Part of my recuperation!!!

I have been quite ill the last few weeks...and i have not felt like posting. The doctor says that as part of my therapy I should keep walking. So i got out my season ticket and went down to Ness botanic gardens on the Wirral. This is one of the first things I encountered, a hardy geranium. Now i must get one like this for the garden. I went yesterday so it is producing a lot of late colour.
My wife liked this one so much that last night she told me to print it on glossy paper and she has made it into a birthday card.

Sorry to hear you have not been well, Geoff! Glad the doc ordered you to walk...AND that you chose such a you could share some beauty with us!!

It is a beautiful your wife knows!
Hope you're all better quickly!


RE: Part of my recuperation!!!

Geoff, sorry that you have been ill. How lucky that you have something near with such beauty for you to enjoy while walking.

The geranium is gorgeous.

Wishing you a speedy recovery,


RE: Part of my recuperation!!!

I hope you are feeling better, Geoff!
Lovely and cheerful flower, that Geranium.

RE: Part of my recuperation!!!

Well I enjoyed the stroll around Ness and for weeks before walking has been difficult.Being a keen hill walker I was somewhat surprised when i started getting chest pains when climbing. It reached a climax at the school where I teach where they had to call for paramedics after i had an attack while carrying equipment. Fortunately it was not a heart attack but i am in a sort of limbo where they are investigating whether I have angina. So I am on sick leave with orders to keep walking and gardening, but nothing too strenuous.

RE: Part of my recuperation!!!

I hope you are on the mend. Best of luck.
