HELLO FORKERS! June Edition

Well done Liri.


Been warm today, could have worn a summer dress, but I've been wearing gardening jeans.


The electrician came and found a burnt phone wire, so he won't need to replace the lot, he's replaced that bit of wire and there will be some other bits and pieces eg sockets to change. The kitchen phone works


Have finished planting my pots.

Back from the Memorial Service. Our friends had a summer home in Dordogne. Thank you Obelixx, Lily and Liri.


Hope to garden this afternoon. Electrician should be coming soon to do an estimate for repairing our phone points that were damaged in a storm.

Morning all.


Looks like being a lovely day today, but storms are forecast for tomorrow, starting tonight. This weekend, when I do my charity Strawberry Tea on Saturday and DD opens her garden on Sunday, the forecast is stormy with heavy showers. Bother it. A week ago the forecast was good.


I'm going to a memorial service this morning, the same time that our lovely elderly friends, who died in a car accident, will be having their funeral in England.

What is your weather like?

We had a much better day in SW France. Started cool and grey but by end of morning the sun came out and it got up to 21°. Wonder if it's the end of the rain?

Yes, I have it. Very pretty but a bit of a thug when it gets going. I dig lots out every year.

Linda, what a shock for you, but at least he's being cared for now and hopefully you can get a good night's sleep and he'll soon be on the mend.


So strange that Scotland has had such good weather and here in SW France it's been so cool and wet. Some parts of France have had bad flooding. I went for a wander round the garden this evening and so many roses are soggy and brown. The slugs and snails have had a wonderful time.

I'm back from the anniversary party. Lovely sunny day, high time we had one. Great food, all homemade, Champagne, elderflower for the drivers, lunch in the garden, about 30 of us, mostly people I know. I love get-togethers like that as distances in France are so big it's not always possible to see people you'd like to see.


Lovely paintings Pat, you are very talented.


I hope Mr KEF isn't feeling too bruised and battered.

Morning all.


We are going to an anniversary lunch party today.


I use a laptop and I don't care for the new site, but photos are the one thing I find better, the downloading of. But I wish you could enlarge them like before.

At last, 2 days without rain. I hung up the washing today, but it's still damp as the air is so humid. Left it on the line.
