They form roots now , and will flower later. They will soon slow down when the cold weather hits.

If you drill holes down into the stump, and use SBK stump killer, that should help clear it.

No stacey. By the time I get an appointment, It will be better. My GP works on the basis that most people are better before they get an appointment. That way they don't fill the surgery up with ill people.Painkillers, three days rest and recuperation, a good book, and a box of chocs. It worked last time.

No frost here when I woke up. I must ask OH if there was any at silly o' clock when he went.I slept well. Must have been the glass of wine on top of the painkillers. I find if I sit still it doesn't hurt. As soon as I put weight on my right leg I get a shooting pain through my right hip.  I might just have to sit down and eat chocolates.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation.

It has four pads that you put around the painful area, plug in to the mains, and it stimulates nerves and causes muscle contractions, and this seems to reset the pain threshold or calm it down. It seems to work best on nerve or muscle pain.

As  strong painkillers make me dopey, I find this is often the best way to cope if Ibuprofen doesn't work.  It works well on back spasms too. My machine also has a massage and heat programme.

I dont know if tonight I make much sense. I dug up the dahlias today and put them in the greenhouse, Then I planted  New Tree lily bulbs, replanted the aquilegias I dug up and potted earlier in the year, planted tulips and little daffs, and allium purple sensation. Then the sciatica kicked in, I had a long bath, and now I'm lying on the floor with the TENs machine on , and doped up on tablets. (Nurofen Plus and Paracetamol.)

I've got some orchid photos on the other computer.(Kew Orchid Festival last February).They'll have to wait until tomorrow. 

Have a good evening everyone.

Nut, I have PMd you.
