Have just read back. Wow! Wintersong, that's a beautiful car. May you have many happy years together.

My Strawberry Tea went well, 40 people came, several bearing cakes. We actually had too much cake! So we auctioned two of them and made an extra £20. Made about £50 from selling left over plants from my Open Garden day. Tickets for the tea were £9 each. For a cancer charity.

I have realised that I don't actually like cannas. I grew some last year in a pot and they did quite well. I put them in a box of compost in the garage over winter and when I got them out they were all shrivelled up and dried out. Perhaps I should have watered them, but I forgot about them. Bit of a relief because they don't really suit my garden style, which is more romantic and rose filled.

Morning all.

Strawberry Tea day today, so very busy, expecting over 40. It's in aid of Cancer Support France, a charity that helps English ex-pats in France who have cancer. http://www.cancersupportfrance.org/  Must go and make 50 scones.

I love guinea pigs but they have no sense of personal hygiene. Cute though.

Love that orange aquilegia, unusual. It looks like an exotic little bird trying to fly out of your hand!

Morning all.

Going shopping for Charity Strawberry Tea tomorrow. Sorry DD can't make it after all. Everything seems such a rush at the moment as we are off on Tuesday. I'll just have Sunday and Monday to clear up after the Tea, do Housesitter's room, HW, water everything in garden as heatwave coming, wash, iron and pack etc.

Chicky, I think I'll be in the audience. I'll have to look into those gardens.
