A Good Outcome and a Rosy Treat

Between recent hospital visits I was completely spoilt by the friends I was staying with while my son had his brain tumour removed. On Friday morning I was taken to Mottisfont Abbey. I didn't have my camera with me as I hadn't expected a treat like that, but I was able to enjoy it because I knew the operation had been successful and my son was in good hands. The Wessex Neurological Unit at Southampton General Hospital is reputed to be one of the best in the country.

I've written about visits to Mottisfont in previous posts. This time I was completely bowled over by the beauty of the walled garden which contains the national collection of old English roses. If you can imagine the lovely rose arch in the picture with even more of a riot of colour around and below it, you'll get some idea of what it was like last Friday. This year everything is early and really abundant, and it was quite overwhelming.

We're all home now and the boy is doing well.  I'm his carer during his convalescence, so my blogging schedule is still in flux.  See you when I see you.

Jean, I am so happy to hear the surgery was successful! It must be a huge relief to you and your family. I'm sending healing thoughts and prayers your way for a speedy recovery and continued well being for your son. Take care,

Hi Jean, thanks for identifying the flower for me. I really don't have any idea what it was.. Thanks for the visit and comment.

You will be in our prayers, I know how it feels. My brother-in-law just had a cancer surgery last month and it was worrisome. Thanks God the surgery went fine.

Many thanks, Chubskulit. Hope your brother-in-law goes on ok.
