What a nuisance, Joyce. When we had the kitchen extension built I asked for a cool larder, so the architect drew it in a north corner. What we hadn't realised until it was too late was that he ran the kitchen radiator pipes under the larder floor!

Fairygirl, if you pop in, I have sent you a PM.

The lawn is burning up in this heat, 36° yesterday, 37° today, and the tall double rudbeckias are drooping, despite a good watering yesterday. But the upper middle bed gets some shade at the hottest part of the day and is still surviving.

I was just going to say the same as Liri, before I scrolled down and saw Liri's answer, so I will say the same.   No 2?  Will have to go and have a thunk.

RB you are very close, almost but not quite.

Back from the funeral. I would have said it was a lovely service if it had been a wedding. Sad. We went back to my friend's house afterwards.

37°. Off to watch "Escape to the Country" and "Garden Rescue" in the sitting room, which is the coolest room in the house.

Again I agree with Verdun (doesn't always happen! ) - even about putting on weight. I am now 2 1/2 stone heavier than my wedding dress size   How the heck did that happen when I work so hard in the garden? I find Charlie down to earth and likeable. And she makes me feel good because she actually looks heavier than me! But maybe that's the camera.

Gosh Papi, it's beautiful, but does make it hard for mere mortals to guess!

What's this? And this?

Morning all.
Forecast is 39°. I'm going to a funeral. An English friend in France died last week, younger than my OH. His wife is lovely, but they live a little far away to be close friends. Dreading it, he was a farmer before retiring, seemed so fit. The awful cancer.

Pottiepam, I love your dog's expression!

My first Border Collie used to steal tea bags from the kitchen bin and shred them. Such a mess!

I think the camera thread has closed. There was no space for reply and there was a box saying "start a new thread".

Fairygirl, of course you can PM me. If it's permitted.
