Clari, I think Dove would have 2 asprin, no cider, gargle with TCP and go to bed with a home made hot lemon & honey drink

Me, I'd have the cider and the asprin and eat maltesers.

Hope you feel better tommorow ..hugs x

 You malign me KEF!!! - what about gargling with some hot cider and honey with a couple of cloves in it - much better than TCP 'cos you can swallow it  

And better than maltesers - suck on some cinder toffee and let it trickle down your throat

Hello folks   I'm back after spending the day with son and Aged Ps.  

Ma doesn't know who I am - she thinks I'm her sister visiting to sort things out because her grandmother has just died - she's had a telegram!   And why haven't I been to see her mother?

 It's  as if I've not got a mother any more  

 

Pa knows who I am 

Things still getting bashed about in the garden - the mystery squash/raspberry conglomerate is totally entangled!

But my Star Child has its first flower  VERDUN!!!  My Star Child has it's first flower!!!

Help please.

Go back to bed Clari - that's just how I felt yesterday - must be an internet virus!  

You best reccomendation

One of the reasons I love it is that it flowers so well that I don't feel guilty cutting some for the house - it looks gorgeous in a jug with some Alchemilla mollis  and a few sprigs of something blue 

HELLO FORKERS!

Cheers Bekkie - just as well we didn't wander around Beth Chatto's garden in the wet - it wouldn't have done me any good and I'd have given it to everyone else - every cloud has a silver lining 

You best reccomendation

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.
