I hope the weather will be good next week when we go to Norfolk. But not too hot, don't like it when it's over 25° here. Can't garden or go for a walk when it's too hot.

I like it room temperature too, it was great from the barrel in that old tap room. Hope we can do it again one day

About daughter's horse, still waiting for daughter to decide.

I've recorded it, ITV + 1. I wanted to watch the gardening programme, All Gardens Great and Small on More 4.

Morning all.

Enjoy your holiday, Lily P. Yes, new horse has settled in, but he's more friendly with daughter's horse than my mare who he's supposed to be the companion of.

We spent the day yesterday in a campsite by a river with OH's stepdaughter and her family. They have a campervan. We went out to a lovely restaurant by the river for lunch. Hot day, 32°. Was 25° in the bedroom last night.

I agree with Joyce. Looks more like euonymus 'Silver Queen', I have one growing up a pillar. I hadn't expected it to be tall, but it's now about 7 feet.

That must be a chocolate courgette cake, looks dark.

We went out to lunch today, a country restaurant in a local village, it was nice and very reasonably priced, 3 course lunch for £16 which included choices of steak or duck. We had thought of going for a walk, but it was 34° so went for a drive in the air conditioned car instead. Now it's muggy and very cloudy.

Pleached trees?

I was going to suggest evergreen viburnums. Then you say about being too bushy so I've found a viburnum tinus grown as a tree, but I don't know if it will get tall enough. Found a pic on Google but have lost it and Internet is being too slow to get it back.
