We went to the garden center today to get soil (finally) and on the way got stuck in traffic for the London marathon. Lots of people dressed up as things -- fairys, knights, flags, rhinos, strange sponge-like creatures. I think my favorite was the 'worm' which had about 10 or more people all connected by green material, with the first guy having a worm head LOL. Lots of supermans, batmans, robins, etc.
We were stuck in that traffic a LONG time. Some of the runners were in poor shape -- we were around mile 18, and they were feeling it. Some were crying as they ran, some were limping. A few had haunted eyes, and you could see they weren't going to make it. The men and women who were over 70 and up -- they were inspiring. I could never do it.

I got more plants at the garden, and likely you'll be hearing a lot about my garden. That is, after planting all that stuff, I'm able to get out of bed tomorrow. I'm stiff already. Lifting 75kg bags of soil by myself. well. I feel in love with a twisty tree -- at least, thats what we call it. I've already forgotten it's real name. And we got a bay leaf tree -- 5 rose bushes (on sale), a beatiful orange lily, and something else, that is escaping my memory. Oh, a honeysuckle :D

I know I've been really quite lately. I'm actually debating taking a leave from LJ for a while. Lots of emotional stuff going on, and I'm crying at the drop of a hat. We'll see.
More later. ta.
