Lucky.....very,,very lucky Steve.  Garden power tools are so potentially dangerous.  I have cut cables to hedgetrimmers, mowers, etc., and do take stupid risks.....cordless trimmer and mower now but still need great awareness.  More haste less.....fingers?

Hello forkers

lovely morning. 

only couple hours sleep...back from taking someone to A & E last night.  Got  there before 11 and left at past 4 30.  Suffice to say the hospital was a shambles.  Always thought the main issue was lack of money in the nhs but there is so much wrong with the system.  Will bite my tongue for now

May just be a poor flowering clone hosta. never had a miscanthus not flower even divided plants.  They are nice in the summer as they are but come this time of year those flowers are such a bonus.  Check out Cabaret ....prob best for foliage

And divide them Posy. You can do it now.  I did just that a few days ago.    You can then have a nice group of them.  Lovely with hydrangea limelight

Hosta, yes definitely a miscanthus but which one I don't know.  Maybe it will flower soon...still it will give a clue. 

thanks Runny. Funny thing is the hospital suggest eating as normal a diet as possible. yes, there is a mountain of ice cream here. If its as warm tomorrow as today I could make a start on that ice cream....or as Mr Burns of Simpsons fame says "iced cream"

A beautifully warm day but I have spent most of it in the hospital.  Told this morning my niece could come home I arrived there before 9.  Then told, when there, that she cannot leave before 12.  Then we waited until 4 pm for meds and discharge. so much for needing beds!!!! 

Hospital is severely under staffed.  I also felt some were under trained.  Some did not seem to know what they were doing.  Very pleasant and friendly but failed to present a sense of security or safety.  Eye opener really and not in a good way hey ho!  Another warm sunny day tomorrow....maybe get some gardening done 

love marzipan Fairy.  On its own or wrapped in chocolate or on cake or with icing or.........

Gardening grannie, you prob have the tender varieties.
