Here is a stock photo of some trailing petunias I have. They have had a rough year for some reason and I thought they died, but they are growing back now.

I like plants with trumpets , especially the pink angel trumpets , but beware , every part of the plant is poisonous .

You’re right! Now that prompts my memory, a caladium is correct. Thankyou for IDing it for me. I’d love to have one myself. Saw this one at a show last year I think.

Reminds me of Caramel pie!!! … such yummy memories :smiley::pie:

I used to bring a pot of water to the boil, drop in the can of condensed milk, and let it gently boil - oh, I forget for how long - then remove from stove, let cool before opening and voila! It was now caramel!! Then this was used to fill a pie shell. Once, I forgot to wait … punctured the lid with the can opener and caramel shot out and up in a stream!!! Funny now :grin:

Which reminds me of another tin rattling in a pan of boiling water .

The dreaded Kaolin Poultice .

My childhood doctor seemed to me to think that a kaolin poultice was a universal remedy .

When I had mumps she prescribed it .

Other times she prescribed it .

I remember saying to my mum as she took me to the doctor’s : " She won’t tell you to put a poultice on it will she ?"
