HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 07/06/2014 at 23:05

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.

 I wonder if you can see this one. David a scone is a very English thing, a sort of doughy cake served with strawberry jam and thick cream. All I could see with the last pic I sent was a photo of one, perhaps it was copyright because it came from Google.

We are going to Shropshire soon, holiday, and we are planning to go to David Austin's garden

Is it just me?

We have all that in common, Lily! Except I do like fish, unless it's not very fresh then the smell
