It was just in a bunch of flowers Nut.

Lily is right, thank you. Looks like a  useful plant for floral displays.

As Nut says, use your nose. Could you make up some quiches for the freezer. Or pancakes with lemon and sugar or sprinkling of coal dust in the case of your Mrs.

It probably will affect your premiums, but not by £500.00 +,  the price of a new greenhouse. But first the problem of the over tall trees will need to be tackled, not sure how but if it was me, I would try my local council first.

When we wanted to cut our long row of 100 year old beech trees down, our council was very helpful, its a start.

If you cut any of the green fluffy stuff off to the bare wood, that is how they stay, they dont shoot out fresh growth.

Maybe, if you want some you can keep managable now would be the time to start again with fresh ones. Then you can keep picking out the tops until they are a nice size, then just trim twice a year.

Would anyone know whar this is, hard, woody stalks pinky white flowers.


eating and..........

And above all else, if they dont eat their veg, dont offer anything else, especially no pudding, or sweets later,  if they dont eat dinner, they are not hungry. If they know there is sonething else forthcoming they will probably just wait for that.

Dont make them eat it all, just make the effort with some of each. Then reward with pud. We have always been strict with ours, me with mine, daughter with hers, they only ever had mixed veg right from weening, first mashed then chunks, they just get on with it now they are 5 and 11. 

I am not sure about the ignoring and they will come round later. My DIL never bothered if hers didnt eat it and at 28 and 29, they still dont and never will, both 6'4" and strong as ox, never get anything wrong with them, so I wonder if it really matters.

My daughter reckons colon cancer will be the biggest killer in the future because of all the junk food kids eat these days. She is a childminder and has done her food and nutrution courses, the one thing that really annoys her when she takes on a new child is when mother says dont worrg about food, she/he is just a grazer, that means just some sweets and crisps while they run around and play!

I did claim for a greenhouse that got damaged in the wind. Your house Ins covers it.

Philippa, I feel so sorry about your garden, if we lived near OH and I would be first there with chain saw and chipper.

Its a horrible feeling when you look out and see so much devastation you dont know which way to turn first.

Please try to make a claim from somewhere, how can a tree have a TPO on it when it has dangerous branches.

When we moved here there was a row of Beech trees, you can tell when they are past their best, so we had them lopped to about 20ft before the devastation occured. They reached the roof and right across the greenhouses.

I really hope you can get it sorted out soon, so sorry.

For crying out loud mike, you have much more than most, you are always on about your new lady friend on here that you dont know yet where its going, how do these post make her feel, totally inadequate I should imagine!

get to the Samaritains or similar, pansy and dove have given you the links, all you do is click on them. Give it rest on here, we dont want to know about your degrees and diploma's in every post.

You are definitely on the wrong site here.
