Thank you.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Done lots of gardening in last few days, but it's on my Open Garden thread.

So much talk about gardening, a season makes such a difference, everything is growing fast now.

A doctor friend says I have pulled a muscle around the rib cage. Time is the great healer, helped along with painkillers.

I've been busy weeding in the veg garden this afternoon with a friend who came to help. Have made up beds for daughter, SIL and 3 grandsons and hoovered the kitchen and dining room floors. Matty has made an almond tart and dusted the dining room. I've made an apple and dried fruit cake. We went shopping this morning for supplies for the weekend for Sunday salad lunch for Open Garden helpers and lunch for family tomorrow. Son, DIL and baby coming on Sunday too.

So tired I fell asleep in Joe's bit about hanging baskets on GW. nighties all.

 Tuscany is much darker in real life. Must have had sun on it.


Tuscany Rose will be out in time and so is climbing Cecile Brunner.
