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

spoke too soon raining now!

Not as much as he has Runnybeak but I am exactly twice his height at 6' 1" .  Nor his money 

however, so many performers are best not seen I guess.  That's why radio, CDs, memory sticks etc are best.  The older I get though the more I realise looks are just not important and......corny, corny's the kindness and heart that really counts

Morning folks.  Keep warm and dry 

right now weather looks good.  Some blue sky, sun, dry and not too windy.  However, it is sheltered garden....walled and trees beyond on the coast side. But showers, longer periods of rain and gale force winds were mentioned consistently in the forecast so I'm not complacent.    Expecting it all to change.....


Lemon tree

Mine produces fruit. 

my tree is still outside....mild s.w.

it will go in gh if it gets very cold.

I maintain regular watering...its in large pot....throughout summer and it receives seaweed spray, Epsom salts and fish blood and bone.

I also prune for short laterals.

however, the previous post is interesting and worth notIng I think

Aren't there nice people here?  Great and needed thread

saw my mum today and she was (relatively) better.  In bed in her room and not eating anything but she seemed more with it, smiling and even quite funny.

however, I had to suggest a food supplement...complan or ensure her intake.  The nurse in charge seemed to be taken aback, like it was a fantastic idea.  Tomorrow mum will have this.  It's a good home now but they still need monitoring.  They must dread my visits.  

My brother....I have diagnosed him as a simply a s..t.......He seems oblivious of our mother's needs, feelings etc.  he sent me a text to say he can't see her too much because it upsets him.  Also at her funeral he wants to stay at the back. He thinks then he won't have to pay for anything.  (He avoided his son's funeral a few years back who died age 25........"couldnt face it" .  However he again paid nothing). He simply is devoid of any empathy or feeling for anyone even at this late hour.
