Watering pots

I would use the Miracle Gro that you use on the Camellias. No need to feed the blueberries now. I fed my roses earlier this month as they will still produce flowers, but that is probably the last time I'll feed them this year.

My blueberries are in plant saucers, I water on top until the saucers are full, then 2 days later. It can get pretty hot here in summer. So I'm not an expert on watering in England. I imagine you would water less often in the wetter west.

Son says now that it was just coincidence and he would have got better then anyway, but that doesn't answer why the water was so warm.

My poor son had chicken pox when he was about 21. It was really bad and his temperature was sky high. Some one told me about a healer, called the Fireman, in a local (French) village. I was desperate  so I called him. He was a small, rather scruffy man, smelling of the red plonk he'd drunk at lunch time. He asked for a bowl of cold water. Then he drew his hands up my son's body, not quite touching him and put his hands in the cold water. He did this several times and asked me to empty the water. The water was warm! He wouldn't take payment, said it was a gift from God. Then he left. That evening my son felt a lot better and his temperature was down to normal in the morning! I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it.

You have to pay for the licence if you have catch up now. But you don't have to pay for a licence if you are over 75, like my OH.

It's the grey beige under the leaf that made me think Elaeagnus (though there are different varieties) as the one my son has is the same.

Back from visiting friend who has a bad back. She's elderly and has trouble walking.

Charity BBQ (orphanage in Sierra Leone) on Saturday, shopping for it tomorrow morning. Hope the weather is OK on Saturday. Have had a decent amount of rain today and now it's a lot cooler, 22°.

Gosh, as bad as that!

I had some unpleasant PMs when I said I go to church, but I also had some nice PMs.
