We had a thunderstorm in the night with some heavy rain! Not forecast. But will be a scorcher today.

I have 3 blueberries, one fruited earlier than the others, lovely big fruits. The second is fruiting now, smaller berries but the birds have found out. I put fleece on it but there was a wind in the night and it came off. The birds have stripped it.

My poker flowers only last about 2 weeks.

Forgive me Father, for I have sinned!

Oh dear. Some one donated one to my plant sale which no one bought. It's sitting in a pot in my cold frame. Perhaps I'll forget to water it.

Fine with straw if your soil texture needs improving. It will rot down.

Dove, I'm glad Ma was happy. Pimms blackberry and elderflower sounds yummy. Must look out for it when we go to England next week. I must send you an email soon about Suffolk.

It's horribly hot here, 34° still, 8.05pm. I thought de-frosting the big freezer would be a cool thing to do, but it involved boiling pans of water to help it along. Hot kitchen. Then I thought I fancied some courgette and mint soup, nice cold like vichyssoise, but that involved a large boiling pan too. Have a glut of courgettes.

At least T & M seem to have at least one good employee. Nathalie has answered on this forum several times. Thank you Nathalie.

Another hot day. Hay farmer has just been. He will deliver some hay for the horses as with this heat and lack of rain the grass in the paddocks is drying up.

Oh, Bill, I'm so sorry. So was the 'flu you had at Christmas more than just 'flu after all? You said you thought it might be. I hope Grace is managing and you are both being well looked after. I will miss you on this site.

Great photos, beautiful garden, even better in real life when it's all bigger and colours are brighter.

Have said on other threads that DD's garden is lovely, gorgeous lilies - she's worked so hard since I last saw it.
