Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who was visiting the Botanical Gardens in Oxford.  She could see Magdalen College in the distance. We had the third day in a row of welcome sunshine today and flowers and insects greeted it with the same enthusiasm that we did. I am suffering from a littleContinue reading “Vitamin D overdose”
