My dahlias are starting to come out so I expect they will be the stars for the next few weeks.

What will you do when you've left the saltmines, Lily? Will you look for something else?

OH is now stuck on the M11 which is closed because of an accident.

Do you sing KEF?

Blueberry bush

I didn't net my blueberry before going on holiday, the housesitter said the berries were stripped by birds in one day. But they do fruit better if you have more than one variety.

Have removed 2 barrow loads of weeds, prunings, dead headings etc from the flower garden. 1 bed finished another half finished.

OH has gone to England for 6 days . Visiting a friend whose wife died and another who he was at school and uni with.

Hello Marion, I'm still reading your posts, even if not saying anything. We've been on holiday and had summer visitors.

Good luck with Bristol in Bloom, it would be great to win something in your Jubilee year.

Callibrachoa or Million Bells are short lived tender perennials, usually grown as annuals. If you want to keep them over winter you take cuttings. But you can buy them as plug plants in the spring.

Morning all.

I hope your Mum enjoys her supper tonight, Verdun.

I also think you've made the right decision, Stacey.

When my horse was 30 he had pericarditis, inflammation of the lining of the heart. A young vet came and dosed him up with expensive medication. When I asked if he could put him to sleep the vet said he deserved a chance. Then old H collapsed and couldn't get up so I asked for the boss vet. Boss vet was furious and said he should have been put down and I told him young vet refused. Not a condition an old horse could survive so H suffered for longer and I had a big bill.

My OH says I'm cuddly

Hear, hear Fraxinus, I've wondered that too, not fair!
