Why is your name so called?

My name is Liz and I'm always busy as I have a big garden.

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.

I only skimmed through this page, now I've read Dewdrops post properly. I'm sorry about your relative, so stressful for you. I hope the prognosis turns out better than you thought. Hugs.

Just read back about 4 pages, been laughing. Just when I was thinking of joining in and it's calmed down.


pp said about Tom Daley "HF it's a very small budgie in those smugglers!" a) how do you know? Is your TV screen big? b) Maybe the water was cold in the pool


I was a student nurse once too. A man came into A&E with his you know what stuck in a vacuum cleaner hose.


I did lots of gardening this afternoon. Was much cooler after the storm. 3 barrow loads of stuff now added to the tip.

Oh gosh, Dove is really quite tidy, I thought she would be.


I have a box where I put papers and stuff until it overflows then I have to sort it a bit to make room for the next lot. It's in the kitchen and easy to deal with as when guests come I just shove it somewhere else. I always have a load of papers next to my lap top on the kitchen table, when people come I shove it all in the box etc. Really organised, but it seems to irritate OH.

Gosh, that's a bit extreme pp, I hope it didn't cause lasting damage. I worked in Boots for a few months, before starting nursing training, most of the customers were nice.

Rocket, spring onions, perpetual spinach (keep moist),radishes (keep moist too). My son-in-law sowed French beans the end of July last year and got a crop.
