Morning all, slept in and could not believe the time.
Looking lovely out, sun shining and breeze dropped. Must get on as next door's GH needs opening and I can't really go around there in my dressing gown.
No strawberries ready yet.
I was awake at 5am but was determined not to get up.So enjoyed my last lay in.I'll be doing plenty of pottering today.It's a lovely sunny day so need to make the most of it.
Have a good day all
Not a strawb. expert chickey but believe you can pin, as you say. Get some nice big paper clips from work? Working from home is always best.
And following up at the rear............
Morning everyone. I was going to get early today, well for me. Awake at 8 and the next thing it was 10!! Will miss you Bev as you make me less guilty about getting up late. Just in case we are passing ships today, I wish you all the best for tomorrow and hope all goes well. It's good that you feel well enough to return.
Lovely morning so quick coffee, breakfast and - where's my paint.
Woodie, going to call you that, unless you object, no work at all is even better, but I have to agree working from home is good. Did it for many years some while back. As long as the work got done, you could do it when it suited.
Best get going.
Well, now I've watered I'd better start on the dahlia cuttings!.
When I woke it was really sunny, so i jumped out of bed to get to it, but now its cloudy and there is a cool wind. I'm more inclined to sit here drinking coffee.
If its any consolation folks not much sun here right now. Warm though
No gardening today...it's my foodbank volunteering day. David cameron is trying to claim he helped set up the foodbanks......he CAUSED the need for them. Politicians!
No doughnuts today verdun !!!!
Morning - just
Have been trying to upload a photo onanother thread and it won't let me!!

Tricky day yesterday- OH wise
Today I have to bath dog - smelly dog in small caravan is not recommended eeew
I also have to move containers so son and NDN don't have a lot of bother watering when we are away.
Off to try and upload a pic - back later
Good luck tomorrow Bev- I'm sure you'll be welcomed by all your friends even if the old crone has a 'right face on her'
No gardening this afternoon for me either Verd - Black Dragon opening up .....
Off out to a friend so catch up later.
Hope she has cake....
Lovely sunny day here in the south so thought i would wash all the sofa cushion covers,wish i hadnt started.As a treat i am now going out to plant my new plants, one is a pink campanula called pink octopus has a very strange smell bur amongst the other plants im sure i wont smell it. It makes a change to have the back door open.
Did i hear the word cake? yes please
Maud, why do we set ourselves stupid tasks to do when the sun shines. Well, some of us do.
Have decided to leave one wall as it is puurfeck and far enough away from first wall so you don't notice the slight difference in colour. Who looks at walls anyway. Got done what I wanted and, at the risk of sounding as if I'm complaining, was so hot. Have tidied the pond lilly without taking a dip, tidied the shed and sorted my gardening box out. Now know what I've got. Actually didn't have 2 of anything, which makes a change.
Lunch in the garden and a boost of vitamen D.
Maud, I just bought campanula Pink Octopus today, never heard of it before. It's still in bud so I haven't smelt it yet. Label said it's a flower arranger's delight but if it smells funny I wonder.
Went to Pashley Manor today, lovely garden very English. Will put photos on gardens we have visited thread.
I could have done with hanging the dog on the line. Bathed him, let him out, promptly rolled on grass, at least it's not covered in 'mess'. He has now spent ages washing his feet.
Turned on water tap this afternoon to find drinking water was brown, contacted water people and they said run it for 20mins. What about my water bill I cried (water meter) and he said I would be compensated so, fair enough, spent the time filling and re-filling watering cans and containers and some veg are now watered
Oh Bev I really do hope it all goes OK tomorrow. Will be thinking about you
Thank you Tina, Fairy and Matty.I will keep you posted. Tomorrow and Thursday are outings/ special activity days. Then we have an inset day on Friday. That is so next years timetable starts on Monday.
Luckily I'm not on a water meter yet- soon everyone will be- to save water they say
