Lyn - I echo what the others have said - IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT! Elderly parents can be so difficult, bless 'em.  But do make a formal complaint  to the Ambulance Trust about that Paramedic!!!

Verdun - hydration is so important - not enough fluid leads to severe confusion - Pa was in hospital and was given a few weeks to live on his 90th birthday - now he's in The Lovely Home and coming up to 95 which just shows you what proper care can do!  The carers monitor how much fluid he has and if he hasn't had enough his favourite carer comes and sits with him and encourages (flirts) with him until he's had his allotted amount!

Good morning all   I had Radio 4 on all night for the results - must say I'm very relieved too Fg

I was AWOL yesterday after my trip into the city - hairdo, manicure, lovely lunch at Jamie O's and bought a good book and got stuck into it - what a lovely day

And please everyone - remember to leave enough leaves out to dry in the garden so that Hefty's pals can make their hibernaculums! 

Lollipop Bay Tree Size

Reads prices seem reasonable (they're on the site).

These are roughly the same but they have a wider range of sizes  http://www.garden-select.co.uk/acatalog/Rootex.html#a4

Sunshine and blue skies here too

Lollipop Bay Tree Size

No, they're not grafted.  When we moved here we inherited a bay tree which was obviously an ex-lollipop which had been liberated   It was growing upwards and outwards at a rate of knots, rivalling the large ash trees at the end of the garden.  We had to get our builder to dig it out! 

We have a lollipop bay in a large pot on our terrace - I grew it from a cutting and I'm inordinately proud of it

Sometimes mal-treatment before the plants come into our possession can reveal itself a bit later on.  If they'd been allowed to dry out for a while at the GC the effects could be showing now - sounds like they're getting the right treatment now so hopefully they'll make a good recovery

Lots of information re control of the condition given on Buddyboy's link.  I find that thinning the fruit also helps prevent fungal/bacterial problems.

The mild winter and a warm summer with periods of high humidity has certainly provided optimum conditions for these problems.

We need a few good sharp frosts this winter

Yellow poppy - is it Icelandic poppy?

I'd bet on the Welsh too just 'cos it's the sort of plant that just appears - but as Nut says, I can't be certain from a photo.
