Are these damsons or sloes please?

Posted: 14/09/2014 at 11:56

They look like wild damsons to me - what we used to call Blackjacks when we were children in rural Suffolk - they'll be great - they're what all the locals used instead of sloes

Alan, given the hallucenogenic qualities of the datura perfume it's probably just as well your establishment didn't have them on the windowsill

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.   ........

Thanks everyone   Mrs T - you have my sympathies

Still a bit dull here Alan - sunshine would be good.

OH is dealing with the tomato plants for me - Late Blight has set in so we're taking the toms off and getting rid of the plants.  When I say we I mean he   I've been sent indoors out of the way .............

Do the bruises look like Heartsease Dove? 

Similar Fg, but without the charm

Pdoc ((hugs))

The Undergardener has removed all the toms from the vines and is now taking up the plants and puttinh them in the brown bin - probably not enough room so bin bags will have to be used. 

We have about two large buckets full of semi ripe and green toms - hopefully most will ripen - then as soon as this splint's off I'll be making chutney.

Please don't let me grow 30+ tomato plants next year

Good morning all

Verdun ((hugs))  - if a patient has a fall it will be because the hospital is at fault - that may affect how it is recorded   however it must be recorded correctly as it will inform her assessment for care both in and out of hospital.  Also it is quite likely that having fallen a patient will become agitated - inexperienced nurses can, in my experience, be quite frughtened if a patient with a diagnosis of dementia.  That is understandable - a friend of mine who is a Community Nurse had her nose broken by a confused 'little old lady'.  However in a hospital the support should be available to keep everyone safe - of course, that will have to be assessed for when staffing numbers are being budgeted for   So as I said, it's important that such things are properly recorded, not just in your mum's notes but on the ward records.
