Not sure yet, may be Roger Hickman but OH hasn't booked yet so don't know if you need to book long in advance. OH is buying me an eternity ring , there isn't a romantic smiley!

Looks as though it will be a sunny day today, but quite cool at the moment. Hope we can relax a bit after the BBQ.

Tomorrow I'm going to see my daughter, taking electric fencing, her birthday present.  Tuesday DIL & family are passing near here in their camper van on holiday so we'll take them out to lunch, Wednesday, packing for Norfolk. Have to take a posh frock as we are going to a birthday party at the weekend in Kent. Friday, lunch in Norwich.

Morning all. Here you are Dove, but I expect you've had coffee by now.

I'm not sure about Scabious, I think it could be a Didiscus. Mine have leaves like that.

That's so sad.

I was just about to post about rain here but it now seems trivial. Anyway, we haven't had rain for weeks, everyone getting worried about drought and there was a forest fire not far from me. Really needed rain, but not on the day of my BBQ - today. So of course it rained! The rain had woken me up in the night but cleared up in the morning and everyone was sitting outside when the heavens opened! I had put extra tables in the dining room and the veranda so we all squashed indoors and everyone seemed very cheerful.

The dead lawn has greened up already!

My memory is too dodgy to even remember! Just been reading up on Wikipaedia. I'm 6 years older than Nick. One thing I did remember was that he broke his neck and recovered. He was almost crying when he got his medal.

Have been making salads and marinades. People keep ringing up and saying can they come or they can't come after all. I asked for people to let me know before I did the shopping. Was 32 last night, then 39, now 37.

You just beat me to it, Joyce! Hurray for Nick Skelton, brilliant round in the jump off, no one could catch him!

Plant or Weed?

Thank you for sending the photo Bill and Ben, nice to get a result. I plant mine next to earlier flowering plants. Real live gardens can't have all the plants out at the same time like in Flower Show show gardens.

Morning all.

That looks complicated, Pat.

Cooler today, just wish it would rain, but not tomorrow. Going to Norfolk on Thursday. Hopefully the flower border has been rained on there.

Marinating the meat for the BBQ today and making a start on the salads.
