No rain here.  Very warm and muggy and still.  Hot yesterday and if the sun pops out it will be hot again.  

It's my birthday

Mark , just read your post...Sorry, I've .been bit  distracted myself lately.  .  I think it's a lovely  thing to put a plaque in your garden for  your  dad.  The garden should include such sentiment and dedication and honour.  hope you and your mother are coping during this very difficult time.

Usually these caterpillars attack in mid summer.  I spray with an insecticide ....can be organic fatty acids ......or simply cut back,the foliage hard back and clear away debris for a renewed flush of foliage and flower for the rest of the year.

Thanks David.  Yes, it's the damp down here too not the cold.

Morning beaus mum.    I like to get things done and dusted, out of the way   I do have the mentality to want to finish jobs as soon as started.  Not a lot of time these days.   Hope you are well

Lyn, I identify with your situation.  Trying to get my mum to drink plenty of water etc is not always easy.  There is too an awful lot of guilt associated with looking after elderly parents isn't there?  Don't need further aggro.  Hope you are coping 

My nephew is a paramedic ...he is one of the caring ones and I must say they have mostly been excellent when dealing with my mum.  There will always be the judgemental, callous element in every walk of life.  

Spoke with an elder of my mums church this morning too.....half telling him off and half  encouraging their support for my mum.  Difficult for me to be tactful but I managed it

Same situation here at the other end of the country fairy........no rain and even when suggested it remains dry. However I'm happy with that. Painted a wall ( last evening)  and fence (this morn)  knowing it will stay dry    The garden, apart from containers, is coping well without rain. So rain, rain stay away for me 

Hope those poorly will improve ASAP and those with issues can cope with them.
