HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 08/06/2014 at 17:24

Had a lovely B & S lunch after church in a friend's garden. Sat and chatted. Beautiful day 27°. Feel tired, tried to sleep on the swinging seat but too many birds singing, insects buzzing, dog snuffling about etc. But having a lazy day.

Your garden is lovely, Wintersong, and so well tended. No slugs on the hosta either.

Morning all. Church, then Bring and Share lunch. I'll take the left over cake from yesterday and some of my glut of raspberries.

We went to the Tarn in 2012.

Evening all, if anyone's still here. I'm knackered, not sure why I'm not in bed! 61 people came, the sun shone, 27°. My helper friends arrived at 11am and made mountains of sandwiches, hulled 6kgs of strawberries, set tables, sliced cakes. I spent a lot of time in the kitchen boiling water for tea. When it's hot they drink so much! Last guests left at 7pm and it was 9pm by the time I'd put away all the crockery, glasses and cutlery.

Everyone was very nice about the garden, but I must admit it was looking nice, though I say it myself. June is it's best month.

It smells lovely, but has lots of vicious thorns. I have three, was five, but the deer ate the others.

Have seen it, just sat down for a coffee, in the middle of scone making.

The French do like it if you make an effort, but English with a French accent isn't enough effort!

Lovely spuds, mine are producing too.

That's right. The new leaves are red, then later, now, they are green.
