I haven't sprinkled the grass, too much rain for that! That was on the 8th May. Just had another event, the charity Strawberry Tea for church, but was too busy to take photos, 44 for tea, sandwiches, scones, cake, strawberries.


Here is the garden in the wind after the rain this afternoon.

Snap, pp, I sprayed my weedy drive today and half an hour later it tipped with rain. Will it work? What a waste of time an money  Will I ever get around to doing it again?

What is this weed?

I agree with nutcutlet on both counts.

Plant ID - weed?

It's not a weed in my garden, I like it. It isn't invasive either.

Been a busy day. Housesitters' rooms are ready. The young man can't manage the last two days so a friend is coming.
Picked 2 buckets of broad beans, (and some mangetout peas) now podded and in the freezer. Have tied up the tomatoes and removed side shoots. Done a load of ironing.


Weedkilled the drive this morning as weather seemed OK but 30 mins after I'd finished it poured! 

Have put away tables and chairs, got out for the Strawberry Tea. Also put away the cutlery. Have 40 - 50 each of knives, forks spoons counted into separate bags, the church stuff.

Must cook soon, Lemon sole, broad beans, mangetout peas and rice.
I hope the strike isn't on tomorrow. Really looking forward to going to Norfolk.


I hope all chesty folk feel better soon.

Can't remember if I posted any photos of my Open Garden, Wonky. People came in dribbles and drabbles throughout the day. Here is my garden on the day. But I didn't take many photos, no time.

Morning all. I slept well, didn't even hear OH getting up to let Tigger out.


Must freeze the broad beans today, make up housesitter's bed and pack. Hope we fly tomorrow, despite the French strike.

Nothing to do with gardening

Oh crikey, we are flying to the UK this week, I don't want to be an impacted passenger. I may be a left behind one as the French are on strike.

Your garden is looking great Wonky.


Hosta leaves burn in the sun in Dordogne, but they probably won't this year if it carries on like this, cooler and wetter than many parts of the UK.
