I have watered a lot this week. When we got back from holiday everything was very droopy and the housesitter hadn't bothered although asked and it's been hot and sunny. Now the phlox, rudbeckias, clerodendron and zinnias are recovered and flowering.

 I'm glad you had a good holiday, Chicky. I love Italy too.

Wow Fairygirl, grass never looks like that in SW France. This is my grass at the moment.

Lunch went very well, forecast was wrong again, no rain - think it's just wishful thinking. Warm, had lunch outside, cold salmon, cold chicken and a selection of salads. But after lunch I found a tomato, mozzarella and basil salad still in the fridge. Oh well, we'll have it tonight!

Morning all.

Friends coming to lunch today. We were going to eat salad in the garden, but now the forecast says rain. I have wanted rain for weeks, but not today!

Roast chicken Dove? Thought you were having ham hock for the next week!

Lesley, are you going to Sicily (your ref. Mt. Etna)? That's where we are going in September.

Fabulous views FG and Jo.

Thanks Scroggin, look forward to seeing them.

That was a silly thing for me to say, Lesley, forgot your foot. Hope it's getting better.

Not yet, Lesley. Are you doing a rain dance?

Morning all. Got excited 2 minutes ago as it started raining, but it's stopped. Haven't had decent rain for about 2 months.

Enjoy Great Dixter, Scroggin.

Good morning. I'm in SW France, will be a bit cooler this week, mid 20s, but back to the 30s next week. Forecast said rain in the night but we didn't have any. Hasn't rained properly for nearly 2 months.
