Afternoon,all. Just spoken on the phone to my son, who lives in Hertfordshire. He's in hot sunshine, we're in rain -again! I'm so envious! Washed lots of flower pots today - surprisingly satisfying seeing them neatly stacked. I also bought three beautifully healthy young honeysuckles in Aldi - Graham Thomas, Henrii and Belgica. There were lovely clematis, too, together with some other things. I knew from past experience that by Monday they'll be struggling through lack of water and later in the week they'll probably be dead. I asked the girl at the checkout (nicely) why they weren't watered.
'Oh, we do water them,' she said. 'The air conditioning draws the water out of them.'
'How often?' I persisted.
'Every other day,' she replied.
I held back the obvious retort that they had better be watered every day, then, but I think I'll write to the manager.
Another hour until the curfew and we go over to Evening Forkers. See you there! Bring your own cake.
