Faywray, hard to believe you built all that with all those gorgeous plants on a concrete drive. An inspiration. Did you break up any of the concrete or is it all in pots and planters?

Obelixx said "Busy - lot of funerals lately!   Hope you're OK."  Thank you. Tomorrow will be the funeral of our 4th friend who has died this year. He was a special friend, the husband of my lovely friend who introduced me to OH and who introduced OH to the big choir he sings in. They came to my son's wedding. Hard to believe he's gone, such an intelligent and witty man. We used to go to the cinema together to see the live films of the New York Met's operas.


This evening we went to a choir rehearsal for tomorrow's funeral. My friend helped organise their concerts. Neither she or I sing but she found musicians for the orchestra and I made them tea, sandwiches and cakes. Dreading tomorrow.

They certainly aren't perennial in SW France. When I sowed them they took a long time to get going, but I had better results from plug plants. We have cold winters.

When we were in Norfolk in June we also visited a lovely private garden with a pretty manor house surrounded by a moat. It was open for the NGS.

What is your weather like?

Has been hot, badly need rain. Had thunderstorms last night but only a little rain. Much cooler today though, a comfortable 23°.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 31/07/2016 at 22:11

It was much cooler today after the storm so I spent most of the afternoon in the garden. Another 3 barrowloads of dead headings, prunings off the New Dawn and the grape vine etc have been added to the tip behind the wall at the end of the garden.

The leccy was only off a bit last night, was on before bedtime, but we switched off the Wifi in case there were further storms in the night. No storms today but cooler.
