goodbye Granny Ann

not my photograph, lifted from facebook


Rock Rebel Granny, I called her Granny Ann.
nobody in the world was excluded from her world, an amazingly kind woman who will be missed by her family and internet friends.
leads to the discussion of how we could be friends never having met....
the world becomes a small place with the addition of a keyboard and a laptop... or even smaller now you can do everything (it seems) on a pocket phone.

awesome awesome !!

I'm excited!! I won a Pet Portrait from http://www.helenwilsonanimalart.co.uk/ so this is the painting of Abbey she is going to do.. final picture will not have a background or her headcollar on... just the lovely Abbey and she's got such a nice expression on her face in this picture. I spent ages deciding on which photo to use... as you may realise I only have a few.... er... thousand!!

''rescued crocus'' from February 29th 2008

2008 was a leap year like this one. I wrote ''a quick walk round the rainy wind blown garden, the helebores are flowering beautifully, snowdrops, crocus and daffodills, primrose, pulmonaria.....too wet to take the camera outside! I found a crocus with its stem snapped, and it was rolled up tightly so I brought it in and plonked it in a jar, within 20 minutes it had opened up, lovely!''
I do miss my garden, and hope to have another one someday.
