Hi Mel, My daughter was bought one for her birthday and it was grafted onto the bit where it 'weeps' at the top. could yours be the same and the graft has failed. Have you scraped the bark lower down to see if that is still alive?

The sad thing is, Lottie a vandal could sue if he injured himself on the wire, although I think we can use resonable force if a burglar breaks in.

You must have efficient police there Geoff to spend so much time unless sh'e caused an accident.

Loved the roses, Becks. Wish I had an acer in my garden to have a go at those.

Really awful about the thefts on the allotment. The owners would have been waiting for the pears to ripen. A whole year gone to waste. As if gardeners didn't have enough to put up with this year.

I'm going out now to pick a bunch of dahlias. Still going strong.

Good morning all,

Loved the dog video too.

Jean, slightly worrying about your daughter's house sale. It's a toss-up whether to sell before you find somewhere else. My brother and wife sold their house near Derby then stayed with me for four months until they found a house down here.

They are teachers too, Flo and they came down here to retire but now do supply teaching  to pay for improvements to their house.

Haven't seen Kate yet. We had the highest tides of the year yesterday so hope she's okay. Her parents live on the moors so maybe the tide didn't reach that far.

I quite agree with Gary and Maud. Animals have a short lifespan compared with us and I think it's selfish to keep an pet that has reached the end of his life.

The vet said he probably has anal furunculosis which is a disease that only German Shepherds seem to be prone to. At the moment he is fine on steroids but I will know what's best for him not me.

Good afternoon all,

Just seen a lovely big fox with a rabbit in his mouth. at least he'll leave the chickens alone today I hope.

Going back to the conversation about vets. He said he could give me an internet precription for a drug that was going to cost £500 a month that was for an auto-immune condition that he thinks my dog has. When I asked how you could trust drugs bought on the internet he said if they were too cheap probably suspect. Weren't fake human drugs found in Pharmacies recently?

Is Lottie going to be your new neighbour,Geoff, or just coming for some apples?

Just popped next door to see my son whose working from home today. He's fine now after he had a severe reaction to sesame oil on Sunday. He's on the same steroid tablets, for a few days, as my dog. How come my vet's bill was £152.00 although my dog had anti-biotics as well and my son only had the price of a prescription. The NHS gets a lot of stick but we should be grateful that they are there when we need them

Thanks for the 'Man of the Month', Jean. Does he iron too?

Is the Asda delivery today? Can't wait to see if I've won.
