BL - don't think I'd be up to it by tomorrow  but thanks anyway   Let's wait and see what the weather's like in the coming week ...

Hosta, maybe that's it ... you're getting over-tired and your body somehow goes into overdrive ... like a tired and fractious toddler ... not that I'm likening you to one of those ............. I'll get my coat .........

MARYGOLD when you get taken to the 'blank page' go to the top right hand corner and click on the flower icon next to your name. You should then get a drop down menu with My Messages on it :-)

Sweet Rocket

There's one more option - whem I cut mine back in late summer it goes on the compost heap. When I use the compost for mulching little seedlings spring up. If they're in the 'wrong' place I move them ... Usually. This spring, what with 'family stuff' taking up a lot of time, I have a wonderful show of Sweet Rocket in the veg patch :-)

Morning all :). Had a better night just waking for soluble paracetamol and throat spray which really helped. 

Wet and drizzly here this morning so at least I'm not missing a gardening day. BL let me know when youre going to Classic Roses - if I'm germ free and don't have a parental probate meeting with brother I'd love to join you.

Absolutely fine if you have at least three acres - otherwise keep it out of your garden. There's one in the neighbouring garden which every year attempts to smother our large mature ash tree and we have to attack it with considerable vigour.

Hello, I'm back 

Nurse says it's all very red and swollen in there and that it looks very painful - I assured her it is. I have come home with Clarithromycin tablets and Difflam throat spray both on prescription, and soluble paracetamol. I have been told to rest so I'm on the sofa in front of the tennis - every cloud has a silver lining 

Valerie, have you accidentally 'Ignored' yourself?
