Lovely photos, Charlie N. When enlarged they are really sharp and clear.

I like mrhursty's path with the plants spilling on to it.

I wish Runnybeak's pictures would turn the right way up when I enlarge them.

Thank you Flumpy.

That's a lovely clematis Marion. Could it be Dr. Ruppel?

France is meant to be having a heatwave from Thursday too.

Welcome back Runnybeak. Glad you enjoyed Turkey. Was it pretty? Was it by the sea?

Been trying to get everything ready before we go to New York. Must make housesitter's bed tomorrow. Been clearing up and putting away all the china, cutlery etc from the Strawberry Tea and clearing away the plants no one bought in the plant sale.

Re-potted annuals that I want to plant when we get back when the tulip leaves have died. There will be a heatwave while we are away so I don't want anything newly planted in the borders. Housesitter can water them more easily in the cold frames. Have watered veg garden and pots.

Good luck with your Open Day, Woody. Hope it goes as well as mine, but I expect you will get more people in England. The French haven't really cottoned on to it yet. Most of my 57 visitors were English.

mrhursty, your link doesn't work for me. Did you do it by clicking on the oak tree? Then get rid of the error message, wait for your photo to arrive then click save.

Good morning Marion.

I think lots of people read your thread but look on it as being your thread so they don't post anything. I won't be posting soon as we are going to New York, leaving Tuesday. OH's choir has been invited to sing in Carnegie Hall on Sunday. I hope the housesitter waters my pots and the tomatoes in the GH, a heatwave is forecast here.

Morning all.

KEF, DD's Open Garden is 29th June.

Rain forecast for tonight, then heatwave up to 35°. We will be away then, so I hope housesitter waters the pots properly.

I'm glad you had a good Open Day on Wednesday. You have a lovely garden.

I've been busy again, having had my Open Day, I held a Strawberry Tea today for a cancer charity, 40 people came, was quite hard work but I had a good team of helpers.
