I am jealous of your lawn, Verdun. It's been so hot and dry here, lawn watering is forbidden. This was mine the end of July.

We're having a hot dry summer in Dordogne. There are now water restrictions, but are allowed to water for a limited time in the evening. Been in the mid 30s quite a lot. I don't function properly over 27°. Lawn was brown but has started greening up after the last storm.

Morning all. Welcome back Lesley, glad you enjoyed your hols.

Lovely Mummy and baby Butter photo. I used to keep a couple of Jersey house cows.

I'm going home later today. Great that it's only 1hr 20 mins away instead of 8 hours, but son No.1 is moving later this month and it'll be 5hrs instead of 4hrs away.

I think it could be alkanet.

Happy Anniversary Hosta.

Daughter, granddaughter (6) and I went for an explore this morning. Found GD's future school, in the village among the vineyards. Also found a very near neighbour, Chateau Pétrus which produces a very expensive and famous Pomerol wine. It all looks so peaceful around here, but the wine growers were doing things to the vines with very noisy machines at 7am this morning.

Everyone's gardens look so beautiful and fresh. Love blue and white. Sometimes I think I'm fighting a losing battle in SW France, especially in a heatwave year like now. The thunderstorms stop it conking out completely. My garden is now probably a month ahead of in England, but flowers don't stay in flower as long as they do in England.

Morning all.

Helped daughter No 2 move house yesterday, took cold food for 2 days in cool boxes. Lots of sorting out to do today. SIL has fixed up the WiFi. It's a lovely house, big airy rooms, about 40 mins from Bordeaux
