Hello Forkers ... August edition

Morning all.
Richard III last night was really good. www.anticdisposition.co.uk/tour/about-the-tour.html
I was glad I took my winter coat, no rain but it was chilly. We ate in a village restaurant first and met another English couple, very nice, sitting at the table next to us. An English woman and a French man ran the restaurant, very lively and friendly. We had fish and chips which they do every Friday. I rarely eat it as I find batter and chips too much, but it was very good and I had a salad as well. The village was pretty and had a huge Abbey church. Saint Avit Senieur.
The play was on the raised grass bit along the side of the Abbey in above photo. Still can't get photos to go under the print.

Can't get black treacle in France.  Couldn't even get golden syrup before last year.

Gala is another one that might be suitable, I like them, sweet and crisp.

This tells you all about Pink Lady http://www.gardenfocused.co.uk/fruitarticles/apples/variety-pink-lady.php  It isn't a breed in it's own right, interesting article. Sounds as though Fiesta would be suitable. I have never grown them though.

No, PP, I'm short but try standing on a steep slope on the side of a mountain covered in icy snow and looking down on people in the village below who look like ants  

I hope we can meet up then, Dove.

Lyn, you exercise all the time in your garden.

Dacha, did you mean Chamonix? The first time I went skiing I thought I would be good at it, as I rode horses I thought my balance would be good, but I hadn't reckoned on the sheer terror of heights! I was useless, trying to cling on to the mountain with my bottom

Feel sorry for all those on hols in the Dordogne, another grey cool day with the odd shower.

I hope it warms up, we are going to see an outdoor performance of Richard III this evening. Restaurant first, would have been nice to eat outside.

I hope the Norfolk weather is OK the middle two weeks of September. Dove, will you be in Norfolk the third week? 

What is your weather like? (2)

Rain, rain and more rain. Pretty windy too, not warm. Feeling sorry for those on holiday in Dordogne. Feeling happy for my plants. Bet the courgettes are swelling like mad, but don't feel like going out to the veg garden in the rain to find out.

Amazing lilies!

I haven't had email notifications today.

We went to Leclerc this morning and then the Wok place for lunch. It's been raining on and off all day. I hope it's dry tomorrow as we are going to see Richard III in the open air tomorrow evening, a visiting English Shakespeare company. I think we had summer in June, it seems to be over now.

I think Chris is great  We saw him at the Sandringham Flower Show in July.

Too churchy for me too, think of the cost of maintenance! Don't care for the renovations already done either. Wonder who will buy it.

Has rained on and off all day. We've been to the tip with an old lawnmower and an ancient gas BBQ. Also been clearing up outside between the rain, putting back garden chairs and sun loungers. Washed a load of tablecloths but they aren't on the line yet.
