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.

I don't think there is really room there, looking at my carrots, beetroot and spinach which are a lot bigger something will be crowded out.

Doc said that as I was planning my 2nd and was on the pill I should allow 3 months to get back normal so poor little chap was born in January instead of April, springtime.

Hello all. Our visitors have just left for the airport with OH. Having coffee before tackling the long overdue weeding, but it's just rained.

Have I missed all the baby talk? I had 4, now have nearly 8 grandchildren. First baby took 24 hours, hardly got to the hospital in time for the 4th. The nurse told me I couldn't push because she hadn't filled in the admission papers. But it was too late and No 4 was born! Only had 1 painful contraction. Went to hospital because waters had broken, not because of pain. They are all coming to stay in August, except No.4 because he lives nearby, for No.4's baby (grandchild no.7) is being baptised.
