Nut, I think the one we have here is a Suspensa  - it  will be interesting to compare the two

Thank you Lily.


The Lovely Home phoned me about 8pm saying he'd suddenly gone downhill - I phoned my brother then OH and I drove down to Southwold, but it's an hour's drive from here and Pa died about 8.20 - one of the senior carers had been sitting with him holding his hand and talking to him and he just slipped away He'd been fine earlier, enjoyed his soup for supper and the staff had talked with him about stuff in the local paper, then suddenly went pale and .......

Brother and I are both so relieved that he's out of pain - his legs aren't cramping and twitching now and he won't see Ma get any worse. He's been ready to go for such a long time...

Brother and I will see Ma tomorrow morning and try to explain what's happened.  She'd been quite confused earlier and had asked to go to bed early, so she's not aware of events.

HELLO FORKERS!

Thank you BL ((hugs)).

Ma doesn't know yet - staff said she was very confused earlier on and asked to go to bed early -  I'll drive down tomorrow morning and meet up with my brother (he has a house in Southwold so he and his wife will stay there tonight) and he and I will try to explain things to Ma in the morning.  She's usually quite good in the mornings so hopefully she'll take it in ...... whether she'll remember by the evening is another thing

I'm going to do mine next week - they'll start off on the kitchen windowsill then go into the little lean-to greenhouse.

I start them off in pots in the cold frame or mini greenhouse and plant out - when I plant them out into the garden I cut the top and bottom from plastic bottles and use the resulting 'sleeve'  to put over the plant to keep slugs off them - they love them when they're young and succulent - fortunately as they get bigger they grow little bristly hairs on the stems and leaves and that helps to keep the slugs away when they're too big for the plastic bottle 'sleeves'.

Don't panic

Is it possible that a dog or a fox has urinated on the lawn?  That's what it looks like to me.  Canine (particuarly bitch) urine will scorch grass.  There are things you can do to help, but time will deal with it - the thing to do is to stop it happening again, if at all possible.  http://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/problems/lawns/dog-urine-on-lawns/430.html
