Sparrowhawk

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.

Geraniums

I do exactly the same as Verdun, what a load of faffing about from that book! Just grab the whole lot, in their pots, chop them back a bit,  put them in a frost free place your plastic greenhouse with the fleece on, take a few cuttings now, to keep on your window sill, there you go.

Leave them until the frost takes them, you will know then because the leaves and stalks will go black and the remaining flowers han

g.

Enjoy them for as long as you possibly can, keep dead heading they will go on into November.
