unknown plant 2nd attempt

It looks like lemon balm to me - check the stem - lemon balm has a square stem which is typical of members of the lamium family.

Yes. It would be nice to put faces to names. However some of us oldies to get a bit confused at time. So please, once again for the Prof; The venue etc.

We're meeting in the cafe here at 12 noon on Saturday 11th October. 

It's about 8 mins walk from Cambridge railway station and the route is quite straightforward

Map of the garden

Cafe is No. 34.

Verdun - it's amazing how much trouble a bladder infection can cause - Ma gets very confused and anxious (and sometimes angry) when she has one.  The care staff now recognise the signs and make sure she takes enough liquid on board and gets her pee tested asap - a few days of antibiotics and she's as right as rain again (or as right as she'll ever be).

Your mum has been in hospital and that's not always the best place for the elderly - the staff don't have the time to make sure that the elderly confused are drinking enough liquid, and also don't know the patients well enough to recognise the changes in mood that might indicate a UTI. 

Fingers crossed that things settle down soon ((hugs)).

Hope Mrs Fishy is ok now, and that Lyn's mum's prognosis is good and that her dad continues to cope so well.

As Lyn says - it's still there but the link is not functioning at the moment. 

Daniel tells me the tech team are working on it.

Good morning all   It's a misty autumnal morning here in Norfolk and there's a robin in the garden who thinks it's his - he chattered away angrily at me as I did my morning walkabout

You need patience - cacti are very slow growing.  Look for a Cactus enthusiasts' club in your area - this way you will learn lots of information about your plant.
