How long have you got ............... 

To start with,

I have grown Rosa Bonica in several gardens - a very pretty rose, flowering continuously throughout the summer and into late autumn, never seems to get disease.  Not the world's strongest perfume, but practically perfect in every other way.

Thanks Topbird.

Does anyone watch out for the International Space Station passing over?  A regular on another forum gives us the heads up when we should get a good sighting - we've seen it several times - brilliant

Whereabouts are you Sheena?   That looks to me as if they could be suffering from cold and wet conditions.

Good morning all   Hope everyone's ok and no more damage done.  Lily Pilly - thank goodness the tree fell into the road and not onto your house ((hugs))

 I wasn't around last night - felt awful, cold and shivery then hot and sweaty - went to bed with a couple of Anadin - OH woke me later to take some more and took himself into the spare room - I woke this morning feeling fine  

Lily - get GP to check your thyroid levels.

....Now my niece........Glad I've got sun 

Why are nice girls so soft-hearted?  Took my daughter a while to stop adopting lame dogs - mind you, it probably runs in the family  but we do grow out of it eventually   Any chance of there being a nice young man at her new job? 

I'm glad you've got sun too Verdun   - we've got it too, but I'm not sure for how long .... 

Vegggies in Pots

I've tried courgettes in huge pots in the past - never had a really good yield.  I've got some in a raised bed now - doing much better.

OL, I don't know what they are - a friend gave me the cucumber plants calling them Patio cucumbers.
