Nearly finished upper middle bed after guests left. Planted 15 pansies in it. Just a bit of edging to do and a big dock to dig out.

Morning all.

Lovely thing to do Fidget.

Looks a nice day, so far, but I'm off to church, followed by a church lunch. Flower beds are sodden anyway.

What is your weather like?

Tigger is ticking along, looking old and sort of scruffy, stiff in the back legs, doesn't always eat his brekkies, but he's still here, sometimes a bit incontinent.

More than a few weeds, KEF,  this wet spring just isn't helping.

Sorry RB, mine only go up to page 9.

Back from Saint George's day lunch. Managed to do publicity and give out flyers for Open Gardens. Good meal.

Tipping with rain so no hope of gardening, again. But did manage to do some planting of lettuces and cabbages in veggie garden this morning.

Morning all.
A big thank you DD, but I don't know how you will have time to weed my garden with all you have to do at your place. I'll be in touch.

Going to a St. George's Day lunch today. Good opportunity to publicise Open Gardens.

Natures anti inflammatory medicines

Posted: 22/04/2016 at 22:40

My mother's English chemist recommended tablets for her arthritis (years ago, she's no longer with us) which contained glucosamine and green lipped mussels. He never asked her if she was allergic to shellfish. She was allergic to mussels. She came to stay with me in France and she was quite unwell and had a rash. I took her to my French GP who said she had an allergy and asked to see her medicines.

Recently I asked my French pharmacist for something for arthritis and he recommended the same sort of thing. He didn't ask if I was allergic either (I'm not). Don't pharmacists have any training in doling out medicines?
