Good morning all   It's glorious out there - I've been out in my pjs watching a hot air balloon floating over the garden and up and over the rise and across the marshes. 

Just for you Clari ... I'm having

They look like tree roots to me too. 

Geraniums, cuttings

I find they're among the simplest of cuttings to root.

This site tells you how 

but you can also root them in a ar of water. 

Things I don't get

Over the years I've found 'gift bags' an absolute godsend - as my Aged Ps became more and more frail they found it difficult, if not impossible, to open wrapped presents themselves without having to have help, which they found humiliating.  

We found that pretty gift bags were the ideal solution - they could take their present out of the bag without help and have a good look at it.  Then they could put it back in the bag and if they'd forgotten who gave it to them, there it was, on the label 'Love from Dove x'  .  

Also, if they were opening presents with other people in the residents' lounge at Christmas, carers could put the presents back in the bags and that way ensure that one resident's presents didn't get muddled up with another's.  One cardigan or jar of hand cream can look much like another.   It made the jobs of the staff at The Lovely Home much easier.  

Thank you

What a lovely post 

It's a pleasure to be able to help fellow gardeners

Absolutely agree! And no ones forcing anyone to buy a lottery ticket to pay for the support for our sportsmen and women, and no one forces anyone to watch either. If you don't approve don't  buy a lottery ticket, but then you've got no reason to moan either.
