Sad plant!

Looks like a Euphorbia to me too. They can take a fair bit of hacking 

I'd leave it till spring though and it'll really get going then. Doing it now and you'll risk it dying of shock

We had metal windows on the house round the corner when we moved in but I never saw any there. I'll have to get some more places for them in the garden  

Watercress...would you....

I'd eat it  

Thoroughly rinsed though

I'm sure one of those was Verd and one was doc....

Definitely not me....

Is this really cruel?

Sorry ...

pansyface - do you have wooden windows ? I've never had any ladybirds hibernating, but every house I've been in has had PVC windows, so I just wondered

Morning all. A calm day here 

Liri - hope the home is going to be right for mum. Almost impossible decision to have to make. I agree with pretty much everything Verd says. I know my Dad hid a lot of things from us because he was frightened of going into a home. He was fiercely independent. He also played down any illness or difficulties he had because he thought if he went into hospital, Mum might have been taken away. It would have destroyed him to be separated from her. It just shouldn't be like that, but what can we do? I don't want my children to face that decision either so I'll be taking myself up a hill and lying down in the heather before I reach that stage.

Anyway, hope fidget's day goes well and the sun shines 

You're going to be busy Verd with another garden to plant up and sort. How much are you charging in doughnuts?

One of my favourites pansyface 

You could head down the route many countries take when meat's in short supply and  eat insects Verdi. Deep fried vine weevil and slug vol au vents....yum yum

I've been very lucky with doctors too Hosta, although I rarely have to visit one.

It's a great big can of worms, and no simple solution, that whole NHS debate...

Very true Hosta. I think the sad part is the amount of waste in the NHS - and lots of other Government organisations. The amount of wasted pills and medicines prescribed every year comes to a ridiculous amount of money. If only people would use some common sense before requesting repeats etc...
