    Pretty! 🙂 🙂 How’s the sciatica today?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Not so bad today – worse when I have walked a lot and definitely worse at night. Never had it last this long before.

        Herbal remedies, anything like that, help? 🙂

        1. Heyjude says:

          I suspect there is a trapped nerve. Not sure anything will help except exercises or maybe a chiropractor.

          Well then go and do it! Don’t wait for me to nag 😆

          I need someone to nag me.

          NAG! NAG! NAG! 🙂

  2. Your photo is stunning, Jude.

      Thanks Ali. The white ones were high up and in a perfect position to see the sunlight through them.

    Stunning photograph, beautiful flower but so sorry to hear about the sciatica. Have you got back to the drs to check nothing else is happening?

    1. Heyjude says:

      I shall go to the drs. Haven’t as yet as there isn’t much they can do, but as you say worth checking there isn’t another problem.

  4. These make such a pretty display in big numbers.

      I have just bought one plant – hope it likes the spot and multiplies!
