Hospital Rooftop Blossoms

Narcissus

Spring bulbs are up and blooming in the third-floor  garden at  Southlake Hospital, Newmarket.

 Grape hyacinths and pink tulips

Volunteers care for this garden just outside the gym (aka rehab room).

In trying to synch all my Apple computers/iphone, I've had nothing but trouble since. Back to Apple Tech tomorrow. Scroll bar absent from many sites; working on it.
