My him indoors can't wait on me, he's caught the lurgy! But mine feels like a normal cold now the fever has gone. I think I'll trickle down to the pharmacie soon to get some more cold cures, he'll be wanting them and I've swallowed most of them.

Sorry to hear you are back in bed KEF.

Has anyone seen 87 year old Marion's thread? She's spent several hours in her garden today, cutting down brambles and stuff. That lady is amazing!

I watched "Escape" too, Cotswolds, gosh it's expensive.

No sun here, just showers. Sounds so warm at your place Marion. You have so much energy, working for a good few hours. I feel like a limp rag with my cold and I'm over 20 years younger than you! You are amazing.

Is it Abergeldy Castle? This is what the Telegraph says. I saw it on the News.

Everyone is talking about Jo leaving, but I'm more bothered about Wintersong, who has been posting on the site for some time. I think one of us misread Wintersong's post and has upset her. Why are people asking about Jo when Wintersong is a longer standing member? But, as Verdun says, people are free to come and go on a forum, some disappear for months, then come back, without any fuss at all.

Strictly is back!

My OH says thanks for the link David. He says he only watches Strictly for Darcy Bussell!

Wisteria or not?

Are you planning to grow it in a pot then? Some clematis are good in pots, but others, like the vigorous Montana, don't like being in pots, not a long enough root run. If you had smaller clematis you could have 2 pots, one on each side. They can take a year or two to get going though. Make sure it's one that likes sun. There are so many clematis varieties. This site tells you all about them.

Looks like insect damage to me too.

Morning all.

Sorry to hear you've been poorly KEF. Was starting to wonder where you were, but I haven't posted since yesterday morning. Cold took a turn for the worse yesterday and now OH has caught it. We were both sniffling and coughing at 4am.

Morning all.

Glad Yvie's OH's final op went well.

Was feeling better from my sinusitis yesterday, but now seems to have turned into a horrid bunged up cold and cough. Woke OH up in the early hours with it.
