Oh bother, I've missed a whole evening of lovely hairy female chat. Was watching all the recorded stuff on Telly such as GW, Escape to the Country, while OH was out singing in a concert.

Verdun must feel the cold, he's always getting his coat

I use tweezers for whiskers and a razor for the rest. It's funny how when you get older hair grows in different places than it did before. Not much left under the arms - not that I'm complaining about that bit!

Pam, your garden is so lovely I never imagined you could have been so ill. How on earth did you manage?

Thank you. I always leave my brollies in shops! Don't really mind wet and mild. Hate very cold.

Planting roses

When I was young the advice was to leave the graft union uncovered but now thinking has changed and the advice is to cover it and the crown to stop the rose rocking in the wind.

White Crocus

They are all beautiful. I must have planted well over 500 here over the years, but there are very few left. Do crocuses dislike hot dry summers? (Dordogne)

Buddleias are pretty tough, I've pruned mine.

Chilly today and windy and grey, but got some digging and manuring done. OH has gone to sing in his 2nd concert so I shall watch the recorded GW.

Going to England on Tuesday.  Hope weather is still good. What shall I pack?

Dove and I were pregnant together in '75 and '76! My daughter was born end of March 76. I was 24 then - so that makes me.............. must be 27  We lived in New Malden then. I bought a paddling pool that my little daughter and I used to sit in 'cos it was so hot.

I've had 2 boys and another girl since then. They were all quite small when we moved to France. Now most of the summers are hot.
