Fairygirl, I only have a Canon Ixus, but I've had to change its settings to take smaller photos of the garden to put them on here. But it's a shame for you because you take such superb photos.


Lovely day today. Must go and plant the runner beans when I've had my coffee.

Morning all.
Dove how did you put those photos on here? The photo window doesn't have external photos any more. Or did you put them in your own photo files first?

Mine have quite a lot of white on them. I don't like them very much, but they were free with my plug plant order.

Think you must have forgotten the Night Manager chappie, Tom Hiddleston, or DD wouldn't have dropped off! I certainly wouldn't have done if he'd been there  OH would have liked Darcey Bussell, but he's dropped off in front of David Attenborough. I've just come to the kitchen to get the pud, lemon posset. Hope OH wakes up, it's one of his favourites and he'll be missing Dad' Army, which he loves.


Have fun all.

So...............

I suppose there is deep fat frying, as in a chip pan.

Shame I'm so far away. OH and I are just having an apéritif, Campari (yuk) for OH, sweet sherry for me.


Don't think my figure fits hot pants anymore. But wouldn't mind being in a lift with Poldark.  RB, Verdun's only jealous because he hasn't got brooding eyes like Aidan's.


Will be watching The Hollow Crown. I asked OH what we could watch before that and he said we could gaze into each other's eyes.


I hope you feel less rough tomorrow, Fairy. All that fresh air must be doing you good.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

My Larkspurs and Orlaya haven't germinated  But last years clarkia has seeded itself all over the place, even though it's been rotavated.

Have planted out antirrhinums, cosmos and salpiglottis in the cutting bed. Also 3 Gypsophila Bristol Fairy that I'd grown in pots from bought roots. Something had nipped the cosmos seedling heads off - the seeds I sowed direct into the ground. Have planted out Little Gem lettuces.


Have had a big shuffle, there is now room to plant some tomatoes in the GH. Have re-sown the perpetual spinach, didn't germinate, think it was too cold when I sowed it.

Been letting horses into new paddock, chatting to daughters on phone, and planting stuff in veg garden and cutting bed.


Won't be watching Eurovision but used to when younger.


Oops! Forgotten to hang out the washing. See you later.

Depends how long you linger or whether you march straight through. We spent an afternoon, but you might do it in 2 hours. But it was July then.

Which petrol mower

I like Honda too, the easiest to start.
