Thanks Daisy, I will look out for that one.

As you say, in a small pond its easy to pull something out if it overgrows.

How strange Gran, I have never heard of that before. Surgeon's baffled, that doesnt give any of you much confidence! 

Pebbles to grass... HELP!

If you can afford it, prepare as Verdun says but buy Canada Green grass seed.

I bought this from Argos once, it was cheaper than the GC but shop around, it really is the best, although a bit more pricey than normal. Well worth the extra money.

Good news fishy, I hope he contnues to get better.

My mum is still in hospital, the care she is getting is absolutely marvelous,  She was on a saline drip for 3 days, then had one day without but they found she was releasing more water than she was taking in, indicating that the kidneys are not functioning as they should, so she is back on the drip and closely monitered, 

She is bright in herself apart from not being able to walk on her own, just too much sitting and laying hopefully when she comes home we can sort that out.

Dad is missing her terribly, they have been together for 70 years, so he would. He has stopped taking his low dose aspirin to thin his blood, he heard on the radio that its bad for you ! I told him if he doesnt take it he could have a stroke, but you all know what they are like, I cant do anymore than advise him to take it.

Thank you to everyone for all the concern you have shown and the good wishes.

Dont be to hasty, mid October would do or they will be overgrown to quickly,

mysterious plant in my garden!

I dont know then, but if you didnt put it there, then its an airborne weed. Its up to you but I would pull it up if it was in my garden, its using up nutrients in your soil that your plants need,.

Well, the swoopy dragon almost has his chips today, first off he swooped down on

 me, hitting me in the face then getting tangled in my hair, then he kept dive bombing on the cat until in the end Thomas upped with his paw and beat him to the ground, I rescued him and he flew away, no harm

 done, except we are both scared of him now!
