I once had a similar looking ankle - I ended up on crutches for a few weeks - when asked in A&E how I did it I told them

'I tripped over an art student on the sofa, but I didn't spill the Bordeaux'

Yes, you can grow fungi on sawdust/woodchip/barkchips etc.  so it's very likely what's happened.

Oh Hosta!!! 

Re the injury - what have they prescribed, Rest, Ice etc?

And as for the car ...     It's horrid being towed by the AA isn't it???  I've only done it a short way but I'd rather not do it again. 

Hope you've got your feet up now!  ((hugs))   You can watch Autumnwatch with me - I recorded it

Pansy - ouch!!!  It must be the time of year - it was last autumn I fell flat on my face and broke my wrist wasn't it?  Duh!  What are we like - a good job alcohol is such a good anasthetic

Get well soon!

And give the bin a sharp rap with a stout stick every time you go past - they really don't like that

So excited.

That'll make a change for you Hosta


But seriously, you'll enjoy it - a good camera makes so much difference - I also did a day workshop in digital photography, taking my own camera along to learn some of the things it could do if I knew  which buttons to press ...

Honey Fungus: What To Grow?

Posted: 03/11/2015 at 07:22

It depends what you want to plant there Sam.  I wouldn't plant sycamores there again if that's what you're thinking of.  You need to find something you like that is resistant to the honey fungus.

There's a list here showing those most susceptible and those that show good resistance
