I'm signing in on the account belonging to my other blog because I can't remember the password for Message in  Milk Bottle. I expect I'll wake up in the night saying it to myself over and over. Meanwhile, using the wrong password will send the links squiffy. For which, apologies.

However, this is a note to say I am in hospital with Acute Leukaemia. I've put a bit more information on Loose and Leafy While here - and probably throughout the four months of treatment - I won't be taking photographs or writing blog posts. But I'm hoping to be back in action by late summer, early autumn.

Best wishes to everyone.

Moorland near Warley Reservoir, West Yorkshire.

Have yet to capture the proper velvety feel of the landscape. The multiplicity of browns at present makes one wants to reach out and stroke it.

Monkey Puzzle Tree with building in background.

For some reason I've not noticed a monkey puzzle of this size  before, only very little ones and very big ones.
