That’s a shame. I bought a bulb from Wilko’s earlier this year, but not sure it’s come through. There is something in the vicinity but it’s leaves are nothing like this plant, so it could just be a weed!! 😂 Letting it grow, so we’ll soon find out! 🥴 @sharonhayden

I had one a couple of years ago, I just haven’t got round to getting another but I will….Barney is better now it’s burst…it’s pointless seeing a vet again because the next thing they’ll do is recommend an operation or procedure to cut the effected area away which has no guarantee and it could pop up somewhere else so we’ll deal with it at home…as for me I’m going to have an X-ray the doctor thinks it could be my hip and not Sciatica so I’m on Naproxen…🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️

Great news regarding Barney, less so regarding yourself 🙁 Do hope it’s something they can sort for you 😘 @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom
