Thought of something I hate as Jo posted a pic on a current thread. It's Helleborus foetidus - find it really ugly.

I really don't like that Hellebore above, I find it really ugly. When there was a thread about plants you don't like recently I forgot about that one. I dug mine up.

Morning all. I remember Liquafruita.I like Benelyn but you can't buy it in France. French cough syrups taste disgusting and aren't usually even syrupy or soothing.

I've lost 5lbs in the last 3 weeks, cut down on wine and am eating normally but carefully 5 days and very low calorie but lots of veg and salad on 2 days. Before when I've been on diets I've got hungry and I haven't lost much after the first week. Body compensates because of the diet. But with this one body doesn't seem to realise it's on a diet.

I had wondered, Edd. My first OH was manic depressive, but lovely in between. He died some years ago, not because of that though.

I can't access the BNF, it says it has detected that I'm in France so I can't see it.

Here is my last year's tree as I haven't done this year's yet and probably won't for another week or two. It always looks the same anyway as I use the same decorations.


Green flowers

I prefer my flowers to be other colours, there is enough green already with leaves and grass. I like green, but not on flowers.

I hope she will tell us, Pat.

Edd, Metformin should only be taken under strict supervision from a doctor. It can have side effects. Some people develop a serious condition called lactic acidosis while taking metformin. I was a nurse. Listen to punkdoc.

Of course you can change your name, Gertie. So long as it isn't a name that another forum member already has.

Oh dear! I like most of the plants that people hate. I even like my Aucuba shining out from under the lime tree where nothing else will grow!

How can people not like roses? But there is one type of rose I'm not keen on and those are so-called "blue" roses which are never really blue and look rather dirty. I don't like most grasses, for me grass is a weed and looks like one. Should be in the field.
