Good piece of info that about B&Q -e-mail membership, Am already a card carrier, so will enquire next time i go in.
Good morning all Damp and drear here in Norfolk today, but temps only went down to 9C overnight (and they're still there), so that's a bit of an improvement.
I imagine Andy is up and scurrying around - Good luck at The Show!!!
Lots to do today, getting ready for our hols (did I mention we're going on holiday ) quick visit ot M&S for vital underpinnings and socks and maybe a top or three , and I'll get the car cleaned and valeted in the car park while I'm there - and I might call in at Carluccio's for some very good coffee and a delicious brunch - better not have any brekkie before I go
Hi Dove, where are you going on holiday? Hopefully somewhere nice and warm to make up for the dreadful weather that's been going on lately.
Morning all. Damp and 8 degrees here.
Happy hols Dove.
No gardening today having company this evening so indoor jobs to be done
Must get toms in final buckets tomorrow and have a poke in runners to see what's happening, still no show even though indoors.
Have a good weekend everyone.
We're heading down to Cornwall at the end of next week - Verdun promises that temperatures will be virtually tropical compared with what we have here
KEF glad you got your card ok.

Thoss pesky slugs..under every pot there's a small slug. been on a few night time slug missions, by far the best way to control them.

Enjoy your weekend folks
Morning all. Back to damp and rain here. Ah well- summer was nice yesterday - I enjoyed it thoroughly while it lasted!
Hope you have a lovely break Dove- Verdun will show you all the sights I'm sure
Went to Pentire many many years ago -only time I've been to Cornwall.
Like GillyL - I'll have to go to B&Q and see if they have posts ,and cement too - didn't have any last time
Have a good day everyone - hope Mrs Andy wins lots of reds today
Morning all a little late busy putting the entries into wife's car for going to the show now on there way. Thanks for all the good luck messages will let you know this evening how things went no matter what she enjoys cooking & baking as my father always said your house is a good chuck house. Am now going to plant some gladioli in the front garden got 6 in a large plastic box in greenhouse about 4 inches high. Weather overcast but rain now off hope it stays off till late evening will take a walk down to the show later on if weather stays dry have a good day all.
Morning all- have a great time Dove - we shall miss you on the morning shift !
Verd - the slugs are back here too - think it is now warm enough for nematodes - must get my order in.
Enjoy your day, everyone - and don't forget TV coverage of Chelsea starts at 5pm tomorrow evening (for those who like that sort of thing - I certainly do).
I hope you have a lovely time in Cornwall, Dove. We went there mid June 2 years ago, but it was too late for all the rhodos and azaleas.We visited 9 gardens! Fantastic. I liked some of the privately owned ones that you don't hear as much about, such as a nice lady who had a national clematis collection on the outskirts of Truro. And a really beautifull garden full of perennials called "Hidden Valley (I think). Little lanes not that easy to find but worth it! We loved Trebah as well. The fishing villages are so pretty too and there are some lovely old pubs.
Looking forward to hearing about the show Andy. Good luck!
Thunderstorm last night, pouring. Time for some re-potting in the GH.
Morning all. Bit overcast, but warmish. Must get myself off this sofa and outside otherwise I will turn into stone.
Spent many lovely holidays in Cornwall not always in the best of weathers! Remember vividly on one occasion when we got the tail end of a hurricane in America. Was very scarey. Mevagissy was a must every year. My favourite place is Looe where I would love to visit out of school holidays!! My problem now is the travelling.
Hope you do well Andy and I loved the azalea. Makes me want to try again as I never seem to get it right.
Just spotted another Kitchen spam, have reported to moderator!
Well spotted Sue, I've emailed daniel too.
On the positive side the phone number has been omitted and the website address has been obfuscated in order to beat the spam filters.
While it is annoying it got through it is pretty much useless as SEO spam as it will not link and raise page rank. Great work from the website team
I think a regular expression can catch this too, and will be a little bit of fun to create as an exercise (like a crossword puzzle or a sudoku).
Friend of mine has a new gallery on flickr. Some really nice flower photo's
Just had a quick look blackest (while doing ironing ) - those water lilies are just divine...
sounding a bit Elton John there..
Where exactly is the garden- do you know?
It's in California http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filoli You may have seen it before if you ever watched Dynasty
Lovely pix tho
Blackest. Fab pics!
