Seems more than reasonable, given her behaviour

Hello folks - good visit to Ma,  but she's totally convinced I'm her sister - we looked at photos of her family when she was a child - she'd point to herself and say 'That's me' and then point to her sister,'and that's you ... and that's our mother and father'.  Oh well!  At least we're related.   

I went to the harbour and watched seals while I had my lunch, then did a bit of shopping and came home and started getting ready for our holibobs!!!

Hosta - shame about the hols, but getting your knee right is important - please rest it!!!   Hope your OH gets the humble apology that you both deserve ((hugs)).

Phew!  Glad your house and garden will be ok  

I'm keeping an eye on weather conditions as we'll be travelling from East Anglia to the West Country in a couple of days and as the car is a convertible all the electrics are in the floor rather than the roof - we don't do driving through floods!!!

Oooh dear!  Take care Treehugger - whereabouts are you?

I'm wondering whether one of the Miscanthus varieties would suit your purpose.  I don't grow it but others here do - hopefully they'll comment.

You would have to cut it hard back to ground level in the spring, so you wouldn't have a permanent 'hedge'.

Good morning Clari and Verdun

It looks dry (ish) and bright here too - hopefully the last of the pre-holiday laundry will be dry by this evening. 

Verdun, if you'd just keep an eye on the St Aggie area for us, use your special powers to deflect any strong gusts etc
