It's about choice I suppose. If I eat what I really want to eat I won't be able to do what I want to do. Moderation 

Why has a thread disqppeared? Who decided?

Larkspur is easy and bees love it Edd. Nigella as well

It's incredible how diet plays a big part Pat, and a bit worrying sometimes. Glad you've found the solution - joints are tricky aren't they? I struggled with the hills when I started back out earlier this year - distances weren't an issue - but a month or so into it and the  muscle memory kicked in. Just hope I can keep it going - it's my favourite thing in the world to do

Mine are caused by hillwalking Pat. Many walkers have knee problems. I had to stop several years ago because of it (patella femoral pain) and the only 'cure' is physio to increase the muscle strength round the kneecap. The braces do the supporting - well the little gel doughnut round the kneecap does - and allow me to carry on doing it. Without them, I can get uphill, but I can't get down!

Don't think the weather this year will have helped. They need good drainage and sun jen. Have they never flowered? You may need to give them a bit of food, and make sure you change some of the compost each spring. Also, have you taken a look at them to see if they're a bit pot bound?

Work - almost a relief from the tiling W'song 

LP -   do you think all your activity in Moscow has exacerbated the pain ?  Good that the doc came back though.

Don't say I didn't warn you Pat......

just braces - it's ok 

Left leg

Right leg

 Bonny aren't they?

Not taking any when they're attached to my legs Pat -sorry to disappoint 

You might think I'm Ernie Wise - the one with the short, fat hairy legs 

Can You Suggest a Front Garden Tree or Bush

Holly would be my thought too. Or Mahonia.

Or a great big hedge 

With you on the net curtains....

are we still talking about knee braces Dove? 

The new one has whalebone type supports at the side. Bit like a corset - not that I'd know 

Did you mean a 'thin' thong or  a 'thing' thong Steve.. was wondering if you'd bitten your tongue...

Bit different from here Pat. Just  been to collect knee brace - it's 1 degree out there - dropped to a half at one point.   The birds will need there grub in the morning. 

New brace is ok Dove. It doesn't have the solid hinges my other one has, and no straps to adjust the fit top and bottom, so hope it'll be alright. If it prevents the right knee getting like the left one, that'll be fine. We could compare pix
