Great! I really want to grow some nasturtium, there seems to be a shortage of bees in my garden

The seeds are ready now, red, queen of the night I think, variagated leaved pale yellow with red spots and a variety of mixed orange and yellows.


Save for Foolio as well.

I didnt know you had those Fishy!, would be great if you could get some seeds. Thank you.

I have just cut another lot of leaves off of my herb sage for drying, its been a bumper year for everything. herbs dried, beans, greens and red peppers in the freezer.

I am so pleased to hear that, will you still move her?

Dehydration causes confusion and strange behaviour as well, the paramedic that collected mum says sometime people are nothing like they were and you think they are going really crazy, amazing what water does.

Billie, I think we almost all have to suffer at some point, thank goodness its usually when we are old and have had the best of our lives. Although that is not always the case and its even more sad when someone dies 'out of time'  

The best thing us olduns can do is remember the things that upset us most when caring for our parents and try not to cause the same to our carers.

I dont know if it works quite like that though, I am not there yet!

I have to say that the design of the human body is fantastic and a miracle, the organs have to wear out at some point and it wouldnt do for everyone to go on for ever, it would be a very overcrowded world.

Suffering brings out great humility in people, you only need to read this thread, and that in itself is good.

I dont like Sparrowhawks, they were here in the garden on Thursday, loads of scuffling about in the bushes, and only today have the small birds come back to the bird food.

It frightened my cat, he is petrified of them, (he is a wimp though) but he has been ill since then and this morning I took him to the vet with a very high temperature, the vet couldnt find anything else wrong with him and said something had frightened him and he was suffering from stress.

I dont know RB but that nice Mr Cameron, in his speach on Weds is going to sort it all out!  yea and the rest. 

Mum was discharged this week and the nurse told me she had arranged for the district nurse to pop in and see that I was coping and that mum was ok, I cant get the night catheter bag on, the fittings just dont seem to be correct, so I was waiting for the nurse so she could show me.

She phoned yesterday to say she had had a letter from the hospital and she would come in next wednesday, then said she couldnt because it was Goose Fair day and the roads are shut!

She told me the bag was easy to fit, I will look forward to seeing her do it!

In the meantime, I need to get up in the night to empty it.

Sorry folks, mix up on my postings there, totally lost the plot now, time for bed said Zeberdee!

Just seen fishys post, I dont know what they like, I mentioned on another thread that I just put anything I fancy in anywhere, it usually grows ok.  My salvia is lovely, just the seeds dont grow from it, tried 2 years running.

I would like the sweet peas if you have any left, they are mums favourites, I grow a row just for cutting. Also the draco wotsits, just googled and they look nice, I am going to get as many perennials in as I can for lower mantainance! (Just in case)

I can recommend those Rudbeckia, easy to grow and fantastic flowers, mine from this year are still going strong. As have Bekkies salvias, I am pleased about that because I have a tall blue one and have never got the seeds to grow!

I still have loads of seeds that I listed before, the foxgloves and delphs have germinate so have proved themselves.

I picked some white cornflowers and mixed tagettes today.
