Feel a bit of a twit  I said "Allegro" instead of "Valegro" on page 2. Must be because of having a piano playing OH.

Talking of stumperies, we went to the one at Arundel Castle, Sussex in 2014. It had the typical shady section with Hostas etc, but also had a sunny bit with huge Echiums.

What is your weather like?

Sun and 28° so far. Been out looking for electric fence posts for daughter's horse. The whole world is also in Dordogne. Many of them bringing their camping cars and caravans.

I love Carl Hester too, lovely, generous man. Watched all the Dressage on the red button yesterday. Superb. Hope Charlotte and Allegro do well in the individual Free Style on Monday. I prefer Peter Storr's commentary to Ian Stark's, but Peter is a dressage rider whereas Ian is an eventer.

Yes Fairy, love Carl Hester. He seems a lovely person. I used to read his articles when I used to get Horse and Rider magazine.

Yesterday was 10° in the morning and 25° in the afternoon. From what Dove said on Forkers thread it was warmer near Norwich than it was here in Dordogne! But we should be in for some hot weather, not really looking forward to it. Still need rain. Just not on the 20th when I'm having a charity BBQ.

Glad Chicky and Lesley had good hols.


Lovely photos of DD and Charlie looking happy. Hope I will get an invite one day


Didn't come here yesterday, busy morning then watched the whole of the dressage on the red button. Fabulous. I used to do a bit of dressage, not as easy as they make it look, though my mare could do extended trot and canter sideways.


We got a new TV for our bedroom recently, the other was 15 years old. We have Sky in the sitting room and a Freebox with satellite in the bedroom. But French Freebox is via an ordinary aerial, so I would think you could get UK Freebox with an ordinary aerial in the UK.

Thank you Yvie, I haven't been to either of them. Lovely wild flower areas. The fairies at Trentham are beautiful, was it Fidget who posted them before?

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Haven't had time to garden the last week, visits from children and grandchildren. But I have done watering and have picked loads of tomatoes, cucumbers, courgettes and runner beans. Had the odd onion too which are almost ready to harvest. The red sweet peppers are getting big and green. The mangetout peas and broad beans were over some time ago, lots in the freezer. Same for the raspberries, but the autumn ones will be ready soon.

My daughter has just rung me to say she has heard on her car radio that there is a forest fire near me. I don't think that is the one you have seen as there are big fires near Marseilles in the South of France so they would have been on TV. The one here is about 7km away, 20 hectares of forest, but I think, with help from the army and other fire stations, that it's now under control. July has been very dry here, the promised thunderstorms hardly produced any rain.
