Trip to Cambridge University Botanical Garden 11th October

He hasn't had one again.  Whatever it was it came on really suddenly and totally incapacitated him.  We were staying at a friend's home in Cambridge - a really awful night.

The medics swore it couldn't have been the jab that made OH so poorly, but he's ever been ill like that before or since - it was such a shame as it was the Opening of his show at Kettle's Yard and he couldn't attend.

Hyacinth Midnight Mystic

I don't know the variety in question, but from what I can find out it seems to be just a colour variant of the Hyacinth orientalis usually grown for spring bedding or pots and as such it should be perfectly hardy in the UK.

Chilli help needed !

It's warmth rather than sunlight that chillies need to ripen, so can you bring the pots indoors to a bright windowsill in the house? 

Mine changed colour quite quickly when I did that

Just Googled Home Depot - it's a large store in the USA so presumably that's where Sarah is.  Conditions there are likely to be different to the ones I'm used to .....

shed base

If you lay it on slabs they'll move unless you bed the slabs on concrete so you might as well lay it on a concrete base.

And as WO says - fewer lairs for lurking slugs

I'm on a bit of a skive as well. Nothing wrong with me, though we did go for the flu jabs this morning so who knows what will happen next.

 

Have you had bad reactions from flu jabs Nut?  OH used to have flu jabs 'cos of his asthma, then one year he was taken very ill a few hours afterwards, vomiting and very high temperature, chattering teeth and shaking throughout most of the night and very peaky for the next couple of days - I nearly called an ambulance! 

He's refused flu jabs ever since. 

I used to have them 'cos of my work, but have never had a reaction.

Why am I so special,to,the forum?

I believe the reason for Verdun's name is that some of his family's blood was left in France - and the Plaza you saw would have been named to commemorate the battle and lives lost in the small French town of Verdun on behalf of us all.
