HELLO FORKERS AUGUST EDITION

Posted: Yesterday at 09:37

Morning all.


Thanks Joyce and Obelixx, we are off this afternoon. I'm doing lots of watering before we go. Should be 34° this afternoon and the forecast for the next 2 weeks is hot and sunny. Think it will be a relief to be in England, where the forecast is low 20s. Just right.


Feel so sorry for the people in that Italian town. Horrific.

Lovely. Could the fuchsia be "Delta's Sarah"?

Hot and sunny. 31° yesterday. More of the same for the next 2 weeks but we'll be in England. I hope the housesitters water everything. Wish it would rain properly. They keep forecasting storms and heavy rain, then change their minds.

Morning all. Looks like being another hot day.


Glad things are getting sorted out for DD.


Topbird, we are going to England tomorrow, but will be going to Kent and Sussex as well as Norfolk, visiting friends.


Preparing for going today. Watering garden, washing sheets, packing. Just realised veg garden is a mass of weeds. Too hot or too busy to work in it except for watering. I had to buy extra tomatoes for my BBQ as the children had eaten them all the week before, now there are masses, just as we are going away. Shall put some in the freezer.

Haven't had rain for weeks, then it rained on Saturday, day of my BBQ. Typical.


31° sun today. That would have been too hot for my BBQ, think I preferred the rain.

I have 9 grandchildren, living in France, and OH has two in England, aged from 1 to 10. Summer holidays means I get to see more of them.

Echinaceas don't like my garden, nor does Anemone Wild Swan  Well done for the White Swan.


I have rudbeckias, heleniums, salvias, phlox, penstemens, phygelius, hardy geraniums, dahlias, fuschias, echinops ritro, and can't remember what else, out at the moment, various different sorts. And annuals and roses.

Congratulations to Obelixx and Lesley for anniversaries and Happy Birthday to Fairylet.


It was 31° here today. We went to visit DIL, her OH and 2 grandchildren (OH's) at the campsite where they are on holiday in Dordogne. We all went out to lunch in nearby town and paddled in the river, which was freezing!
