Hello to all my friends here. I've been taking a break, but am about ready to come back now. I hope you are all well, and I'm looking forward to catching up with you again and seeing what you have been up to. Please fill me in if there is anything I should know regarding the site. Nothing special has been going on in my world, just ticking over. My husband and I are looking forward to going back to Spain again next month. My garden is about over by now, just a few salvias, geraniums and marigolds hanging on. The photo is of one of my pots.. I'll try to visit as many of you as I can., starting with those who left messages for me while I was away. Then I'll obviously visit anyone who responds to this post. See you around.

So nice to see you here. Spain sounds like it will make for a wonderful vacation. I have a few flowers that are still in bloom, but soon, they will be gone.

@silvermist Thank you for the welcome. I've only been gone for just over a couple of months, so I didn't really think there would be many changes. Glad you liked my pot.

@jaboUK How would the climate in Spain during November be compared to England?

@silvermist It will be a lot warmer than England, though probably not hot. 65/75 degrees is to be expected.

Thanks @marguicha . The blue flowers are lobelias, I use them a lot in pots and baskets. I use salvias and marigolds a lot in my garden.

I had not even realised that you were absent. That does not mean that you have not been missed, but I just assumed that you had been interacting with others rather than posting discussions.

Does someone look after your house and garden when you're away? Have you got a house and garden of your own in Spain, too? I hope I'm now on your list of members to respond to. :-)

@MALUSE Oh Malu - I'm not picky - I'll respond to anyone, even you! (I hope you realise I am joking). Are you well? Yes my son looks after the house, though my daughter is here too at the moment and will actually be living here. The garden doesn't require any attention at that time of year. We don't own any property in Spain, we stay in a hotel.

I'm just glad you're back. There's no changes to talk about just not the usual crowd, it's been a wee bit quiet these last couple of weeks. So, planning to go back to Spain, eh? I hope it's sunny and warm while you're there. I still get stuck after the 2nd line of a limerick so I've decided not to try anymore, I'd rather read your's .... hint hint

It's good to see that you're back, Janet. I was sort of gone for a while too, in fact I sort of left before you did, but I came back a few weeks ago to the point where I check in almost every day now, not just only to keep my notifications up to date. Of course, once I get more and more of them it may come to me mostly doing that, but we'll see. Lovely plant. I did wonder whether they are still looking that nice or not. Most of mine have quit blooming too although I did plant a bit more seed of wildflowers last month and they are still working there way up out of the ground. I should plant the remainder of my bulbs, but I've been working later than usual and haven't made it outside to do that yet.
