was advised by Anna to go to Doc this morning and our very kind Dr. assured me all was well. No need for a stitch which apparently is quite sore in finger tips-our tips have lots of nerves, Instead Dr, used super glue of some sort and gave me tetanus and the flu injection so Im now stronger than ever and very grateful and will be even more careful with the rocks from now on.

I went out and took photographs to show new log edging. You can just see the little pegs I hammered in to hold the logs in place.  While looking around I noticed a fairly young oak but in the wrong place. Its twenty or thirty years old and not especially lovely. Scrubber is in two minds. If I do take it out the area will look better and airier and the other trees will look better as a result. But one hates to take out a tree thats not diseased. The trunk is about 10 inches diameter. I know Im hoping people will tell me to do it........

Lots of rain today so wouldnt have been able to get out anyway. I expect to get back next wednesday.Hope you like the third photo. I looked out and saw the sun shining through the other morning and ran out and caught the light.

We should all get the 'flu vaccine this month. I get it every year. That 3rd photo is super. This is the time to observe the webs

Such careful work, M. Scruberrr.  The path is looking pristine And better than before.  

Are you listening to the friendly advice of the denizens of the Scrub these days?  They will sort out that out for you.  

So sorry about the finger, but glad you had it checked out.  

Oh, what are lace cap spiders which you mention on the caption to the third photo?

Best to get a tetanus when you had a deep cut. The edging look super. Hope you will be back in the garden before too long.
