    So sorry to hear that you are unwell @ARMANDII and I shall miss you and your posts especially the astronomy ones as it is so nice to learn all about the stars and universe through your posts not to mention seeing photos of your beautiful garden and all the lovely flowers you grow.I see that your cat has found a good home and hope that she settles in well:smile:

    Are you having family/friends in to look after your garden and observatory while you are recovering in hospital?

    I don’t know where you live but if you were near me I would gladly have looked after your garden as you have always been a friendly person to everyone on this forum and will definetley be missed by everyone on here who you have inspired over the years,me included.:smile:

    Take Care and come back soon:smile:

      So sorry to hear this @ARMANDII , I have loved seeing your beautiful garden pictures, it really looks a stunning, peaceful haven, something I hope to create in my own garden over time.

      Wishing you strength and healing xx

          I too will miss the amble around Armandii's garden and share the sentiments already universally expressed. Hope you regain good health very soon Armandii :). Perhaps a post or two to let us know how you are progressing? :)

            Unfortunately, Kandy, I may find that I have to sell my home with so much memories as my health might dictate that I move to sunnier climes. But, that is in the future and I will deal with things day by day.

              This is truly the worst news. I'm so sorry. I thought I'd click on, and find amazing 'dark skies' pics from some fabulous holiday.
              You have been an amazing friend to me since the day I joined and I will miss you and your banter terribly.
              Please come back as soon as you can. This place won't be quite the same without you.
              You'll be in my thoughts and prayers :grphg:

                I can only echo what many others have already said on here Armandii. Although I've only met you a handful of times at Shineyland, it's been a real pleasure every time.

                Thank you for your many humorous, informative and entertaining posts here on GC over the years.

                My sincere best wishes for the future and I look forward to seeing you again in time.

                      Not ashamed to say I've been in tears too @ARMANDII , a strange feeling considering we've never met. I do, however, consider you a friend.
                      All the very best with whatever faces you. Stay strong :imphrt:

                        Shame that you might have to sell your home and beautiful garden @ARMANDII as just looking at your photos of all the hard work you have put into it over the years and you have many happy memories of the time spent working on it alone and with your dear late wife plus no doubt the cats helped out in some small way.:smile:

                        Anyway if you do have to move to warmer climes please spare a thought of all of us still here in cold damp Blighty and you will probably be in a better place after Brexit than we will be and think of all the new plants,animals flowers and trees you have yet to discover if your health permits.:smile:

                        Please try and keep in touch when you are able to as will be sad if you disappear like so many have on here over the years and we never know the outcome to their lives and whether things turned out ok for them and they are still alive and well.:sad:

                        Take Care...:cry3:

                                I am proud to have you as a friend, proud to have the pleasure of working with you on staff, and am eternally grateful to you. I am in bits at seeing your departure, and am literally sat here with tears in my eyes - but, I.... nay WE will look forward to your return, and those will be tears of joy.

                                Get well soon, and as they say where I come from 'Haste ye back'
