    Well, I just had a look at the propolis gel and saw to my surprise that they say don't put it on open wounds. I used it on the cat bite hubby had that was infected and it was almost completely healed the next day. Used it on deep burns for both myself and diabetic friend, neighbour's huge boil which was definitely open wound and the dogs leg which if you remember was raw and it had almost completely healed the next day, so much so that the vet couldn't believe the speed it had worked. So I think I'll just carry on using it as I always have, after all, I must have been using it for over 10 years now. This is the first time I've heard them say don't use it on open wounds, perhaps they mean surgery type of wounds which I wouldn't mess with anyway. It doesn't mention it on the bottle either but then they seem to talk about it more for skin problems as in spots etc...

    That said, lots of people are using it for psoriasis and eczema and dermatitis. A lot of the reviews were for skin breakouts so I feel its real benefits aren't being mentioned, maybe people just don't realise how versatile and amazing this stuff is. Although someone did mention using it for chickenpox! Just read an interesting research article about propolis speeding up wound healing and that's what I've found even with the SBC range which they promote as a skin care product.

    Well that’s one good recommendation then. I think Susie should be on
    commission for all the tips she’s giving us

    I brought some Daffs in the other day, and this one stood out
    because of it’s bright orange trumpet.

    I don't think it's a coincidence Elaine, my hairdressers' little girl was extremely itchy and as I said, one propolis bath stopped all the itching and she had one dab of gel on each spot and by the next day they were healing beautifully, she's the mummy one who raced into playgroup and told them all to go and buy propolis - it was like Glory be I've seen the light! But it was exactly the same with our neighbour's granddaughter, the whole family went out buying propolis after that, it is just great to have it to hand. One chap I was reading about said as a chef he is always burning himself and I know when hubby and I have burnt ourselves we turn to it, sometimes after running under cold water but just as often not.

    Beautiful daffodil Ellie. We are at the vets this afternoon so there has to be something pretty along the way. Alder Hey Children's Hospital has a grass roof, does that count?

    The pansies are stunning. I usually have pansies going through the winter but for some reason I didn't do them last year.

    I couldn't take any photo's of Alder Hey Hospital because of the protests outside and the police presence. It would have looked so inappropriate and would have been inappropriate to do so. The family are in such a heartbreaking situation but despite what is says on some news reports it was all very quiet and peaceful I'm glad to say. I cannot imagine how it must feel to be in that situation, especially with a child.

    The weather is supposed to be getting much warmer by Wednesday, so we're looking forward to a day or two in the garden. The old boy's bottom has been sorted and he was very brave. The other not quite so old boy is going next week to have his booster. Mind you, at their age we don't believe in them and only ever give the Lepto unless say a severe bout of distemper is doing the rounds or perhaps parvo, in which case one or the other might be given. Our vet understands our feelings and having lost one dog to boosters in old age we'll never take the chance again. If 6 months down the line something else is doing the rounds I'd reconsider but definitely won't give them the lot at once.

    Beautiful photo's Elaine and whoever that woman is I'd have shot her! Some people shouldn't be allowed out in public, spoiling the view like that. Do we know what that tree/shrub is on the left of THAT woman, it is so pretty and interesting and the colour is amazing.

    Dull here too and raining no less but do I mind, not a jot. Good excuse for a day in.
