Doesn't look very clear on here or show the whole pic.  Perhaps will be better when received.

Yes, I have photos but don't know whether I can attach here.  Will have a go.

No, don't seem to be able to paste here.  Can anyone help?

Thanks, nutcutlet.  Strange, isn't it?

Thanks, Heather.  Drawn a blank so far.

Does anyone know of a plant that can cause linear bruising, i.e. under the skin rather than on the surface, with no itching, blistering, soreness, pain, etc?  My 9 year old granddaughter noticed such bruising on her upper arm last week, which next day continued  down to her lower arm.  Spent a day at hospital having blood tests etc. (normal), then referred to a dermatologist who said it was probably a sting from a hornet or horsefly, which I doubted as they are usually very painful and there is swelling and puncture mark, which she doesn't have, and anyway next day a similar patch appeared on the other arm and she hadn't been outside in the meantime.  Then we discovered a schoolmate had almost identical bruise-like marks on one upper arm, now going further down, so back to hospital.  This time told it was contact dermatitis from contact with a plant, which again I find hard to credit as there is no inflammation or discomfort, just lines and patches of reddish purple bruising.  Does this ring any bells with anyone? 

Talkback: How to choose secateurs

I have bought loads of secateurs and had others given - all pretty useless, though they felt OK in the hand. Your video didn't help me to identify the best to buy, apart from being bypass. Can you not, please, recommend some makes? I have a sick husband and can't get out much to shop around.
