Morning all.

David K that beauty was on another thread, but I can't remember where, read so many posts recently!

Stopped raining, sun with white clouds. Want to plant the rest of the daffodils in the grass, but have to find the fault in the electric fence and mend it before the horses go back in that field. It always takes ages and involves lots of walking. They are eating their winter hay at the moment. Don't want them getting out again.

I have one that I am training to be a tree, but it's not big yet. The biggest one I have ever seen, but not a tree, is this one at Groombridge Place. On the right growing up a tree.

I'll have to read back, I got to where Fidgetbones asked what Butternut I grow. I thinbk it was Harrier from T & M, they were small, but I think I prefer my last year's ones which where a bit bigger, Cobnut from Suttons. They usually ripen well here as we often have warm weather into September and October. But today has been cold and wet. Anyway they are all harvested now.

Well done, Bob. What an incredible difference. Thanks for showing us the photos.

Wow! What on earth will they do with it afterwards? I'm quite happy with my delish baby butternut squashes, about 1lb each.

It's a beautiful garden and I was very lucky to be able to see it as Lilylouise invited me when we went to England in June. Lilylouise and her OH are lovely too.

WW, I remember you talking about your wife before. It moved me.

My husband died 15 years ago, but I am lucky in that I have met another lovely man in the last 5 years. Never meant to, but it happened. They are very different.
