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.

Any tips for growing rice?

Edd, aquilegias are hardy, but when they are still babies I give them some protection by putting them in a coldframe until spring, or, if you don't have a cold frame, against the wall of the house, but not in full sun.

Dove, glad you had a good day. We walked past Jamie's Italian but OH preferred the menu in the Café Rouge, French food. Thanks for the horsey link, not that far from our cottage.

 Here is my Pooh dahlia, love it, quite tall. I have left it in the ground since 2013 and it has come up in the 2 summers since, bushier each time. It is a well drained bed.

I feel better as my sinuses don't ache nearly so much today. Have started making the sitting room curtains for our cottage in Norfolk. Hope to take them when we go next week, if there is room in the case.

Just having a mug of tea, thanks Clari!

Sorry about your toe, David. I know how it feels, I have a toe like that too, left one.

I am far too curious a person to click on an ignore button

You sound a lovely, caring person, punkdoc.
