Our dear Scrubber has given a fulsome and perfect account of our get-together today, so there's nothing for me to say, except to add to the huge thank-you to Hazel for organising it all once again and to Terri and Alan for offering to take up the mantle next year. 

And thanks to my travelling companions Myrtle, Ron and Dorothy, for the lift and your company, to the friends who gave me plants, to Jim and the Johnstown team for looking after us all so well, and to my kris kindle donor for the giant lilies and gleaming new spade to plant them with!  You know who you are :-) 

I was enjoying the chat so much that I took very few photos; hopefully someone else will post theirs.  And, yes, I did indulge in some (modest) retail therapy.  Thanks everyone for a great day.
