Well, pride goes before a fall - literally in my case


I just stepped out of the back door, turned my ankle and went flat on my face, hitting my face on some large flower pots on the terrace. Thank goodness OH was here! I've bashed my right knee which is turning black, the left side of my face, which I fully expect to be multi-coloured by tomorrow, and my left hand and wrist is painful. 

Don't worry about me - I fully expect to make a good recovery - I've been installed on the sofa and handed the tv controls. I am not allowed to make a Marmalade Traybake this afternoon.

Mmmm, marmalade traybake Dove...   Don't know how you managed to lose weight after retirement - I'm jealous!   ....

Used to work for social services Liri - manager's strategy included, 'What, no resources?! - Never mind - here's some cake - now think creatively!'

I've grown verbascums on heavy clay that baked hard in the summer in Suffolk and on free draining loam here - the consistent requirement seems to be sunshine 

Problems With Honeysuckle - Yellow/brown leaves

I agree with Buddyboy - give it some Fish Blood and Bone in February.

 Honeysuckle is tough - I'm sure it'll be fine.
