Mrs G, I've sent a couple more before and after seasonal pics to the Garden Gallery for you.

Weeded carrot and beetroot and planted out purple sprouting broccoli. Going shopping soon.

Here's another before and after, March and June. I think they are appearing in the wrong order.

Horses have neat feet now.

Dove, I hope the bank sorts your son's account quickly. Scary.

Mrs. Garden, Spirea "Bridal Wreath" is bigger than spirea "Snowmound". They have arching stems of sprays of tiny white flowers and slender leaves. Exochorda "The Bride" has bigger flowers and rounder leaves.

Lucky you, Chicky, Fergus Garret is the gardener at Great Dixter and very knowledgeable about plants, hope he's interesting. But good luck for today.

Morning all. There have been huge storms in France too. We were on a storm alert, but the storms were further north. Trees down, hailstone damage, powercuts etc.

Waiting for horse foot trimmer for my retired one and my daughter's two, one of hers is retired as well, 26, arthritis. My little mare has shoes so has the farrier.

I did it once, terrifying, I behaved like Panda  But daughter said she was proud of me for having a go.

She has a sweet nature too, but other horses tend to boss her about, she's always lowest in the pecking order.

Ooh, you've been talking about horse when I wasn't there! My other hobby along with gardening.

Me too rosemummy, have always wanted to ride along the beach. 


After first OH died my second daughter and I were having a few problems, so I took her on a riding holiday in Dingle in Ireland, we galloped on beaches. Just had to make sure you weren't behind another horse or you got a facefull of wet sand! It was great!

Here is my little girl, a Lusitano 15hh

Been to the dentist today.....why oh why, do they always say 'have a good rinse', while you're lying flat on your back??  


David, you are supposed to sit up before rinsing!

Lovely evening, we ate supper outside. Not as muggily hot as yesterday.

Verdun, you mentioned taking a selfie, you haven't taken any photos of your garden for ages, are you intending sending any this year? Please.

Hello Fraxinus, welcome. KEF always forgets me when she says she's the sensible one!

After the cool and cloudy morning the sun came out and it's got pretty warm. I've been planting plants that hadn't sold in my plant sale and potting up others to fill gaps later on. And sideshoot removing, weeding and tying up tomatoes.
