Still strange as I 'm probably no more than 30 miles from Ginglygangly - at 5pm I was off to the allotment in glorious sun!

Where is Ginglygangly? I love the name and tried looking on Google maps, but it couldn't find it.   

Am I missing something here? Or have I lost the plot .......again?

Thanks both of you, after the first frost I will cut them back to just above soil level and mulch them.

I think mine must be hardy, because thinking back, when we were last year we, somehow, broke one of them fairly near the base and thought we had killed it. But it has turned out to be the best one this year.

I have got two Autumn flowering chrythamums I planted nearly 2 years ago and they are getting too big. I have been told that I should have cut them back when they had finished flowering. 

When do I do this?  (as they had flowers for most of the winter) and do I just hack them down to the ground or what?

As you can see my fingers are not very green.

Thanks all.

help please as regards my dog

gran, have you got one of those thingys that holds the food/water bowls a bit higher? just thinking, if he has ear ache, he might not want to lower his head to drink

If not. You could try putting his food and water bowls on top of a small up-turned box.

Bonkers weather

Frank......That reminded me so much of my mum. She used to say there were children in the house and we had to chase them out. She was convinced that a policeman came every night to make sure she was alright.

She had an imaginary friend, for about 6 months, called Billy, who went everywhere with her. She even had to lay a place at the table for him at meal times.

We asked her GP if we should 'go along with her' or tell her that they don't exist. GP said there was no point trying to tell her they don't exist. To her they are VERY real.
