Red - the kniphofia is "Elvira", - supposed to be a good, bright red, which is what I want; I have seen yellow ones, but if they're called red-hot pokers I feel they should be red. Bright red.
Good that you had no breathing issues today.
WtnMel - photos are definitely a work in progress! I have lots of slides. They were cheaper than prints, so I used to get slides and have prints made from them only if they were really good.
Definitely worth contacting the Garmin people. My Garmin was refurbished when I had it, quite a lot of years ago; it has only "died" on me once, and I returned it, and got it back all ok for a very reasonable charge.
BIW - good that your hip is functioning well. You were very conscientious about rehabilitating it properly, so you certainly deserve that it should be.
Speaking of swimming in the rain, I once swam in the snow. It was in the Blue Lagoon in Iceland, which is naturally lovely and warm, and has steam rising off it as a permanent feature (maybe not in the summer, but this was February). A strange experience, floating in warm blue water with snowflakes drifting down onto one's face! The worst bit was the scamper between the (heated) changing rooms and the warm water.
Interval session done today, 5 x (5 mins at threshold, 90 seconds jog). Not especially remarkable, but it's done.
