Glad it helped, good luck, and thanks for letting us know.

Matty said about her dog

"Not too bad a night, we lit the fire, put the heating on and let dog sleep in our big room - carpetted floors. he still hasn't eaten much but is better - thank goodness.

His main problem was cocking his leg as the hurt one is the one he stands on, solved it. walked round tree in opposite direction!"

I'm so glad he is feeling better. He is very similar to my Border Collie, mine is 11, and I follow his progress with interest. But my dog has a malformed hip which dislocated when he was young (which is why he couldn't be a sheepdog like his mum). But, funny thing is - he can only turn left when he comes indoors. Now that Matty's dog has been injured he had to go in the opposite direction. I wonder if my dog's leg is always a bit sore so that's why he goes left?

Hope I haven't bored everyone with this.

Magnums are my downfall too, Tina, especially almond ones. The ice cream is so smooth and creamy in a Magnum.

Planted 3 troughs today with wallflowers and pansies. Have to keep up with the gardening chat! It was a shame throwing away the antirrhinums, they were so bushy, but by the time they re-flower we'll probably have a frost.

I thought Verdun's jokes were quite good.  I can't even think of any.

Morning all.

Crikey, some people must spend a lot more than that on line to allow for the ones that spend less, then there is sleep, and meals.

My new long handled bulb planter arrived this morning. Hope it works, got a blister last week.

When the farrier arrived at 9am (French time) it was only 3°. It poured end of last week. Sunny but only up to 16° at it's hottest yesterday. Cloudy now. Think we better move to Norfolk.

Can anyone identify this plant?

I agree that it is Helianthus "Lemon Queen".

Something which looks nice in November

I'm sorry to read about your son.

You could try a Callicarpa. It has glorious purple berries from October and they last until after the shrub has shed it's leaves. Eventually the birds will eat the berries but then you know that has helped them to start the winter. Here is a link to click on for photos and description.

Otherwise a small tree with wonderful autumn colour is Liquidamber.

Evening Mrs.G. I had a bit of bother getting here, page wouldn't show.

We had a lovely weekend. Granddaughter's christening. 22 adults and 9 small children - 6 were my granchildren - all close family. During Sunday lunch my son No.2 and DIL announced that they are expecting their first baby. Hope all goes well. Granddaughter (21 months) was very excited and looked cute with her blond hair in her white dress. 2 1/2 year old grandson was very taken with her and kept trying to kiss her, only to be rejected!
