What is your weather like?

We had some rain yesterday, late afternoon, but not nearly enough.

Morning all.

We had a bit of rain last night, not as much as I'd hoped, so not enough to give Wonky any. But it has put some in the waterbutts so the blueberries will be happier.

I didn't sow my Wild Swans. They were decent healthy plants when I bought them. I think it's just too hot and dry in summer in Dordogne.

Good gardening day, weeded and deadheaded most of the end bed and finished the upper middle bed. I was given a red and white dahlia for judging the garden show so I planted it in the middle bed.

Then, at 4.30 we left to go to a choral concert in a ruined abbey. It was a Dutch choir on a singing holiday. They'd asked my house sitting friend to play the keyboard to accompany them. She is a pianist and runs a local choir. They were pretty good, but not many in the audience. Dutch and English, think there were only 2 French people. But while we were there the rain started, lucky a bit of the abbey had a roof!

Had chicken chasseur with beans and cabbage from the garden while we watched Tatton Flower Show, but we missed the first half, back to late. I recorded the 2nd half while I was cooking. Snickers ice cream for pud.

Morning all.

We had fish and chips last night, not on a pier but on the terrace. Neither chess nor cards, we just talked. Recorded Tatton Park and watched afterwards.

Still cooler, rain forecast this afternoon, hope it comes, garden needs it.

A lot cooler the last couple of days, low 20s. 2 very short showers. Rain forecast this afternoon, hope it comes, badly needed.

Sounds wonderful, especially the milder winter bit. Good luck with the move.
