How has this happened?

One of my Sunflowers did not grow as big as the other two, but has surprised me by having three heads.

Any one know why this has happened?

Verdun I'm glad your mum's picking up. If she is anything like me, having her glasses back will make her feel a lot better. I have worn mine all the time since I was 5 Years old, (50 years ago) and without them I am disoriented.

Verdun good that you're getting your mum moved. Make sure you keep a copy of everything. I don't need to tell you how things can get lost. 

Also send a report to the QCQ as pointed out by Dove.

Artjak The poem is by Dorothy Gurney 1858-1932 and is as follows:-

The kiss of the Sun for pardon

The song of the birds for mirth

One is nearer to God's heart in the garden

Than anywhere else on earth

Silicon sealant, the same as they use round baths. Cheap enough in any diy shop.

Verdun, make sure you make notes of everything, including times, dates and who is present, if at all possible.

Verdon,  When mum was alive we had her at home with us and she went into homes for respite, and if we were going away. 

The first one she went into was for a week while we went to Ireland. 

When she went in she was walking round, with a walking frame, chatting to everyone about everything.

When we collected her, we took her straight to the walk in centre. She couldn't talk, because her lips were so swollen, she had 3 pairs of knickers on, under her nightdress, and her day clothes!! She had some of another person medication. And she was dehydrated!!


The next home she stayed in was brilliant and she didn't want to leave. No prizes for guessing what one we used in the future.

What I'm saying is that all homes are not the same. Go round, (without prior notice) a look at a few.  A good home won't mind you just dropping in, at a reasonable time obviously.

Hmm - getting better but still not right. 

I'll stop talking to myself now in case you all think I'm barking mad!! But I might come back & have another play later on.

My sister had a boy in her nursery class called Nicholas Bottom.

At work, the management, in their infinite wisdom, decided that the individual departments would be called "business units" . Until they advertised for Business Unit Managers.....BUMS .
