The anemones are soaking. Now I've just got to find homes for all of last years pot bulbs.

They might just get a sunny spot in a line in the veg patch.

If theyre bumble bees, they will have finished and the queen gone into hibernation by late October. If they are honey  bees the brood lives over winter, But I think honeybees are less likely.

Lyn,aspirin is not supposed to be used as treatment for AF in place of warfarin.

If he doesn't want to take "rat poison" whuch needs regular blood tests and interacts with a lot of other  medicines, there are newer drugs which NICE has now approved , such as Rivaroxaban

see http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Atrial-fibrillation/Pages/Treatment.aspx

if he has AF it must be treated, but not with aspirin. Get him to talk to his doctor.

Since the next generation took over, i have grave doubts about some of their Modern Art installations. Far too much Emporers new clothes for me.  The installation by the long lakes  2 years ago, looked like a pile of scrap metal, and totally ruined the classic view.

Yes, I think they look like rose hips. The hairs inside form itching powder. You can make rose hip jam combined with apples, or rosehip syrup, sieving out the hairs.

I tend to leave seed heads, and then have a mass tidy up in February or March, to enable new growth to come through easily. If its mildewed, you might as well chop it off.
