Just another flying visit Im afraid.

Have not had time to catch up on all of your goings on, so I hope everyone is wel, and that your gardens are looking wonderful, remember this is the time of tear to relax, and enjoy all your hard work.

Have now caught up on sleep and finally removed all the mud.

Off to sort out Mum, I am doing this week, as we are off to the Highlands next week.

See you soon.

Mike, I am sorry that this will be a very brief "medical " opinion as I am about to drive down to visit poorly mother. The absolutely most common cause of your current feelings is the UTI itself. See your GP, but it should start to improve with the antibiotics.

Get well soon.

PS. How do I have an 80 year old mother, when I am so young?

Morning fellow forkers.

have not been around much last few days, as mother is ill. Remarkable woman, 88, nearly blind and still living by herself, despite my attempts to persuade her otherwise. i shall be driving  to and fro for a few days and then hopefully one of my sisters might take over, so i can go to Glastonbury.

Enjoy the weather and your gardens, and hopefully i will see you soon.

really glad the wedding went well OL.

Plant id please

The leaves definetely look like Darmera, but the flowers dont. I grow it around my pond, and the flowers which do come before the leaves on mine are conical.

It is def. a foxglove, not D,ferruginea as i grow that one. It could be D.parviflora as that is brown, but there are a number of other brown foxgloves available.

Asthma and Gardening

Asthma and hayfever are both essentially allergic reactions, so it makes sense that exposure to pollen could indeed make your asthma worse.
