Clari, I think Dove would have 2 asprin, no cider, gargle with TCP and go to bed with a home made hot lemon & honey drink

Me, I'd have the cider and the asprin and eat maltesers.

Hope you feel better tommorow ..hugs x

 You malign me KEF!!! - what about gargling with some hot cider and honey with a couple of cloves in it - much better than TCP 'cos you can swallow it  

And better than maltesers - suck on some cinder toffee and let it trickle down your throat

Hello folks   I'm back after spending the day with son and Aged Ps.  

Ma doesn't know who I am - she thinks I'm her sister visiting to sort things out because her grandmother has just died - she's had a telegram!   And why haven't I been to see her mother?

 It's  as if I've not got a mother any more  


Pa knows who I am 

Things still getting bashed about in the garden - the mystery squash/raspberry conglomerate is totally entangled!

But my Star Child has its first flower  VERDUN!!!  My Star Child has it's first flower!!!

Help please.

Go back to bed Clari - that's just how I felt yesterday - must be an internet virus!

One of the reasons I love it is that it flowers so well that I don't feel guilty cutting some for the house - it looks gorgeous in a jug with some Alchemilla mollis  and a few sprigs of something blue

Cheers Bekkie - just as well we didn't wander around Beth Chatto's garden in the wet - it wouldn't have done me any good and I'd have given it to everyone else - every cloud has a silver lining 

You best reccomendation

How long have you got ............... 

To start with,

I have grown Rosa Bonica in several gardens - a very pretty rose, flowering continuously throughout the summer and into late autumn, never seems to get disease.  Not the world's strongest perfume, but practically perfect in every other way.

Thanks Topbird.

Does anyone watch out for the International Space Station passing over?  A regular on another forum gives us the heads up when we should get a good sighting - we've seen it several times - brilliant
