However on the bright side, Dorothy and I had a rather unusual and delightful morning. A few weeks ago I received an invitation from the Royal Horticultural Society inviting me to come early to their autumn flower show at Wisley and have breakfast with the staff. All very odd I thought but let's go. When we arrived we were personally met and given a name badge. I noted that there were 30 badges which seemed a very small number. Basically we had the run of the show before anyone paying was allowed in. Then we were guided by a member of staff to the posh restaurant and given breakfast. I still have not worked out why I got an invite. Just a mistake? Or is it because I have been a member for 55 years? Well I am not inquiring and we had a lovely time and bought lots of plants.

I have wound a warp of blue and dyed blue merino, tied it on to the end of the yellow warp and started weaving. I was worried that the dyed blue was too dark but when woven up, it looks fine. A bit subdued but acceptable.
