Some sunshine, cool, sudden heavy downpour this afternoon.

Are you two good at talking to each other? I think you need to discuss the situation calmly and tell each other how you feel, each taking time to listen to the other. I think she would probably be quite happy with you being a quiet patient at home, much better than you rushing off to foreign dangerous places with Médecins sans Frontières. But don't get impatient or shout, being a patient is probably terribly frustrating for you. Show her you care for her and how she feels, most women are quite happy to find their man isn't as macho as they thought and has feelings. But I don't know how you are together so maybe none of that applies.

Epimediums and some of the hardy geraniums, such as geranium macrorrhizum, are good in dry shade.

I've given up riding too, getting arthritic, but I've kept my old mare and given my younger one, but not that young, 18, to my daughter. I also have a 26yr old rescue horse. I spend longer on my garden now.

Did I see somewhere that you are in Norfolk? OH has a cottage in Norfolk, mine is in France, we go to Norfolk quite often.

A few flower ID's please.

I agree with Lyn about the Cosmos. There are orangy ones that don't look like the usual pink and white ones that have leaves like that.

I like the dogs. I don't want to watch Monty digging up his banana tree yet again.

The Harvest bring and share lunch here went well. Always get a good selection of food at such events.

Then, later this afternoon, OH was singing with the choir in an old Abbey. It was packed, lovely concert. One piece was the Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves from Nabucco, I love it.

After the Strictly results we watched a programme about Jacqueline du Pré, she was such a wonderful musician, her death was so sad, MS.

He wasn't wearing a wig, you could see that when he pulled out a hair, as Lyn said. I hadn't noticed his hair anyway as the lithops were fascinating and he was so inspired by them.

Fairy, I usually use all the chicken I can. Usually make chicken noodle soup with little pieces of chopped fresh vegetables in it. If it's just for the 2 of us we have roast the first day then I make two different dishes for the next 2 days then soup.

Enjoyed Lucy Worsley talking about opera. Carmen and La Bohème are my favourites.
