The shumak (spelling aprox - not in my dictionary) is not a favourite of mine but today (the scarlet, centre) it's earning its keep. The enormous tree on the right has the unique ability to shed all its leaves in my garden. I had plans to collect them - put them in plastic bags and use as leaf mould but a trip over a rug (now banished) has given me second thoughts.
Grand mother but still a girl at heart. Married to MTL(my true love)after a separation of 30 years. Had three careers: trained paediatric nurse, National photographic model and business woman. Now settled in SW and enjoying our five children and ten grandchildren and making the most of what time we have left.
In January 2013 I lost MTL.
