Back home now. Son and DIL had a lovely lunch.


Heard the cuckoo yesterday. Usually around the 21st, daughter 1's birthday.


Nice looking plants, Dove.

It's a really cheap old polycarbonate GH, bought mail order in France, arrived with made in England written on it, very complicated to assemble. Windows tend to blow off in the wind and are re-inforced with sticky tape.

Was going to post yesterday that I think I've killed my tomato seedlings, didn't open the GH on Tuesday when we went out and it was 20° outside, got up to 48° in the GH.

Hello. Tree fell on phone line yesterday so no phone or Internet. Farmer came this morning and chopped up the tree, France Telecom have repaired the line. But I'm babysitting at son's and have OH's iPad. Was worried in case I couldn't get up the drive because of the tree. They have gone out to lunch for DIL's birthday.


Relieved and pleased for Lily P that baby is back with her mother.


Was disappointed for Wonky about the GH but sounds as though all's well that ends well thanks to Dove.

I'm sorry to hear baby is ill again, Lily. I'm sure the medical treatment is good, Russia isn't a prehistoric country by any means. But it must be so frustrating being so far away.


I must stop putting off weeding that overgrown flower bed. Well, I was going to dig it all up and start again.

Hello amberspy.


Ouch, Joyce, that sounds more painful than the dentist.


I've done the fun bit, planting forget-me-nots, still putting off the overgrown bed.
