, although it's still still stiff and a bit uncomfortable, he can already walk around quite well without his crutches.

Many thanks for your votes and comments on my previous uploads.
