Morning forkers Lots of doggy stuff to read about - lovely pics.
Was absent yesterday as i was not a happy bunny. Spent a good while cleaning broken glass up from patio and garden. Like most of you, we had terrific gales here and a gust of wind blew the bbq cover clean off and as it sailed through the air it decapited all the glass balls on my solar lights. They weren't expensive but they were really pretty and now they are no more Just left with a pile of sticks poking up from the ground. Glass was everywhere
Right off for more coffee. Rant over.
Here is the 2 1/2 yr old Olive...as in black olive
Good Morning All.
It's a pain about your lights Jean, we have got some old fashioned garden lights,that work off the mains, and most of the shades were blown all over the garden, some ending up in the pond, but otherwise we were luck enough to get away with no damage to the garden and fences.
Bunny, -- lovely dog and by the way, you have an echo
Damp here, but lots of chattering birds.
TV highlight tonight - Monty's new series begins. This photo is from Radio Times. I think the Monet garden will be next week...
Looking forward to Monty's prog tonight. We have visited a few of the gardens he is featuring, Villandry being a particular favourite. the French vegetable gardens are really spectacular. Should be well worth watching, perhaps give us some ideas for this years planting, will just need to be scaled down somewhat
Wet and miz here, not too windy thnk goodness. Poor Jean, it's so sad to see lovely things spoilt.
Bunny, I love Olive as dog name and she looks gorgeous but aren't black animals difficult to photograph?
Lizzie, Tigger is so cute. My sister's collie always has his tongue tip protruding in photos. I'd never been bothered either way about the breed until I fostered a 10 year old rescue three years ago. He had a few 'issues' as collies sometimes do and must have been hit with a lead as he would cower if you accidentally moved it too close to his head. He repaid the effort I put in and I fell in love with him. If I hadn't been workign I would have kept him but, after 5 months a lovely lady adopted him. She send me the occasional update and they are very happy together.
Where's Bjay? I want to see the new avatar!
Had a poorly little girl last night, but she has improved this morning! Although she is milking it, angling for a day off nursery.
Oh Jean, what a pain in the arse. Are they expensive to replace?
yes tend to need plenty sun!!! we got olive from lad i worked with, last pup of his sons ....no home to go to , siblings all gone....and what a character she is!!!
awww poor little thing, is she having a mummy day ?
Not if I can help it Bunny!! She'll be there, just as normal!
You're a hard woman Becks, just joking, hope she is ok That's kids for you up and down.
Chris! I know a perfectly well little girl when I see one. Yesterday, when she came home from nursery, all she did was lie on the settee with a blanket on her, and never moved until bedtime. In fact she fell asleep on there. That is NOT Jess.
This morning, she is finger painting, in and out the fridge (not literally ) and on and off her scooters, back to normal. She is fine! She has just said she wants to go now.
wet here but no wind
jen its horrible when you work hard to have a nice garden then it gets destroyed by wind
Glad she's better, going to see my"little girl" of 34 later today.
Darren. We all suffer from wind from time to time
So sorry about your lights Jean.
Hope your little girl is better soon Becks. Children get ill and better again very quickly. I had four. 6 grandchildren! Probably more to come.
Lovely dog Bunny, Tigger would like her. Great name.
Looking forward to Monty's French gardens programme. Not many French gardens open to the public round here. A lot of topiary in them, which isn't really my thing although it can give structure. I like flowers, the more the merrier.
