Send them here Nanny B ... Can never have enough gooseberries 

Morning all  G'day Pat 

Hosta - sounds like the way the balls of my feet used to feel after a night dancing in three and a half inch heels. 

But get it checked. Could be a sort of Plantar fasciitis, but that usually starts with sharp pain in the heel. Can adrenalin probs affect tendons/ligaments maybe? 

It's oh so quiet

ClarI  We don't have any curtains in the house and no carpets downstairs ... There's nothing to hold onto the dust so it skitters around distributing itself on all the flat smooth surfaces reproachfully. The Victorians knew a thing or two ... Fill your house with textures and textiles - they hide the dust

We were at Boscastle the year before the flood there.  We were at Coverack again just over a year ago ........... 

Can anyone identify what's attacking my tree?!

I think it's Ash bark scale insect - Pseudochermes fraxini - it is found on various different trees. 

Not sure what you can do about it tho'

New lawn ruined

Just a thought ... is the lawnmower blade nice and sharp?  

The bottom of the grass stems looks yellow because it's been shaded by the top growth.  It will soon green up now it's getting more light.
