Taking a bite from the forbidden apple in the secret memory garden was a 'core' memory I couldn't 'leaf' behind

A happy evening at Linfield

On a very warm September evening Gillybean and Barbara arrived at the task first and immediately set to work on pruning and tidying the pretty courtyard garden in the Linfield dementia care home.

When Paula and I arrived we were swiftly joined byBelindaand John who were fresh from their invigorating sea swim.

Shortly after arrival we were all redirected to the two 'secret' gardens beyond a very tall padlocked gate! Armed with a wish list of tasks from the manager we proceeded to weed, prune and tidy.

It was at this point that Gil and I took several bites of the forbidden fruit from the mini apple orchard - no regrets - yet! ha ha!

Fifty minutes later we had chatted and done good and some of us had taken more forbidden bites ( or more) from the luxury biscuits that had been kindly gifted from a member of staff for us to enjoy.

Happy days !

i'm sure you will all join with me in sending Barbara all our good luck vibes for her ultra 100k walk this Saturday ! We cant wait to see the photos and hear the replay of every kilometre.

Go Babs !!

Have a great week one and all :)
