Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

I did have good results, but we have been away in England for 2 weeks and housesitter didn't water properly and didn't deadhead or pick them, unlike previous housesitter. So they are now almost dead  Water and deadheading are essential.

Hello Pentillie, hope you have been OK. Wondered where you were.

Wonky, how can you be an amazing wife if you're almost invisible?

That's funny, DD, about hairdressers, I hate going to them too and they all say "isn't it thick". It can't be a compliment because then they take ages, while I fidget, trying to thin it out with an uncomfortable comb razor thingy.

I can see the ship. Beautiful, and I don't get seasick. Grandad was a Commander in the Royal Navy.

Oh dear Lesley, do you mean Wednesday next week? I do hope you and Mum are better then. How worrying. Hugs.

Had lots of notifications this morning.

Thank you for your hugs and sympathy everyone.

Today has been sort of fiddly, haven't really got stuck into anything, but nearly everything has had a good water and I've dealt with letters, emails and phone calls.

Buying new roses

I've bought both. Sometimes the bare root ones have been a bit spindly so I prefer to go for potted ones that I can choose in a garden centre, although they are more expensive

Blackbird hasn't even eaten the last bush of blueberries, they are all dried up. I bought netting in England to put on them, will be next year - if they survive the housesitters ministrations. Can't get decent netting in France.

But we ate our first sweetcorn tonight - can't do smileys, they seem to have disappeared and the oak tree is still missing, so no photos.
