Here's her reply to my message (hope it's ok to post it here, Florence)

From Florence:

Hi Joseph,

Thanks for your message ~ Our son was born on 28/12/12, and I'm starting to get used to the lack of sleep etc :)

Due to lack of sleep, I've been using any spare time I get to sleep or look at baby stuff, so I haven't had much time to pay attention to anything garden related ^^ My mini backyard is now full of weeds.... it didn't help that the tendon on one of my arms was injured by IV drip during labour so I am not able to pull weeds, and I just pull my tendon again a couple of days ago ^^ I guess having a growing bub doesn't help with tendon recovery

I've been thinking of you guys, and I did visit Jerry's garden on Saturday morning, but I guess coz there were so many people, I didn't see Lissa or Elaine. It was a really quick visit though since I'm still breast feeding my bub and like to keep my outings short. I would like to start visiting gardens again when he feeds less frequently, which hopefully wouldn't be too far off :)

Please give my regards to everyone who knew me :) (I saw a lot of new names in the garden visit group)

Say hello to Florence from Elaine and Elaine, Joseph.

I was thinking of her yesterday and hoping all was well. So nice to hear all is good :)

Congratulate them on the birth of their son for me please Joseph. Hope we get to meet the little man one day.

Thanks for posting Joseph, I had been wondering how Florence was going with her baby.  Good to hear all is more or less going well despite tendon injury.
