.’But do you think Mr. Scrubber will EVER be able to work in the garden again? Its been two and a half weeks now and all he does is walk around slowly and stand and think’. ‘Idubishally!’ pronounced Micilin Dee. ‘He is merely recovering from INFLUENZA’, ‘-‘uenza, -uenza’ from behind him sounded like a sneeze. ‘I assure you he’ll be as right as rain in another week’.

‘Well he’d want to be ,at the rate this place is growing’ growled G. Nome from below beside the steps.

Nome crossly. ‘I thought  Mr scrubber should have called in the cavalry as soon as the cow parsley started to shoot up.

‘There’s still plenty of time and lots of good weather said Cherub, startling G.Nome who didn’t realize he was standing (hovering?) just behind him.’Of course, of course’ agreed G. Nome who had the greatest respect for Cherub and very little for anyone else.

‘And he did slip out yesterday to put in three lovely Primula Florindae in the bottoms ‘ said Statue Scrubber’ ‘And five very nice Skimmias in the bed above Mr Paddy’s slope. ‘’Yes said Cherub smiling-‘he had a bit of luck in Glanbia lately and he has still five nice fuschias to get in and a nice little aquilegia alpina’.’ So you see Cherub Lute ,you are worrying about nothing at all-and anyway its so changeable this week Mr. Scrubber is better waiting for warmer weather!’ ‘’Oh good’ said a relieved Cherub Cymbals cheering up a good bit’B- b -because , you know. I don’t think the S- s- scrub would b- b-ee the s- same, if mr. Scrubber wasn’t…’ and he had to stop. ‘B-b-but it is ONLY the flu…’ ‘INDUBISHALLY!!!
