Td immunisations...

Posted: 15/09/2014 at 09:22

Please, please , please have tetanus boosters. Sadly I have looked after patients with Tetanus, and the outcome can be very bleak. I have seen a case due to a garden incident.

Like many doctors, I had a habit of "forgetting" my boosters, but having spent some time in recent years in the bush in various 3rd. world countries, I became more sensible.

Seems like everyone has been busy.

I have tried to relax and do nothing, and I think I do feel less stressed. Up early tomorrow for drive South to Mums, and more days of who knows what?

Hope all the workers have a good week, that the rest of you get out in our gardens and that the sick get better.

Rose bush help!

Sadly Amilee, your Rose is dead, it is no more, it has fallen off its perch; it is not resting and is not pining for the fjiords.

Day off for good behaviour. Little sister gone to look after Mum. Sadly second operation does not appear to have worked, so Mum is now nearly blind.

I am going to try and relax in the garden, hope you all manage to do the same.

You could over winter it, but it would need to be kept indoors, or in a heated greenhouse.

Morning all, very foggy here.

Sadly my Mum needs to go back into hospital, as the last one has stopped working, trabeculectomy for those of you who up with the lingo.

I am driving down again this morning, so am not sure when I shall get on here.

Speedy recovery to you Dove, and enjoy your gardens everyone else.

If you have plenty of other shoots, I would not worry.

Make sure the damaged stem is cut neatly with a slanted cut, which means that rain drops will run off.

Pruning overgrown honeysuckle

In my experience Honeysuckle can take a really radical haircut. I do mine in Spring, using absolutely no finesse at all, just hacking huge amounts of stuff off. It always seem to come back strong.

I have no yellow either. Mine are labelled up, so that I can place them better next year.
