You startled me with your word 'scorchio', FG, because that's a parody on Welsh verb construction. Yet you're in Scotland! I sometimes play flippantly with English words and give them that 'io' ending = dancio, singio, etc(io is pronounced Eeyore, for aa true Welsh flavour, btw).
Bev, I was with a slightly irritating and somewhat controlling friend who talked endlessly and made me guide her around the shrubs, with no chance to look at things that interest me. Even forgot to get pots. It was a bit of a duty visit. (What a bitch I am! )
Had a pleasant, idle day after a week of hard work. Feel mildly guilty, however illogical that is, but it was nice. My home-grown plants are mostly too small to plant as yet, though coming on nicely.
