I hope you have a lovely trip, DD. We are off to Norfolk tomorrow.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

Nurses will fit the catheter but if the patient is at home they may need the Doctor's orders. Bear in mind it all needs to be kept very clean, catheters can cause soreness and lead to infections and the bag must be emptied regularly. If he gets confused he mustn't try to pull it out, there is a little air balloon inside to keep it in.

Hugs and good luck, Lyn. I hope you can get more help than you did with your Mum. x

Hello SolentWind. Your garden looks quite a project but looks interesting and will be rewarding. Good luck with it and don't forget to show us photos. I love Great Dixter too.

Hosta, that rockery!  I know it fell way short of what a "proper" rockery should be.  Ok, the garden was a bit of a "joke" but the point of it was FUN. The owner had no plant knowledge or desired any....she simply wanted a magical play area for her child.  I watched the programme with that in mind and enjoyed it.  

Disagree Joyce.  Basic gardening knowledge comes second, sometimes, to the joy factor.  

folks!  enjoy this prog for what it is 

I agree with Verdun this time! The programme is more for fun than serious gardening and if people end up with a garden they are happy with then that's fine. I don't even mind if Monty had one too many, he could do with some fun too I expect.

Thank you for thinking of me, Fairy . I've only been to Killin in summertime, but I remember your snowy photos. Visiting a brother in Scotland isn't very practical in winter! I don't go often anyway, it's so far, and now his son is in the spare room.

Probably a good thing not to hear a cuckoo. Your little birds' babies will be safer than mine. It's just that it makes it feel like spring.

Are you sure Monty wasn't feeling a bit wobbly because of his health? He hasn't been quite the same since his stroke. It is a recorded programme and would have been examined before going out.

Morning all. Sunny here. Hello P Pam.

We used to have swallows but they don't come any more. A wren and a redstart use their nests, but they've been falling off the wall, only one left, someone is relining it.

Has anyone heard the cuckoo? It's been around for about a week.

We are going to the after concert lunch today. I wanted a shower, but no hot water. We had a little power cut. When that happens the water heater turns itself off.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

 Here is mine, in June 2014, it hums with bees all summer. I hope it does well for you, Linda.

Plants for shaded area

Thought this looked familiar, photos and all, I answered about shade plants in Nathalie's bulb thread on the 30th, didn't notice this one.
