12 degrees here earlier 

haven't been to Foodbank for quite some time........other things right  now....but met with old colleague from there. it seems it's busier there than ever and they have expanded.  Ought to try and make some time to help out again

My mum was very weak today.  In pain too So I've asked for increased meds. Very tired and distressing to see.  Right now I fear the worst.

Frank, I mixed sawdust and sulphate of ammonia but that was in my brutal days. Everything then was forced and over the top

Realised I misinformed everyone about my,mum and her x ray. ,when I said no issues I meant she coped well enough with the journey there and procedures. ,won't know results for 6 days or so.  I fully expect a problem with her...but we live in hope.

lovely story about your uncle Pauline.

A clue often is in the foliage colour..........pale green foliage is sometimes a clue it will have white flowers.  With mixed colours I often segregate the pale leaved seedlings of various plants and white is common.

Can you put a cloche over it ...agastache.....KEF?  Or at least fleece?

Never tried it but there's a new cerinthe with yellow flowers.  Might be an attractive combination ..?

Is it too cold to do hedge cutting?

Posted: 05/12/2014 at 16:39

It's only of concern if cold frosty weather occurs at the time of resulting new if cut now and we have a mild spell new growth will present itself.  Likely then to be hard hit.
