Morning all, ( Just )

OH has been to Docs. He needs BOTH knees xrayed and the Doc suspects he might have " a blood condition" tests booked for Oct 30th.

It's rubbish getting old. 

Neither of you are anywhere near getting old, gosh Hosta, my son's almost your age!   I think I will adopt you and come up to give you a smack 

please give G my love and hope he gets sorted out with knees etc,

Good for you Lorna, I hate to see an animal suffer.

These are the corn dollies, also used to make crosses, these are all google images.

the second one is a Maize dolly, I loved doing those. I used to go to the greengrocer for the maize.

I certainly remember the 60's.   I left school at 15,  started work, got married, had a baby and got a mortgage.   Way to much for a young girl to cope with, but I did.  

Me too, not quit in that order though 

Hosta, ...Hope your scan goes well, good weather for the drive up the hopefully, it's not till later isn't it? So may see you on here.

i am off to Cornwall for the day, visiting daughter, she only has three little dears today, two sweet little girls and a baby boy. May visit a garden centre, usually do.

Did anyone see the film Fly Away Home...a real tear jerker, we watched it on you tube again, the other night.

Your  geese just reminded me.

RB, you need to let the seed heads dry right out on the plant, so they are brown and dried, then collect, lay on a piece of paper till really dry, store in an envelope then sow next Spring.

Northern Lass, I think you have put your finger, or thumb on the icons in the posting box says B the other U underlined, just click on them again and it will go away.

Hostafan, now what would you know about bullshitting with confidence? 


Foxglove Seedlings

I have seedlings like that here, they should be ok, they are tuffies!

I see one has been chewed already, slugs will eat them to the ground. It's as well they seed so readily so there is plenty for all!
