I have cut the grass today, my remedy has been 2 dihydrocodeine, 1strong anti inflamatory, and 2 paracetamol with aspirin and codeine, plus a hot bath, i dont feel much better but I am rattling well.

Very hardy, Fishy.

Glad they arrived ok Perki, we are all going to have magnificent gardens next year, between us we can restore the bee population.

Fairygirl, do you keep the marsh marigold in a pot or does it free float?

I had a dead black beetle and 2 dead bees, does that count as wildlife?!!

However, I had the most beautiful really bright green dragonfly flitting around on the stones, please dont tell me they are the most common type

I was just thinking tonight that until my mum had her last set back about 2 months ago and lost her confidence that we had always, always, done shopping together, seems strange now going on my own, but I cant see her ever going out again, she hasnt even been to look at the garden this year.

My 90 year old dad, however, is taken up with the new pond, he loves it, and goes down there to sit on the chair we put for him


Overgrown garden

Definitely mens wee, 

I have seen strawberries planted in washing machine drums.

I grew the durham greens , sowed this time last year, my patch is still full of them, I picked the outside leaves off for Spring greens Fr

oze loads and now they are turning

 into gorgeous cabbages. Well worth their money, you will need a very close insect net and frame over them or caterpillars will have them.

Good luck with your little plot.

Verdun, maybe this has been said before so sorry if i repeat.

When my aunt was like your mum, we found she could talk about the war days and her childhood and remember it all. She would have great fun remembering the antics of their girlhood days.

Maybe your mum is worse and past thst stage but it really helped my aunt.
