I think Nutcutlet may have it ... after all the Cornus is deciduous whereas the Prunus is evergreen ... assuming that the photograph was taken recently I'll go with the Prunus.

Yay!  Thanks Nora

Yes, the stick bit to the left of the picture is the top.  I would plant it so that about half of that 'stick' is poking out of the soil. 

Have a giggle

It may be the answer to the Horsetail problem!!!  they can get hold of it from the other end and pull hard!

distracted by Mr Paul Simon 

So glad you can get your ring back on even if it's on the wrong hand so far.  It's such a pretty ring and you've always had such slim elegant hands unlike my shovels (I take after your Grandpa )  I've always been slightly envious of your hands.  So glad the turmeric is working. ((hugs)) xx

Edited to say:  Don't know what happened there

Morning all! Evening Pat! Don't know if I have time to retire, sounds busy!

Off to Diss in a while on a bright chilly day! I'm just taking the bits today, the will be auctioned next Friday I believe, a nice day for a journey anyhow  Thought I read that you had been in Diss recently BusyL, hope your cold is going now 

Hosta, I'm way too lucky in love to ever be lucky in anything else! Life likes me to struggle to keep me grounded but I'm eternally grateful as I have the important stuff!  but don't think I'll be making megaquids any time soon.....if I'm wrong you will all be remembered! 

Lilyp have a lovely lunch, typical that the weather is improving just before you go away! 

Hope your feeling less dizzy today Obelixx 

Chicky, the Paris trip sounds like it will be wonderful! But now I'm worrying about gardening in kilts too! Are longjohns allowed? Have a splendid day Mr and Mrs Steephill 

Morning Dove  great news...the turmeric has worked so much that I'm able to wear my beautiful engagement ring again!!!! Not on the same hand as  the knuckles still swollen so won't fit with wedding ring, but I can wear it on the other hand!!! A while ago it wouldn't fit on my little finger!  so thank you Dove for sending me those and thank you Joyce for the advice 

Brrrrrr? Clari? Your not wearing a kilt too are you? 

DL we have a special kind of cold in the UK, it comes with wet and misery! Apparently its nearly spring! 

PP we do a lot of yelling at the telly in our house! Sometimes we make up the script for them if their way is annoying us! And we always make up names for characters 

Hope everyone has a lovely day and a sunny weekend!

Cam you post a photo of one of them ... start with the camera icon and follow the instructions ... if the photo doesn't appear reducing the size usually works.
