So sorry but I'm here to vent. Last year I spent hundreds of pounds on my back garden with the encouragement of my nephew who lives with me. Part of that was 2 Flamingo Willow trees in planters. I am unable to get down the garden but I have been watching them from my lounge. I noticed that one of them was looking poorly so asked my nephew to have a look at it as I was worried about it being to dry. I thought that he would go down the garden and check it out. He then looked at it from the same window as I do and he said that it was dead. I suggested that maybe it was just really dry to which he replied well it has been sunny. It managed to survive the scorching summer last year so I think not. The whole reason that I asked him to have a look was because I can't get to it so can't check if it's dry,or water it if it is. My only recourse is to get my carer to water it tomorrow and hope that will save it. When my son comes home he will ask me what the carer has done today and will then be furious that they have not been spending their time looking after me but watering my garden. To me doing stuff that I can't do but want done is looking after me. The fact of the matter is if either of them (nephew or son) bothered I would not need to get my carers to do such basic stuff so they could spend more time actually looking after me. Sorry guys, had to get this off my chest as it's been making my breathing harder all afternoon. Feeling a bit better now I've got it all out there.
