Thank you Joyce. I've watched some but we were back from lunch a bit late. They are raking the course now and I'm making a cup of tea.

My Sweet Peas and Alliums were over ages ago. Sweet Peas just frizzle up in the heat. Now is the time of Dahlias, Heleniums, Salvia Nemorosa, Phlox and Rudbeckias.

feeding the birds

I feed in the winter. In the summer the birds eat all my currants, blueberries, strawberries, cherries, mirabelles, grapes. Now there are beak peck holes in the unripe peaches. Could that be because I'm not feeding them?!

The bird population has increased here, especially tits and blackbirds, but 20 years ago there used to be goldfinches - haven't seen one for years. Haven't seen dead baby birds either.

I loved the rowing too and the sailing. Saw Andy as well. Now need to cook dinner.

Fairygirl said "BL - do you have Sky or something similar? They're always showing the programmes on the Horse and Country channel that he did from his yard, and all the exhibitions and training events etc. They're fabulous"

I used to have Horse and Country when I had my own Sky Card but we now have OH's card and it doesn't work any more.

I'm afraid I really like your old kitchen, apart from the pine ceiling. Cupboards look like oak, not pine. Looks just like my kitchen, warm looking, farmhousey. What was the matter with it?

Feel a bit of a twit  I said "Allegro" instead of "Valegro" on page 2. Must be because of having a piano playing OH.

Talking of stumperies, we went to the one at Arundel Castle, Sussex in 2014. It had the typical shady section with Hostas etc, but also had a sunny bit with huge Echiums.
