Oh dear Sweet Pea, your poor thigh. Have you tried Cortisone?

Daughter and family went home this afternoon so I worked in the veggie garden. Planted out the French beans, the last of the runners, first ones are going nicely up the poles now, and 4 outdoor cucumbers and did some weeding and watering. One of the grandsons has broken my blue penstemon, waiting to be planted, in half

Having mug of milky instant coffee. Yuk, I hear some of you say!

Lilac Bush Pruning

Then prune it as soon as it would have finished flowering, so as soon as possible. It will make new shoots for flowering next year. But feed it as well with a fertiliser for flowering shrubs or roses. Lilacs are greedy and thirsty plants.

Morning all. Slept really well, overslept.

Cucumbers like water but they hate sitting in it. They can collapse quite quickly in cold wet ground. When I plant them now, after advice, I plant them on a slight mound to help drainage. They are usually fine once they've got going, but vulnerable when young plants.

Love your pink poppies Chicky. Not phlox though - that's July. They are red Sweet Williams.

Your bed is lovely, Cardoon, looks mature already. No one would know you are new to gardening.

Daughter No.1 with 3 small sons has left to go to son No.2's house for the evening. Peace! Daughter No.2 left after lunch to stay with son No.1 near Orleans. 7 adults and 5 children sat down for lunch here today. The boys age 6 and 8 went in the pool this afternoon, water too cold for me, 20°. Shade temp. 23° sunny day. But yesterday when daughter No.1 arrived it poured.

Lovely lot of clematis.

Your plants have gone back amazingly well, Wintersong, after the fence man had been.
