No, not the sofa, looked back - Panda pegged the washing machine on the line.

Was a busy day. Shifted manure, then OH wanted the tractor (garden one) and trailer so I sprayed the brambles in a paddock that is trying to turn back into forest. They've been cut several times, including by local farmer. Ground is very rocky, but horses' summer shelter is in that paddock and they need access to it. OH is having a clear out of a shrub bed that is past it's sell by date, also full of brambles. They will be dug out. Then I must think of which new shrubs I want and tell all my children before Christmas

Frankie was great and so graceful. Alison had a great sense of rhythm, but more like size 20+, pretty fit and full of energy though. Size 16 is now the average size of the UK woman.

Recording the weather in your garden

I used to write it on my kitchen calendar, but have forgotten in the last few years. I've only been noting exceptional or surprising weather.

Ideas for impact tree/bush

If you have bushes again your wife will have the same problem. What about a crab apple? Pretty blossom in spring, coloured fruits in autumn that you can make jelly with and feed the birds. Not too big and your wife would be able to see your daughter on the grass.

What a cute rat on previous page!

Dove, it was an Asp viper, I'd never heard of them at the time. He was allergic. But his leg swelled and was black and blue as well. He's OK now, has 2 daughters and plays rugby! It was very scarey though. The children's hospital in Bordeaux said there are about 25 deaths a year in France from Asp viper bites.

Morning all.

I hope you have a good time with your Mum and Dad, Lesley. Are they far from you?

More manure shifting today.

Not sure what to do with early growers

I did wonder about the foxgloves last night, but it was late and I was tired (an hour ahead here in France) and I have some perennial ones with narrow leaves. But they are wallflowers. In the later pic with 2 trays foxgloves are on the right, as has been said. In back of left hand tray is a weed, but I expect you realised that.

My son looks like Ben Cohen! The reason I couldn't actually drool! Son plays rugby.

No , not football or F1! Strictly is much more exciting.
