Mum more alert today.  Smiling a lot.  Drinking lots of tea today but resisting eating.  She resents me insisting she eats...carer spoon feeding me the occasional glare followed by a smile and comment.  

I know it's wrong but one of the residents goes around pinching spectacles, dentures, hearing aids and anything he fancies and I have so much resentment towards him.  My mum had a card today but couldn't read it cos I'm sure he's got her glasses again. He tried to enter my mum's room last evening but I said "no.  Not your room" but what can we do?

brother causing more mischief again this morning  at the care home but I'm just going to ignore it.

very best wishes to everyone going through difficult times

Just taken my dog on the towans.  Pleasant.  Sunny at times. the odd fleeting shower but few and far far. Temps prob 8 an hour or so ago. 

We are all joking here about coping with this storm!  Roof prob blown off tonight for my  tempting fate 

Aeonium 'Zwartkop':- over-wintering.

Posted: 10/12/2014 at 16:28

I guess it's where we live too.  No watering over winter, cold gh and thats it.  No really cold temps for any length of time so it will be different elsewhere.  Outside they usually survive if kept dry here.

I agree aeoniums will respond In spring ....spring to life .() watering.  

New Year gardening resolutions

Posted: 10/12/2014 at 16:22

Grow less annual stuff...not much anyway....and divide more perennials at planting time to make bigger groups, to discard anything that doesn't look good, to be ruthless with one or two dahlias that arent to my taste and to generally appreciate myself a lot more for the lovely guy I am 

Fallen leaves on veg beds

Posted: 10/12/2014 at 12:24

Not fastidious about leaves on veg patch (re tidyness) but I dig a hole or two and bury those leaves.    they will do far more good than blowing about.

Weird weather Frank.  Still fine here but darker and the odd shower threatening.  No wind...eerily calm.   

spoke too soon raining now!
