A Sombre Week





Do things always happen in three's ?
Last Saturday saw the Funeral of our old Neighbour Bob Bristow, he had been ill for some time, Yesterday I attended the funeral of my best friends dad Norman Butler, his death at the age of 73 was unexpected to say the least, before I set off for the funeral Marion and I were talking at breakfast and said we wonder who is next, because these things always seem to happen in three's. I hadn't driven an hour up the road when Marion called me to say she had just been told that one of her good friends husband had died on Monday. I think that makes us all safe for a while. on a cheerier note we have this plant growing in the garden, it's now reached 6ft but we have no idea what it is, I'm expecting fellow blogger Andrew to come up with the goods on this one. off to work for now. a good day to you all, enjoy life while you can.

Sad indeed.

No idea on the plant - are you sure that's three pictures of the same plant? Top one looks a bit like a willow herb but without details I can't really tell...

Yes, that is sad.

Top plant, don't know, the others are Fullers Teasle I think, they'll be really pretty when they flower, every art studio I've ever been in has a jar of dried ones in the corner for still life drawing.
