HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 24/07/2014 at 17:09

Love blackberry jam, sieve them to get rid of the pips. Don't like them in my teeth!

Have daughter no 2 here and  2 of her friends. That makes (with my OH) 7 adults, 5 small children and 2 babies. Daughter No 1 and OH and 3 small sons coming tomorrow. Have I said all that already? Starting to feel confused, meal times are pretty noisy! We are escaping to Yorkshire on Saturday. Said that before!

No time for gardening, but must freeze some runner beans, they've gone mad.

I've had loads, they are taller than me, getting to the top of the trellis, need picking again, but - can't succeed all the time - the outdoor tomatoes were rubbish, got blight and the yellow courgettes taste horrid.

 

They're bossing it now........

I've lost all my echinaceas - again. Had several tries they just don't like this garden, nor do montbretias, nor lupins. Lysimachia punctata adores it, blast it! Dahlias are quite happy. Heleniums, after a couple of false starts, have settled in. Weeds think my garden is great!

So sorry Mrs. G, I can understand you wanting to cry. You have the memories though.

Daughter's front door was totally smashed up, the door firm are fitting a stronger one. Luckily the neighbour called the police quickly. Thank you for your sympathy.

Here's a Google pic of Renishaw Hall to give an idea. Looks lovely.

Oh no, Mrs. G, what a shame. I would have loved to have seen them. Sorry I'm not techy.

Thank you Yviestevie. We didn't get to go there when we were in Shropshire, just a bit too far away.

If I lived in England I would love to come. Green with envy!  Also that's the day of my grandson's baptism.
