2020 is so challenging that Eliza is looking for advice from unconventional sources.
This week, she rewatched the adventures of Olive & Mabel the labradors. In episode 3, the dogs emerge from a fetid pond and "let the unpleasantness sink in". It seems like a good mantra for life.

Eliza prepares to give herself a history lesson before the November election in America.
And Geraldine looks for plants which thrive in dappled light.
